Todays Ride out Fuel

Fuel used report

Cost per litre 1.029

Distance covered 192.8 miles

Fuel used 13.53 litre

MPG =64.78

Today was a good mix of riding two up on Cornish A roads, from being stuck behind bloody tractors to the occasional blast up to 80mph, plenty of twisty bits and steep hills, plus the compulsory coffee stop.So we should get similar to that on the Euro Tour, no motorways this year

PS. Couldnt get a drop more juice in it, and the fuel gauge had one segment showing not flashing
superfunkomatic and Sloth like this.

Thanks - pretty impressive.

Out of interest what was the bike saying its consumption was running at? And is it a manual or DCT?

Thanks again - useful info. Are your weights fully-togged-up or SBN (and whatever the female equivalent of that is!)? Just wondering as might need the same settings for me and the other half...

Works out to 54 MPG in US gallons. Pretty good for a 500 pound 1000cc engined bike.
