fuel mileage on a gsw

I really like my new GS, the gas mileage is not as good at the 05.

I was wondering if others noticed that lower mileage as well.

thanks to all

James

My milage totally depends upon my driving style. It can be quite good, but it can also be quite devastating. Overall I am quite pleased with the economy. averaging about 5.5L/100km.

Oh yes, an adition question? How many miles does your bike have? My fuelconsumption went down after about 7000km (when it was properly run in).
