At least I know more about bike I own and rode a dozen and a half countries through then some keyboard worrier which gets his info from google and knows better than owners and MFG making it.. right?. If you Google "Yamaha t700 MPG" it comes with result above, 40MPG. It's on internet so it must be true. I'm afraid the irony was wasted @rideforzen .. maybe he needs to dig out his copy of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance or at least drop zen out of his name. Repeating knowingly false information about bike he had never seen in person ain't cool.
