No I didn't run it empty so I can't verify anything other than the average MPG's are what the computer said.
The comment about pushing the bike also became apparent. Accelerate into the turns and forget about scrubbing off any speed in it. Power on - Traction!!
I did not read "keeper" anywhere in this post ???? a Stelvio or Superduke is in your future................
