I've ridden motorcycles for the last 45 years, but as I've gotten older, I started riding less and less about 5 years ago. Thats when I sold both of my big bikes and purchased this smaller lighter, more agile Kawasaki VX-300, basically just to keep my motorcycling skills sharp, and as an occasional weekend ride, and for freshwater fishing trips into the Florida backcountry. It has a 4.5 gallon fuel tank and gets 70 mpg. I've started riding it more and more often recently instead of taking my gas guzzling 4x4 GMC Sierra pickup that only gets 13 mpg. I also have an older Jeep Wrangler, but its gas mileage is pretty pathetic also. So now if I have to go somewhere by myself, I take the Kawasaki, weather permitting. As part of my preps, we keep about 50 gallons of fuel for the emergency generator for hurricane season, that would keep this little bike running for a long time.
