ok. This seems to be making sense. I bought it in June...mid-summer, and have been riding it since. Almost 9,000 miles on it right now. Planning on riding it through December, and then I might put it in storage for the month of January (starting to get somewhat cold here--27F on my ride in to work this morning). So I should see a slight increase in mileage as summer comes around next year? Shayne99, how are you getting 53 all the time? Does it make a difference if you put 87 octane in?
