In my case, there will be no offroad riding, mostly backroads, perhaps a mountain pass or 20 [Transfagaien in Romania ].

Steve sounds like a great trip. I average pretty much what markjenn does. To get decent fuel milage cruise below 4k rpm. I crossed South Dakota this summer riding into a strong head wind running 90mph and had a tank average of 29mpg. That was just one tankful once i got out of there i slowed down and mileage average went back up.
This ain't no coon hunt
