This is what I get withmy '82 1100i. During a full day of back road cruising at 50-60 mphI'll get 43-45 mpg. Daily commuting (about 80 miles per day with a mix of stop/go, county roads, and freeways) I'll see 40-42 mpg. On a road trip going down the intersate at 75-80 mph I'll getabout 35 mpg. When I get to areas where I can go crazy and run 85+ for long stretches it drops off to about 30 mpg.

The lowest I've ever gotten is 25 mpg. That was on the interstate in Kansas with a serious headwind. It was definitely not enjoyable.
The best is 47.8 and that is tikitouring around the backroads.

I get 43/44 on my wing if I keep it under 75. I usually turn on reserve around 175ish. Has been like that for ever.

I did some leisure riding and got 41mpg After some hard riding to and from work it droopped to about 37, Mellow for me is rarely going over 3k and a hard rid eis winding every gear to 4500 or more.

thats also a factor guys when do you shift how hard do you accelerate. What kind of roads. My trip to work is open with only 5 lights in a ten mile trip. Going to work I keep each gear at 3k butu comming home I wind her out to 45 for the first 3 gears then almost coast in 4th doing 45 - 60
