    For my purposes here, I'm not gonna include race-pace consumption or vehicles with 4 or more wheels. Obviously we're gonna get a pretty wide range for each one depending on setup and riding style. Personally, I'm not including specific stupid measurements like the time I was WOT on my little GS for a tank... and then the push to the next station. For the record, the forum software does not love my tabs, and the display is much better with the proper spacing.

    I've only put a few hundred miles on KLRs. Sold the last one today. Never got a good handle on the mileage.

    '00 R1100RT with Techlusion, GS intake tubes & Denso IK22 plugs = 38 to 42 mpg. I've gotten as low as 33 with strictly cold weather commuting.

    It did slightly better in stock trim but I ain't goin' back to that surging bitch.
