A few months before my accident on my '02, I checked my milage per brother-in-laws inquiry. 48 point something mpg. Not bad considering that I was 2-up(500 people pounds) w/full top and side cases, and keeping a steady speed was impossible. Only real bike(BMW) in a group of 2 and 3 wheeled GW, some with trailers. Couldn't set cruise for long because they would speed up/slow down constantly.
The worst I ever got on my '02 was 41-42 mpg. Best was just over 53. On my '05 I avg. 45. All calculations are the old fashion way, as I only use the OBC sometimes to track temp changes, but mostly to see how many miles before I become a pedestrian, but fueling before that happens. I've only put 1500(rain free) miles on my '05 since I got it last June. Just trying to "get back in the saddle", but may have to trike it or go to an RT because my left leg still not strong enough. I'll see what summer of '07 is like before I make any changes. Just ride it, fuel it, and enjoy!
