2004 DL650 with >28,000 miles. Stock screen on low (for summer) with Givi 46 and 21's. Total weight with rider, gear, luggage and stuff is about 220 I figure.

For three legs of the weekend's trip:
First tank: 195.2 miles, 4.627gals => 42.19MPG. This was all freeway (yuk), 70-80mph.

Second leg: 183.2 miles, 3.748gals => 48.88MPG. This was all two-lane fun roads (like some of Hwy 58 for the CA crowd), 20-85MPH

Third leg: 195.2 miles, 4.149gals => 47.05MPG. One half freeways, one half fun roads, varying from bad headwind to some side and tailwinds, 20-85MPH.

36.7 MPG

65 Temp./ 10 mph winds

Windshield in lowest position, scorpion pipes, and Givi E52 topcase

That said I am amazed at most of your milege. I have yet to break the 40 mpg mark.

PS -- i don't spell or grammar check in most cases, but props if you can use my quick typing to debunk the factual foundation of my arguments!!

I've been out 58/Park Hill Road/33 three times in the last two months. Can't get enough of that ride.

Last time out I ran into a flock (Swarm?) of big-assed grasshoppers at 90+, running that last bit of straight road past the Soda Lake area, before the twisties and then Mckiterick.

Yuck. ;-)

Took some scrubbing to get those big boys off.

Before I put the new ECM, the Staintunes, and the side cases on I was getting in the 42 to 43 range.

04 650, 12k miles, screen on highest (legal) position.

87 octane

My own exhaust no FI calibration changes.

total weight with gear aprox 230 pounds. no side bags

254.5 miles
4.973 gallons
51 mpg

Conditions were low 60's to low 70's. Winds light variable

Started out on slow trails then proceeded to mostly two lane ending with about 30 miles of high speed 4 lane.


I was suprised at how good this was. For sure it is attributed to my mostly two lane and low speed trails stuff.
