Great gas mileage!

It finally stopped raining and warmed up a little (low: 39 degrees), Wednesday, in my neck of the woods.

I quickly mounted "black beauty" and took her out for a hundred mile ride. Got 53 MPG down the big hill, and 50 MPG up the hill!

Now that's what I'm talkin' about. I have approx 300 miles on the bike. I would expect the mileage to get better as I approach break in.

Maybe I should title this thread: "Big lady sings for daddy!"

"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." (Some really OLD friggin' White dude who couldn't have possibly known what he was talking about!) WARNING: Official HATE speech!

Don't know about the newer models but my 02 got 50 at 3K+ miles. Now at 13K down to about 40-42mpg. Noticed some vacuum pressure in the gas tank so performed a canisterectomy. Have yet to check the milage. Good luck with the MPG...

41 to 44

thats the range i seem to get

85,000 miles on the bike......never seems to vary outside of that.....

biggest determinent......fuel brand......i always get higher mileage with chevron premium than any other brand.....was a die hard amoco(bp) guy but have submitted to chevron for about an extra 1.5 to 2 mpg on the average....

that and a dollar must be worth a cup of coffee
