ok so this summer i never really got a good long ride in so i dont have a take on the mileage per gallon. This coming summer i'm taking a good long trip, and i would love to map out my gas station stops. i have two good stretches where we do not see a town for at least 50 miles apart. does or has anyone know exactly how manny miles i can take to a gallon on a warm bike?

it would be nice to see where to fill up and plan. thanks guys.

OK... I'll probably get some flak for this one.... I have the Cobra AutoTuner... V&H Twin slash staggared... Cobra PowerFlo intake.... when riding solo... I get 36mpg.... 2 up... 30mpg. these are based on my recent riding in fairly cold weather. And it matches the fuel gauge/ trip Odometer pretty close.... after I filled the bike up... I ride until the 1st square goes away... I look at the the trip odometer... usually somewhere around 37.... next square... around 72.... but when doing the math... it comes out 36mpg solo.

I have heard on here about people getting 48mpg... wish I did! But honestly... don't push past a 1/4 tank.... rodekill is right... cool as **** riding.. people say "dang! look at the hard mofraki!!!" when you are pushing it they say "Dang! look at that fool that ran out of gas!!... keep driving Ethyl... he's a dangerous biker..."
