Great thread. Yes, cagers hate following my KLR no matter how much over the limit I go. Harley riders hate it too, but can't keep up, so they pretend not to care and just follow. Kidding. Sort of.

When I want to tell someone I did not appreciate their action, I give them a thumbs down sign. It is far less likely to provoke an angry response.

It seems just about any bike I've ever owned gets about 45 mpg or so in longer distance riding. I think my Sportster was the mileage king, tho: as much as 59 mpg during very easy riding.
