2005 F650GS

During break in (keeping the RPM's under 5K), my best mpg was 73 over a full tank.

On a trip last June, I recorded 67 mpg on a section including Skyline Drive and Route 250 through VA / WV. On the way home, I was lucky to get 52 MPG on a 70 - 80 mph interstate run up through the mountains on I-79.

Usually average around 58 - 60 around home with a heavy right wrist.

Speed is a big factor

Since wind resistance is a geometric progression, your speed could have a lot to do with your fuel economy.

On a trip to Alaska, if we knew that there was a gas station 100 miles away, we would run faster then if it was 200 miles away. At 55 MPH, the Dakar got around 65+, while at 65-70MPH, it would only get 55 mpg.

Good point... Its just so hard to ride 55 or 60 mph when I can do 80 to 90 mph all day long...

Of course Im paying for it...

drz400s gets 75mpg going from work and back and cruising around. It is all stock with 3X3 mod and 38 tooth rear sprocket. XR650R got 55 mpg with opened up intake and exhaust. Gearing on it was 15 up front and 44 in the rear. 950 adventurer got 40-45 mpg in stock condition Baja terrain. KTM 450 exc got 65 mpg in stock condition, even when including the kokopelli and white rim. XR600R got 45 mpg when geared up to a 15-45. WR400 was 45 mpg in stock condition. Hope this info helps out.

My 01 BMW 1150GS gets around 45 mpg average. A lighter wrist would certainly give me better mileage, but is it not about having fun while we ride? Loaded down to Alaska and back I averaged around 40 mpg.

45-50 mpg... ususally 50. Flogging it in the sand or running highway at 80-100 ... 45.

But just added a 6.6 gal Acerbis, a cargo rack and box to do Mexico adding about 65 lbs... haven't checked the mileage yet.
