Later model bolt has about a litre more, and a fuel light that is more consistent.

Stock on the highway (any speed) I was getting 245 to the light, could push to 285 before refuling.  Around town was 200.

With the Micron I got 220 around town to the light.  On the highway 245 - 260 to the light.

When I geared it up I still get 220 around town, but then I'd get up to 280 km to the light.  Best I went to 315 km on 13.4 litres, so almost a litre left.  I've been consistently over 300 km on a tank on the highway.  So that is high 40s per US gallon.

Nice! Is that an X or XT?  It's got a duckbill.

It's the XT.  The X doesn't come in Red for 09.  I photo shopped the fender, liked it, so I got one and put it and the headlight guard on.  Helps reflect it's 'Adventure Sport Touring' designation to those that don't know it and.... like I said, I like the looks.

Sounds like a movie title.  

The Uly is kinda like my wife - gets better looking every time I lay eyes on her.

Got my licence back after suspension, so I went to a track day to learn how to ride again.  As you can see I'm no hot lap rider; just enjoying myself again.

I didn't bother to change from the dropped pegs which was a mistake, I was forever lifting my foot up and losing time onto the straights.  The extra 10 HP that the old Micron had would have been nice, but I'm not sure I would have been up too much more than I had.

My morning ride is in the company of 3,000 or 4,000 cars and trucks.  Still enjoy it, but I'd rather yours.

Yes, very nice.  The tailbag almost seems to offset the fairing, it definitely fits in.

Thanks.  The low fuel light has been coming on at about 160-170 miles and averaging 38 mpg.

Sounds like you can make 200 miles on reserve then - good info, thanks!
