Yesterday, Monday 21st, blue sky sun shining went for a fairly gentle ride around Wales 215 miles.
I was doubtful if I could make it back home to the supermarket I filled up from to start. Made it with range showing 8 miles left, phew.
However I only managed to squeeze 15.14 litres in = (64.5 mpg uk) (53.7 us gal - I think).
So range reading 8 when in fact I had well over 20mls left.
Bike read 62 Av MPG .
Contrast that with another Welsh ride on Saturday 19th 280 miles (escaping the royal wedding) sunny again roads nearly empty, this time with my mate on his GSXR750.
Only managed around 42 mpg uk.
Blue Naked 2015 ABS model. PCV, Nitron Ntr-1 shock, MRA screen(modified) Puig crash bungs, HEL lines and EBC-HH pads, job done. (Riding since 1959.)
