They look like they can take it!
I dont think I have ever stopped to workout/worry about the mileage Spencer.
On average I know that a 16lt top up (that's usually after the lights been on for a while) is about 300kms worth.
I do a lot of dirt riding as well so that would impact on the mileage a lot.
There are heaps of threads about the mpg and range of these bikes amongst threads here and on www.yamahasupertenere.com
Oh, and reliability... It's a Yamaha. I dont think I have read a thread yet about one stopping or breaking down in the field.
Some folks have crashed, bent rims, punctured sumps etc, but no breakdowns from my knowledge.
