out of either of my bikes but hit 55mpg on the 1990 once and that was riding very consertivly. I don't think I've ever gotten less than 42 mpg out of either bike off road. typically 42-45. One time I was getting 38 mpg on the 09 but that was when I had it jetted really fat. didn't stay that way long, I was experimenting.
