and another thing ...
I think that because our speedos are so inaccurate (they nearly always read high), it's likely that the fuel economy on these bikes is worse than it looks, and that this likely accounts for some of the variation. Mine currently reads about 10% high, at my present state of tire wear and load; I've seen it as low as 5% with new tires.
(I realize there are those who say that the odometer is accurate and only the speedo is not, but I do not see how that can be true, since they both receive the same input from the same source, and the accuracy of that source varies widely based on many factors.)
