I have had the V for about 9 days now. I went for my second mountain ride yesterday. I stopped for gas on the way. I still had 1 segment on the fuel gage. It was not flashing, so I had not hit reserve yet. I had 212.6 miles on the trip meter and it took 4.07 gals to fill up. Thats 52.2 miles per gallon with a combination of 35% hwy and 65% pushing hard in the twisties. The more I ride it the more I love it! I'm guessing it will get a little better when I install the 16t front sprocket. I was worried that I would miss the in line 4s I have always ridden...all I can say is, I don't. I am waaaaaay faster and more smooth that I was on the big displacement bikes.
