The GS averages 43 to 46 mpg if I keep to rpm's uner 5K. Over that it drops a bit.

I said 40-45 on my Street Triple, but it'll get anywhere from 30-60 depending on the riding conditions and who I am riding with.

Used to get 50 on summer fuel, 45 on the ethanol mix sold in Denver during the winter months.  

Moved to lower altitude in Missouri.  Now I'm lucky to get over 40 MPG, even on the interstate.

I get 60 MPG if I keep it at 40 MPH in 6th gear with a tail wind

But under normal conditions, 39-40, aggressive riding and high MPH's on the highway and that drops quite a bit.

Depends on the type of riding I am doing at the time. Aggressive puts me in the 35-40 range. Slab puts me in the 40-45 category.

43 mpg average with commuting to work and general running around. 53 or so slabbing it on longer rides in ECON mode. all bets are off when in play mode; the 1400 will decimate a tank really quick.

Lower air density,less aero drag,better gas mileage.As simple as that.FI bike are better in this because their  AFR don`t get all fcuk up do to altitude changes.

I always chuckle when dudes from mile high regions brag about their MPG,you will not get those great numbers at sea level,fur real.

Maybe she lives in Colorado or Wyoming?  Either that or the speedometer is fast which would cause the odemeter to read more miles than actual which would artifically inflate the milage.

I dunno about that. If I where to ride my 500 at the speed limit based on the speedo and shift at 4k I think I'd hafta take gas out of the tank every night. I'll bet it would get in the high 50's.

Man...I can tell I'm the slow old fart on a 650!  Lol I've almost never gotten below 50mpg on my Wee-Strom. (I think I got 48mpg once after a crazy-spirited ride...).

Once I got 60mpg on it...but that was definitely riding like a 90-year-old (kept the revs at 4K or below 100% of the time, LOL...was just curious how much of a difference it made...and it made a BIG difference!).

According to my Fuelly charts, the WeeStrom averages just over 50 with a high of 60 and low of 37.

So far on the Concours I'm averaging 40 with a high of 51 and low of 35.  Although I expect this to drop with the cold weather.  It's seems to affect the Concours mpg much more than the WeeStrom.

I have no idea whatsoever!  All I know is that compared to my SuperDuty it uses so little fuel that it's not worth keeping track of!
