What range might I expect out of a tank of fuel on a v1 riding 2 up with luggage, I’m not a hard rider or trying to break any speed records.
Thanks.

I'm a bigger guy 300+lbs and heavy on the throttle. Riding city and some highway out here in SoCal with our crappy gas i usually fill up around 180 miles when the gas gauge starts blinking and I'll have about a gallon left in the tank...

Same here. 300+ lbs, lots of traffic, not easy on the throttle.

I typically go 166 miles and 4.33 gallons between fuel stops.

I "mostly" filled up the SE before our ride this past weekend(2up with the bags on). We had reached 184 miles while showing 1 bar on the gauge. Since I didn't know how the bike was on fuel, we stopped to "top off". To get the tank filled to the level I was at pre-ride, I pumped aprox 3.4 gallons. So I'm thinking we had another 1.5 - 2.00 gallons left in the tank. The bike/Rideology was showing a possible 45-50mpg.
This will take more riding (she's one week old!), but I'm thinking 250 miles out of the tank isn't out of the question. I'm hoping to get another couple hundred miles this next weekend to test out my theory.
