Did't know where to post this so i figured the best place would be where the owners of this bike talk about their beauties.

Im planning to do trip next summer but i can't really decide on motorcycle. Im really attracted to the Africa twin because it proven itself and the looks but one thing i cant figure out is the fuel economy. One says 1:15 (1 liter for 15km) others say 1:20. If i would go for the AT it would prob be a '93-95 model. Anyone can give me a indication what the fuel consumption would be with regular highway cruising at 70-80mph and 40-50mph on B roads and gravel.

Over the last 6,000 miles on my RD04 I've averaged just shy of 50mpg. (49.95mpg if you want to be exact!)

ATGreg, congratulations! Looks like you even made a service port on the headers. So you have equipment to measure lamba? Awesome job, only those pictures are way too big for me. Can you post more smaller ones?
