Just wanted to drop a note about mpg. There's been a lot of discussion over how some members get significantly better mileage than others. My computer has been indicating 47mpg for my 150 mile daily commute pretty consistently. After taking devi's advice, I started figuring it manually using the trip. I'm actually getting 43mpg. A difference of 8-9%. I still think that's pretty good considering I spend most of the commute at around 85mph

Crash, most of your fuel drains away when the bike is lying on its side..... :wave:

One other thing I noticed last week-- I didn't ride the bike for about 6 days straight and let it sit out in the sun. I had less than 50 miles on the trip the next time I started it, but the fuel light came on immediately after leaving the parking lot. I usually get around 145 miles to a tank. These suckers really seem to let a lot of fuel evaporate when they sit out in the sun.

I've been getting 39 MPG on average. The furthest I've gone on my '06 is 172 miles on a tank (without running out).

Trip computer is fairly accurate, now that its figuring US gallons. Its typically only a couple of MPGs higher than calculated the old-fashioned way.
