03 Touring....

Drove up to Albuquerque from Houston, yesterday, about 860 miles. Those interested, we took 290 to Austin, then up through Abilene, Lubbock, Clovis, Santa Rosa to Abq.

First 500 miles no cruise, varying revs, after that pretty much all cruise.

Our MPG sucked major ass (17.8) BUT, we only have about 950 miles on the vehicle.

Also, we are the beneficiaries of being able to drive about as fast as we want. 75 to 80 mph the whole way, in a viscious headwind, which I would conservatively estimate at 25 mph. Flags were straight out. As a matter of fact, our temporary tag was ripped off the rear of the X somewhere between Sweetwater and Lubbock. We have nothing to show we didn't just steal the thing off the lot. Charlie Thomas is going to overnight us a new tag tomorrow.

Great ride. Smooth, quiet (even with the additional wind.)

Those of you on the fence about this thing get off and go buy one!
