I am surprised!! A ride I took months ago was 42 MPG - albeit much rougher, enduro-ish terrain. Maybe the 2013 is breaking in?? I just hit about 1600 miles. Maybe just easier roads...maybe I'm smoother on the throttle...don't know. I'm just happy knowing that if I had to, I could probably count on 50 MPH taking it easy on dirt roads.
