As Baja Dad said, the 15 mph average was dunes. We were doing an experimental ride of 60 miles in big dunes. At the end we had actually done around 65 miles because of zigzagging and mistakes. I had 4.2 gallons of gas. I ran out completely just before the end. That's 15.5 miles per gallon (6.5 km/liter) average. I had no idea the mileage would be that bad. Normally when I need long range I carry an extra 1 gallon in a bottle on my belt. I didn't take it that time because our test was so short.
