Nice ride. I will look forward to hearing what your real world mileage is like. If I had a cool 10k lying about, I would be sorely tempted.

Frankly I think that is a great idea, and if it was available around here, I would avail myself of it. Good news for NM residents, they opened an Indian dealership in Albuquerque.

My mileage averages about 68 mpg. I have had a tank where I got 70, and one where I got 65, but that was with a lot of head wind. Usually it is 68.
