Does anybody want to talk about gas mileage??? NOT impressed at 1000 miles. But, it really doesn't matter, it's averg. at 34 now, I look for that to improve. Some feed back would be appreciated.
What octane do you run? With or w/o ethanol?First ride home was ten daze and a tad over 3k smiles. Avg mpg is 43 and change. Saw 50s tooling the blue ridge. Beating feet on the super slab cuts it bak in the mid low 40s. So far have racked up 4k, avg is still hangin at 43. poncho
I don't really remember what I got before I finished breakin. But I got around 40 mpg average on a 6,000 mile trip out west. Of course in Wyoming, cruising at 80 on the freewayI only got 35 mpg. On a day ride recently, riding slower, and lugging it down some, I got 50 mpg. There is hope.Does anybody want to talk about gas mileage??? NOT impressed at 1000 miles.

10000 miles 2015 RM - 40 mpg averageMy first 14 was getting 29.1 at 1000 miles at 70 mph in cruise. Ended with average today at around 500 miles on my new one with average right around 35MPG during initial breakin. I only see it getting better as it loosens up. Much better than 29 on my first one. I know on my Cross Country started in 30's and today with the wife riding it, she got over 47 with 15,000 on the clock. My poor mileage may be related to my big butt and wrist angle on throttle.
