Mileage on a 1200GS

I have a friend renting a GS for the trip to CCR via canyon country. WHat sort of mileage would we expect to get on a trip like this and how big is the the tank on a 1200GS? Trying to get a feel for range.

Re: Mileage on a 1200GS

My Regular GS got 38-45 depending on how I drove it, wind, temp, etc.

I could easily get 200 miles to a tank, but never was sure how much over 200 I could get.

Hope that helps.

Re: Mileage on a 1200GS

In the higher altitudes I averaged over 50 mpg driving hard on my GS. This works out to getting over 250 miles on a tank.

It s a great bike for a road trip.
