Riding like a loon - mid 30s, like a sane person - mid/hi 40s.

After 7,500 miles, I'm still getting 38-47 mph at 75-85 MPH (lower is sitting up, higher is tucked), anywhere between 43-49 at 50-65 MPH, and averaging 34-38 MPG when mostly around in the city (a whole lot of traffic lights around town).

Not too bad at all.

I hadn't really been paying attention but I think I'm getting around 50 mpg on my commute. I usually top off with a little over 2 gallons after my 110 round-trip ride. Just out of curiosity I might try that Fuelly site to keep track.

I've found the lower the rpm the better mileage. 4-5k is fine but the acceleration won't be there in the higher gears if you want it, but that doesn't matter when you're just cruising. Prob can't shift much lower than 4k.
