Can fit me + 3 with 4 softcases, 1 air cylinder and associated bean bags.

Also you are a very naughty boy doing that upper speed
Allowing for speedo error ahem

Mine is a bit optimistic on the mpg, i've seen 535 before she spluttered and died with a supposed 16 miles left in the tank... if i drop her to 65 then i get about 45 mpg...
