What is your average gas mileage?

Maybe we can do a poll for this question? I get about 65-70 mpg ... I read it can be as high as 88 mpg.

65-70 this year. Last year it was 75 like clockwork. I'm wide open or close to it a lot more this year, I figured that was why it's down.

Temperature below 60*F. 80+ mpg.

Temperature 70 to 100* F. 90+ mpg.

On a trip with average speed of 55 mph, 100+ mpg.

Although most of my driving is around the 55-65 mph range, thinking about changing sprockets to improve mpg's!
Seafoam on every tankful, but crappy air pressure on tires. Hoping for improvement on next tankful!

82.34 MPG last 527 miles. Last fill was 100 miles on 1.14 gallons. Now I fill the bike and get 5 gallons in a can, top if off every hundred miles or so and I will calculate it when the can is empty and the bike needs a refill. Hoping for just over 600 miles on 7 gallons total.

6 feet and just over 200 pounds here.

Idrove 135 miles before switching to reserve. On cold mornings I let it warm up for ten minutes. So when it gets warmer I bet that will help.
