People have always attributed good mileage to bikes, and I have always wondered if it is a false generalization, or if my experience was actually unique.
I was getting roughly 50mpg on the Harley

It was an 07 Night Train with the big motor in it and some work done to it.

I had a hard time not pinning it all the time so the mileage could've been better....

Word. My virago was the 535 cc so maybe having half the motor size has something to do with it (even tho that logic doesnt follow with cars...).

Given the size I had to wind her up pretty hard to do highway speeds. Rode it from Santa Barbara to Chigago by myself when I was 20, good times. Made it through the rockies to find I burned every drop of oil climbing them (it was a brand new bike with no problems prior or after this)!

i'd apologize and offer the thread back after jacking it, but i think our bike talk has only helped this POS excuse for a thread

Anyone with any recon of the Vail resorts? It's snowing along i70 now, and some resorts (Vail, Beaver Creek) are predicted to get between 2-8" by the end of the night.

Anyone been to Beaver Creek yet this season, specifically recently? Saw some reports that during those wind storms on NYE, a lot of shit was messed up. I'd figure they have cleaned everything up by now, so anyone know?

I'm heading up tomorrow morning and need to make a decision of which resort to go to...


BTW - in regards to the motorcycle talk, Night Trains are the shit. I've recently been on a moto kick again, thinking I might get one this summer. I had a Suzuki GSX-R 750 for about 4-5 years during/after college, but sold it about 4 years ago now. Been looking at these Buell XB12's now a days... some of them are pretty damn sick.

I was there Tuesday morning. Snow really sucks at the lower elevations at Beaver.
