When my Daytona was bone stock, the worst I did was 100 km before the light went on on the highway at quite unreasonable speeds with disastrous aerodynamics due to LOTS of luggage (tank + saddle bags, sports bag on the rear seat and backpack).

Did around 65 km (bone stock again) after the light went on with better aerodynamics at a very sedate pace.

Most of the time, the light goes on between 180 and 210 km. The old TOR tune my dealer loaded seemed to only make the bike less responsive and more hungry, so I got the new TOR tune and it seems a lot better.

The slower you move, the more dangerous your bike is... I'll let you work out the conclusion from there

If you find wearing proper gear's too hot, you're just not fast enough !

With my 2010 STR I get about 110-miles (177km) to the light when I'm commuting. If I'm touring, I can get 140-170 miles (225-273km) till the light.

I've got the 09 on there with 44.6 mpg. I seem to forget about using it with the bike. My poor TDI gets an update on average once a week.

The furthest I have dared to ride, after the light came on, was about 45 kms.

BTW, remember, when the wee orange light comes on, it not only means you want to look for more fuel, but it is also a wheelie warning light!

regards,CrazyCam

I should have also said that those numbers were based on using E10, 91 octane fuel.

I'd expect a wee bit more from better, as in no ethanol, fuel.

Also, thrashing round Phillip Island race track almost halfs the distance.

mine went up from ~110 miles new to ~120 miles now around town when light comes on for my 2008 (with Arrow l/b)...was hoping for better.

no ethanol-free to be found around here in TX - mostly up to 10%.

I usually get between 170 and 190 k's before the light comes on when im purely commuting. Not that I ride aggressive, but I tend to keep the bike in a lower gear sometimes to aid in emergency stopping if necessary and simply because the bike sounds louder!

Someone said that the triumph map runs rich in the lower RPM range, so does that mean if you want to save some gas you should stick to 4-6k rpm instead of short shifting at 4k?

what riding technique should we use when the light comes on and there are no gas stations to be found.

With a full tank, I usually go about 110 miles before the light comes on. I commute in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, with plenty of lights and stop signs. I average around 35 mpg no matter how I ride. I usually ride the crap out of my ST...

You could probably set the computer to show current fuel economy when riding it and check?
The acceleration isn't very good when you need it below 4k unless the street is tuned a lot differently than the Daytona.

When commuting I generally sit 4-6k when cruising or general shifting in normal traffic.
