what do you mean where I got my information?
55kmi on the Dakar should be enough to know what mileage I got on average
and my still new to me Sertao in the few tanks of gas so far did get around 50mpg, between 48 and 52 to be precise
and I am absolutely sure my riding style did not change
if at all in cold, wet weather I am a little more cautious onthe throttle
