What kind of mpg are you getting when cruising along at 80mph? I am contemplating a DL650 as my commuter bike. I do 90 miles a day and nearly all of it is on the highway.

Thanks..

Which bike do you think would tour better? I am actually looking at a 2000 Tiger. It has the 885i engine. I hear the front springs are quite spongy but that can be fixed.

Do you think the DL650 will be as good a tourer as its big brother the DL1000 or might it be too buzzy? I have to admit I like the price of the 650 much more than the 1000.
