Re: from North Central AL.
Helmet big time!!! Really. I never wore one except for on rare occasion a regular bicycle helmet. (silly looking things) After I bought an even sillier looking one (that I really enjoy and looks like a 1940's sort of thing) I wore it more. I noticed I felt safer but oddly, cars pulled out in front of me less. I think it is a subtle que that I am on some thing going faster then a bike. If you read a lot on the helmet thing, you will want to wear one. Makes good sence. Pads, Great idea and I think about em a lot. Sad to say it is one of those things I will probably get around to right after I needed them.
200 MPG on a 2 stroke is hard to attain. After a great many builds I have not come close to that but I have only built with stock kits and engines.
