Not sure what you get out of fanning the flames. Glad you are not spraying gas/petrol on this [emoji2]
I think I got all the answers I'm looking for and you all have been helpful, though some are irritated by this as to "why is this guy doing this? Why can't he get it? Grrr"
I'll share the...
Yes of course, to calculate energy, I need power, which is Vols x Amps. Simple voltmeter reads voltage. I would use a DC power meter.
Question about the low voltage - how low can the H twins go down to and still perform ok? Is 11v too low?
I'll be equipped with energy meter to monitor the energy spent, do that I know when to turn back.
I'll go for a 40 miles loop, so that if I ask anyone to get my van to pick me up, help us there within b 30 mins.
My biggest pain now is to get the bike running [emoji30]

I really appreciate, respect and agree with what's been said. I just want to try this out, just for my understanding on whether it is possible and...
Oh!! My bad. In my post, I mentioned 250w. I meant 250whr.
Since I'm going with LED, I'm estimating 20W (15w for headlights, 5w for other misc) for electricals.
I read somewhere that coils pull about 2A, which would be about 25w. Could you please confirm that?
