True story

Filled up in Lee Vining (Mono Lake) torqued up thru Yosimite 35 to 45 mph (park speed limit) A couple stops for pics, over Tioga pass and out the west side down to Oakhurst.. This is the truth part... 146.7 miles... 2.03 gal.. = !!!
Ok. So that was an exception..

I do get 60 mpg fairly often, mid 50's freeway speeds ( 5k rpm / 80 mph indicated) or 75 - 80% effort in the twistys...

A trip thru Nev back roads next month will give me a realistic off road milage.

Jessy bags, tailbag, engine guard, and 190 lb rider.. using 89 octane.
