    Just curious what kind of gas mileage you all are getting (road riding). Thanks.

    I get about 65 mpg. I run 20-50 weight oil because I live in a hot climate, I'm sure I would get better mileage if I went to a lighter weight oil. I like to twist the grip, too.

    Wound out (60) on the road with a 13/50, I get 55 to 60 mpg. That's low road gearing. In the dirt with same, I get 65-70. Stock gearing (14/50), should get 65-70 mpg on the road in flat terrain at 60mph with no wind or bags.

    The two times I've really tried to accurately judge mileage, I've calculated around mid 80's with a combination of off road (30 mpg or so) and road (full bore) with and without head winds. I'm sure under ideal conditions and a careful throttle, you could squeeze 100 mpg out of the beast (and there are reports here of that being done). Anyway you look at it, its better than your Grand Cherokee's 20 mpg. Ride on. Tom

    Life time on mine and I got it used with about 400 miles, I get 79.5.



    Very seldom ride over 45, as I don't see a l ot of highway, mostly in town, gravel roads on desert flat trails.



    I get even better when I remember to shut the gas off.
