I read somewhere that these bikes get about 55MPG.
Is that real or just on paper?
Several weeks ago I went for a Sunday afternoon ride and kept track of my mileage. I was riding about 55-60 mph for 2/3rds of the way and then up around 70 mph the last third, all on flat prairie landscape. My average was 52 MPG (US gallons) or 62.5 MPG (Imperial gallons).
Theoretically I should be able to go 200 miles on a tank but if I have a heavy head wind it would be nice to have a fuel gauge to be know whether or not to press on to the next town.
Now that our darn postal strike is over hopefully I will get my fork seals and get back to riding it again.
