Hey dduelin ...

That's great MPG's ..... Just for reference ..... which windscreen do you have installed and what side and/or top bags did you have on during your ride ??

Thanks - Larry

Just today I took a ride with an eye toward getting a good mpg return without holding up traffic and still have fun. I picked a route where I would get out of urban traffic quickly then ride over 100 miles with a return to the same gas station, same gas pump and still have fun doing it. I did not exceed 60 mph and most often was between 50 and 60. I know this will not excite many riders and ADV riders in particular but it was a nice change of pace for me and a beautiful day to just be out riding. The thread has returned recently to fuel mileage and I had not had mpg on my mind for a while so it was fun for me. My bike turned 9500 miles on the ride today.

119 miles/1.44 gallons = 82.4 mpg on 10% ethanol regular. I am 5' 6" and 155 lbs.
