    As my wife always says, "less is more".

    Sometimes I'm not sure what she's actually talking about?

    Less is more, more or less.

    My thumbs want to be free, free of any rules (including rulers & tape measures). If “the man” wants to be in charge, pick on the middle finger for rules.

    But I get what you’re saying I usually only ramble and bable on when I talk so you’re pretty safe here on the forum since I gotta type it out...one thumb at a time.

    Well on that note, here ya go:

    From Lake Mead Blvd farthest east fuel stop to Logandale, cruising at 50-55 MPH, about 80 miles at 65.0 MPG, with 1140 cc 4 cylinder, including a few photo ops and a couple side trips (boat ramp and short section of Valley of Fire)

    Return on Interstate 15 at 65-70 MPH, about 56 MPG

    165 miles total trip

    That looks like it was a nice ride. Good MPG especially for that size bike. My 86 radian averages 36 mpg and is only a 600. I usually take off fast, it doesn't like to be slow, and go about 75mph most of the time.

    My Sportster 1200 does about 54 mpg average. My XR500 (that I used to have) only did about 30 at best.

    My 1976 Honda CB750F typically got 38 MPG.
    Mt 2014 CB1100 typically gets 48-54 MPG at highway speeds....I was relaxing today!
