I've got an 800 intruder and i'm a big guy, about 250 pounds, and i get about 34 miles to the gallon around town and on campus, the speed limit being 20 miles an hour. Does this sound right? What should i expect on the highway at 60-65 mph (aka 100-110km/h)? I was hoping to get about 42 on the highway. This, of course, is US gallons. I got 85 miles on the last tank and filled up with 2.5 gallons of gas, which equals 34 miles to the gallon.

mpg for Intruder

I ride a 1999 Marauder and my sister-in-law rides a 1998 Intruder. We both normally get 150 miles to a tank of gas before we switch to reserve. We average about 45 to 50 mpg and a little more when running major highways on long trips. She is under 150 pounds so that could make a slight difference.
