You should have a 48-52 range. I bet that is where the majority fall.

Ride it hard in traffic and it will be close to 40mpg's. Ride it smooth on the open highway and it will be almost 50mpg's. Lots better than my pickup at about 20mpg's :lol: And a helluva lot more fun too :twisted:

I have been getting a consistent 51plus mpg. since I first got her two weeks ago. I have to believe that as she loosens up it will only improve.This includes riding to work 30 miles and taking her on side roads where I can open her up over 100 mph indicated.

After my first fresh tank of gas I got 48.9mpg.

Half of those miles were city riding and the other half were back road riding with intermitent stops, off shoots etc.

sideways and smiling

So far the high has been 52.3, almost all highway & the low 47.5, mostly commuting around town. F150 gets 17 mpg, so I'm a happy man if I'm filling the bike & not the truck.

I have been getting a steady 48-49 MPG with mostly "commuting" type miles. IE; mixed highway/city with the majority being city type miles. On mostly highway type rides with minimal stop & go I average around 54 MPG plus and that is with speeds nicely above the posted speed limits. (did I just say that out loud?)
