Depends, if you can ride at a steady pace fuel consumption will be very decent.
If have taken alot of boring trips to work on which I managed to do 46mls/gallon while travelling at 65-80mph.
Never gotten it under 42mls/gallon though with spirited riding but then again I don't have that many twisties in my neighbourhood so ymmv.

Help....WAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

So I went for another awesome ride, come back home and park the MM next to the GSA in tight quarters... Had to dismount on the right (non-kickstand side) and the bike starts leaning and leaning until we, the bike and the rider, are pinned against my parked bicycles... I hear a CRACK...!
S H I T!!! the right front plastic molding now has a hole in it. Does anyone have any spare parts? suggestions???

Justin, I don't think that would work for the mm...different faring (headlight surround) set up than the Enduro too... Thanks though!

I remember having seen HP2E parts on a MM :

Should fit perfectly but will cost more $$$ to go for CF panels.

I'm waiting my HP2E CF parts in a few days, I will try if interested.

Sometimes on Ebay you can find a panel but not very often.

Megamoto panels

Hey Hank. I have some carbon fiber panels that I am selling. They are new, but will take some finish work, ie painting. I bought them new, paid a bunch and then bought a HP2 Sport. Still have the MM. My idea was to copy one of these cool paint jobs like GSMarc or HP2 Saucy and leave the center clear coated carbon and white around the edges.. I got them without paint.. Let me know if these interest you. The stock panels are over $500 each.

I'm glad you guys talked me out of selling my MegaMoto. I'm "reborn" again with my bike. And now I'm planning a Memorial Day PCH tour. I'll do my best to include a Ride Report in the "Day Trippin'" section.
