We can't say the same about you. :-) Elderberries I believe.

I believe Stephen is working on it right now. It'll be nice to have lights again - I've been without the high beam for a couple months.

Glad to know my scoot doesn't smell too bad. I switched to Motul, so I can't say my exhaust smells like strawberries anymore.

Nah, same price, I just thought it would be fun to try out something else. I like the way it smells - meaning it smells like a two-stroke - but I can't pretend to notice any difference at all. The containers are a little easier to fit in my glovebox, and the built-in funnel in the cap is pretty f'ing cool.

I wonder if perhaps it's a little different viscosity than ipone though - it seems my bike is a little richer since I switched to it, which would mean something about viscosity but I don't know enough about fluid dynamics to really comprehend *what* it means. Regardless, anything that allows me to lean the bike out a little without going lean is a winner - in the dead of Minnesota winter I was getting a rather stellar 40 MPG. Now I'm back up to around 60. Jetting makes a pretty huge difference in gas mileage, and working on a Stella requires big changes to jetting...
