I'm getting 42-44 mpg (us). 1,600 miles, average speed is around 60, all paved rural roads, driving habits moderate, tailbag only on the rear.

Taking a road trip this week, will see what effect higher speeds and luggage have.

Yesterday's ride states:

Distance: 192 miles
Ave MPG: 46.2
Ave MPH: 34.2

Filled up as I stopped for a pee, but distance to empty was still 26 miles according to the computer.

I am a conservative rider, and have yet to see 48-49 mpg. Pretty much 42-44 for me, US gallons. I was riding with two FJR1300s last Saturday and we all got the same mileage. I was thinking, they have 500 more c.c.s and 35 more hp, I should be doing better. I am now running full synthetic with the odometer at 900+ miles, but have not noticed any change. The weekend before I was riding with a Dyna and Street Glide, both got better mileage than me.

that's pretty much what the Striple guys have been reporting... high 30's to mid 40's, wrist-depending

well, according to the computer, I noticed the following consumptions:
50mph ~ 70mpg
60mph ~ 64mpg
70mph ~ 54mpg
80mph ~ 38mpg

Was doing some "testing" on the highway home. Sat at each speed for about a minute or two.

The wind has been fairly gusty in Louisisna with all these fronts moving through. I have noticed a difference in mpg depending on wind direction, but again even with the wind nothing close to 49 mpg. Heck, I'd have to be riding with the Rebel 250 Owners Association to get that.

On my test ride, Tiger 800, I set the computer to read instant MPG (US). At 6th gear, 65mph, maintaining the wrist "locked" it read anywhere between 40-42mph. Calm winds. The only time I saw 70mpg was on deceleration as in slowing down without going through the gears.

Only had mine for three days and 228 miles. Last fill up was 3.3 gal (US) after 150 miles, or 45.5mpg.
