I find with my wife's current 650GS, her real world average is about 53 with mix road/off-road so I always figure on the low side. This bike should be good for 180 miles pretty easy, with low fuel-light coming on around 150 ~ assuming no fuel gauge.

I agree most cases where gas can be had within 200 miles - but unfortunately we all get in situations where the route is longer than expected and this bikes tanks still seems a tad small.

Maybe the ADVTank guys will seize the opportunity!
