One thing you won't see on a Harley



My best average mpg to date. Actual mpg, if typical, will be 1 to 3 mpg better.

See what happens when you have to slow down to let those Harley riders keep up.

That's great, 5 mpg better than I've ever seen on my 400. From what I have experienced, when you calculate your mileage at the next fillup it will be even greater than what is displayed.

I think I'd rather stay ahead of all that noise. D*mn the extra fuel consumption.

Yes, typically, no less than 1 or more than 4.
That is at least a mile per gallon better than my best on my Piaggio BV250.

Harley's have fuel mileage computers? Lol
