What do you guys think?

Rare find. Plastic or meal cases? Adventure model? Prices vary by region. Check with your insurance agent on replacement value. NADA gives an average retail value for '02 non-adv GS as $5350. Not unusual to see a clean 40-70k miler going for $6,000+. If you add another $1k you're still not above $7500. The way I look at it is unless price includes extended svc contract you could be on the hook for anything from spline shaft to seals or ABS pump. Level III doesn't include things like internal tank hoses or tires. Seller needs to produce proof of time dependent annual service otherwise could still defined as neglected.

Lifetime MPG for my 2001 (single spark) is 42.04. Recently. I have noticed the mileage dropping a few 10ths. I believe its time for a tuneup, valve adjust, TB balance and new front brake pads (they are OE)....maybe some new brake lines.

Question is, should I also wash it? It hasn't had a wash in two years.

46 mpg two up 65 mph and 80 mile days.When the yellow warning light comes on I still have a whole day of riding before I think of filling up.Just pokin a little fun.This thread is about mpg,not miles per day like some people think they need to throw in.If you are going 82 mph for 800 miles per day you are most likely sitting on the interstate.If you want to enjoy riding why would you sit on the interstate?

So do you fuel up every three days or top it off each morning?

04 GSA w/Jessy boxes loaded for bear, About 37 mpg when held at a steady 75 mph and much worse when riding for fun, better when out of California and the crapy fuel here. Well it seems I always get better milage when out of state, not really sure why maybe just less stop and go

02 1150 with GSA gas tank and stock system cases - I get 36mpg in the city - 43-45mpg slabbing at 75-80 mph.

I have noticed that the top case increases fuel consumption a bit....

You've been riding too close to the Prairie Island Nuclear Power Station and your brain is, well...you have my sympathy...

I don't use heavy water for washing my BMW. You see, here in AL, we use coal to fire our power plants...and fortunately, we have the 6th best water quality in the US that comes into our houses.

But, I like Minnesota...was birthed there...really like the MN indians...they grow wild rice.

I used to haul ore out of Taconite Harbor and fish as a boy in Lake Plantagenet...ride my bicycle to the Minneapolis airport and watch the Lockeed Connies perform mag drops prior to takeoff.

Oh, what a wonderful life...

...then I bought a BMW motorcycle.........
