Yes, nice bike I had an 85 454LTD. I rode it for year until I crashed it. My own stupid fault. I did manage to ride it 25 miles home with a twisted fork and near busted left ankle.

I Can't Figure It Out

I have the DCT. I mosey along at an easy going pace and I get 63-64 MPG. I absolutely flog the throttle while leading a bunch of hooligans in my club on a ride through the twisties and I get 72 MPG.
