Well I need to update that.

I just had to switch to reserve for the first time, 178 miles of riding in Washington DC traffic, not easy on the throttle. Supposed to have a gallon on reserve so I had another 50 miles to go. So at about 200 miles I will start getting really nervous.

Today, took a 110 mile cruise with my son. Used 2.02 gallons, just about 55 mpg. Don't know what my son got on his Streetglide but he's usually 3-5 mpg less than my Sporty. Nice weather.. 10-15 mph winds and speeds of 55-65mph.

Manteca to Fremont and back over the Altamont pass and Sunol grade, a distance of 110 miles showed a 45 mpg.
