NOT mine LOL your lucky bible, if you do some mods youll prolly be in the mid 30s to higher 30s depending on your weight and how you ride it and street or around town.

2001 XRL, Daves mods, Pro Circuit T4, UNI filter etc.
anywhere from 35-45 mpg commuting, off road, local stuff etc. to 50 mpg on long rides without a lot of stop and go.

LUCKY BASTARDS lol but ill bet most of you dont weigh alot prolly noone over 225 getting 45/50 mpg on the freeway at 75 mph. I did my daves mods and went 58/162 and ill see how she runs on the freeway when i get a chance to take her out, its too damn hot right now to take it back n forth to work. Looking at a sportbike tonight just have to decide which one i want to get HMMM tough decision LOL

Oh I gotta jump on this as it fits right into my line of thinking as of late however I had an awakening and came back to center point again. Thanks be to God!

I have never been a Harley Davidson fan, but they do look "normal" as a cruiser type of bike goes and I just thought I may buy one to take the place of the XR650L on the highway. So, I broke down and shopped .... for a Harley. Countless hours oline at thier website reading, looking deciding. Applied for the financing the whole bit and yesterday went shopping. Just knowing I would become - in addition - to my offroad fetish a "Wild Hog" Rider. :cheers: I found after being in a Harley Davidison dealer for over 2 hours, :thumbsup: not one bike to my liking, nothing really tickled my fancy, you know the feeling of - Oh man I just gotta have one of these! never happened. What I found were bulbous, heavy antiquated designs, with hard seats and poor suspension, rider positions were okay on some, and flat uncomfortable on others. About the only ones I liked were the 1200 Sportster and a Dyna Wide Glide, but the wide glide felt like a boat anchor, about as heavy as a dump truck full of wet gravel. Yours! for only 20K :thumbsup:

Bottom line, forget it. For the riding I do and what I want in a bike nothing beats my BIG RED, the awesome, XR650L. :busted:

I weigh in over 225 and do 70-75 mph on the freeway. I'm getting around 35-38 mpg. Which sucks compared to my stock mpg, also I haven't put the large gas tank on so I fill up everyday I ride to work (70 mile round trip).

I'm running Dave's mods with 58/159-60ish (i drilled my main but pin guages at .0628)
