Hi I'm Jeff & I'm a dataholic

Just gotta love the numbers, as of today:

I've owned the bike 2,642 days and ridden 148,234 miles for an average of 56.11 miles per day. I have used 3,762.2 gallons of gas at a cost of $7,538 for an average cost per gallon of $2.31. My average mpg is 45.43. I refuse to keep track of the cost of oil, filters, tires, final drive, tranny etc. This is by far the finest bike I have ever owned, (now over forty bikes), and will make a contribution to this site this evening as it has made it even better.

WIth a pasion for stats like that I am surprised your not watching the World Series! I agree, best touring bike by far. If you like numbers, check out the safety survey numbers at http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/showthread.php?t=40077.

Re: Hi I'm Jeff & I'm a dataholic

Way to go. That is quite a bit of miles Something doesn't quite add up with your total miles, mpg, and gallons of fuel. I could be wrong, wouldn't be the first. If your Miles and Gallons are right, I think it should be around 40 MPG.

I never keep track of these things. I don't want to know how much I spend on gas and bikes. But since I've never bought a nice car or truck to drive around, I have some money to waste.

Just like alcoholics can't handle their booze ... I guess Jeff can't handle his data.

You know, assuming an average of 40mph (typical for rural riding), this is equivalent of 3705.85 hours in the saddle (or 308 days of 12hr rides).

Re: Hi I'm Jeff & I'm a dataholic

Avg cost per gallon = $7,538 / 3,762.2 gallons = $2.003615 per gallon, so it's 13.26% cheaper to drive than you thought!!

Gallons should be 3,267, got fat fingered.
