  • High milage (record?? I challenge YOU)

    Went touring this weekend.

    (Excuse me for useing the wrong terms and stuff like that in this post...)


    Got a smashing 50.45 milage count.
    (140.06miles on 2,776gallons)
    (US gallons are used.)

    (For metric folk, that is 10.51 litre, 225,4 kilometers == 0,466 litre/10Kilometer )

    Beat that if you can.
    I challenge everyone at TLP.

    And, I did 466 miles (750 kilometers) at this rate.
    So, you have to do at least 220 miles to enter the competition.

    Ehe, no price but you knowled that it IS possible to get at nice milage out of the TL too.


    BTW - Yes, it was slightly booring. But I was on a tight budget on this tripp...
    Had a fixed set of cash. Beer or fuel?? Knockout viktory for the Beer...
    (literally...)

    EDIT ---
    Forgot to say that I had a GIVI tankbag loaded with Beer, and a backpack loaded with clothes and sleeping bag.
    Not weight tuning on the bike makeing this "record".
    Same engine config as when I did 180mph (290)

    Can do 180mph. Can have 50+ milage.

    Yupp, it HAS to be an YELLOW Tiller!!!

      Last weekend a buddy and I rode from Spokane, WA to Sandpoint, ID to watch a MTB race and I got 54.85mpg. That was only 175 or so miles. He was on a Honda Superhawk and only got around 45mpg.

          Uh. Forgot about the SoCal tank.

          But neither do I, I refuled after 140 miles..

          OK, Guess the 220 miles rule is out.

          Cant remember why I wanted it? Tired after the trip. Had precicely got home. and the first thing I did was open TLplanet.com.
          Had only 7h sleep over the weekend... (1+2+4h sleep...)
          But bathing while the sun sets rocks. And still on the beach when the sun started to rise again... jumped in the water again when the sun started to rise.
          Nice party!

                  Miles in one day ill challenge anyone. Fuel I dont pay attention, I stop every 100 for a quick break and go again. Last year my average mile per ride was around 720 miles a day. Got one day where I did over 900 in one day 5 hours in rain.

                  Longest trip which ive rode 4 times is 1200 in a single day.

                      For the past year I've been doing a trip from Orlando, FL to Tampa, FL every weekend. roughly 120 miles one way, All highway. If I'm not speeding like an idiot I get roughly 37.5 mpg on 3.2 gals of gas. That's at an RPM of 5500-6000 cruising at about 85-95mph. And I'm 2 up on the rear sproket. I doubt that's any good by any strech of the imagenation but this tread was a good excuse to figure that suff out . On a side note. I've put 20,000 miles on my bike in one years time. I bought my TLR used last year on August 14th with 8,046 miles on her. Right now the clock reads 27,894. By the end of this week it will have rolled over 28,000.

                          20.2km/l

                          Realistic tank range 324 km

                          My ex did that on my bike without trying, yep she rode it like a girl I'd hate to see what she could have got out of it if she tried to be conservative, I'm sure she'd give you a run for your money.

                            I've seen 58mpg, but then again, I have a 650. Maybe Steve can extrapolate (sp) that figure to a 1000cc motor

                              Okay, I've done 500-600 miles for 10 days straight and that F'ing hurts. I just can't imagine 1200 miles in a single day. The worst is the straight line riding because you start to fall asleep....

                              I did that on my trekk down to Las Vegas earlier this year and will never plan for 600 mile stretches again, unless it's all twisty stuff. It just plain sucks when you're loaded down with gear, tired, cold and *if you can imagine this* bored of riding in a straightline...

                              I think I got about 45-50mpg
