fuel consumption

Dakar consistantly gets 65 to 70 under normal conditions of 70/75 mph. Not much less when you really hammer it.

Never

Checked when Rogues is riding it, I know I don't get that high. Around 50 is what I remember.

When I am out having too much fun on the 650, like when I followed you guys up to Monterrey, I only got about 50 mph, but that was with the throttle wide open most of the time

Thumb 60MPG

I spent a month on a loaner F650GS (non-PD model), and averaged 60MPG most of the time. I had a blast, would love one if they weren't so damn expensive.... Its a great bike for our local goattrail roads...

(note the width of this TWO WAY road...)

no, actually, its Schultie Rd, up above Laurel, east of highway 17, and south of Summit, along the route of the old Suntan Express Train that used to run from Los Gatos to Santa Cruz. Approximately where the red cross is here...

its not a terribly useful road, I was just exploring squiggly lines... parts of Laurel Rd are unpaved, btw. its all rural-residential, so you have to keep your speeds way down, anyways, the natives drive these bigass 4x4s and those roads are *narrow* with blind turns up the whazoo...

here's another... Buzzard Lagoon Rd, above Nicene Marks State Park, off of upper Eureka Canyon Road and Highland Rd.


(this picture was later on the same day, heh)
