second that !!!!

best Touring bike in the world .... more range than any other OEM bike

Moto Guzzi Norge 1200. I usually fill up with my friends so we can compare mileage at around 150 miles. That being said, I have a 6 gallon tank and I can get near 47mpg. So 230 to 240 is pretty good. I usually don't want to push it past 225 since my mileage can vary from 42 to 47.

Another vote for the older Connies. I routinely go 200 miles on a tank.

+1. My old Connie was getting 49.8 MPG (after I had around 15,000 mi on it). Assuming you could access all that fuel, that would mean over 375 mi. per tank. I never tried it myself, mind you.My bladder would need emptying long before the tank needed filling.

2006 Triumph Tiger 955I. 6.3 gals, consistent 48 mpg for last 25k miles, aggressive riding style, race can with off road ecu tune, at altitudes of 5k plus ft, 270 lb rider/gear/tailbag, easy 250 miles before I refuel, right around. 300 miles I imagine if I ran it dry.

My '92 BMW GS Paris Dakar had a 9 gallon tank with a range of 360+ miles. Once did over 400 miles and was running on fumes when I pulled into Cheyenne, WY at night.

as mentioned, the ST1300 has nearly an 8 gallon tank which even at 40MPH is good for 300 miles, bone stock. Odds are good you'll want to stop before it needs to. They also don't break, have good weather protection, and are more comfortable than most for the taller rider. Clean copies used are a pretty good value too. The only bike I'm aware of with a larger tank, stock, is a GSA.

My naked 2000 ZR7 would get an easy 220-230 miles per tank. My '07 650 V Strom can easily do the same.

2007 KLR 650 with an aftermarket 6.6 gallon tank. 247 mile before reserve. 20 miles of reserve, but the tank is so big and goes lower than the carb, you still have about 1 to 1.5 gallons you can't use.
