fuel economy

well ladies and gentle men, my father and i both on our bikes went out and ride yesterday to the local track to watch a friend of the family race shiftercarts.....there were some good roads and a few twisties...my father was scraping his V-star's pegs on one turn...( i told him he needs a sportbike if he's gonna show off..lol) anyway when it came time to fill up on our way home my tank took 2.5 gallons of premium petro and i marked 125 miles.... i knew it was over 40 mpg when i did the math in my head but when i got home and used a calc it spit out 50 mpg
for a vehicle that fast to get better mileage then a Civic is fantastic

I thought the same thing when i did the mileage on my bike. I can't remember if it was 40 or 45 mpg. Either way i was impressed.

If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

Our F4 got somewhere in the 40's, but I was disappointed upon moving up to the XX because it only got somewhere in the low 30's. I think we'll stick to 600's from now on. Just as fun as the big bikes, but they get better mileage, handle better, cheaper insurance, etc.

The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

YET my '91 Mazda 2600 4X4 gives me better milage then my Honda 929. Also the 929 is not for grunt (short runs around town) runs, but hwy. Though the 600r is better then the small truck.
