After going to biketoberfest I have 100% concluded that I'm getting a VTX( isn't the right dear?)
I was wondering what you 1800 folks were pulling for gas milage?
My new bike will be for going back and forth to work ~11 miles each way, usually running 45-65mph. OH and for going to daytona twice a year:drunk:

Hmmm, I may need to start worrying. My 1800R has no engine mods, stock pipes and less than 2,000 miles. I have been getting about 34 in town. Took the bike for a 400 mile ride and ran at 80 to 85 mph a lot of the time, 87 octane gas, and only got about 30. I wonder if I should check into this or just wait for some more "break-in" time. Actually, with the smooth ride at 80 and all that power to pass with, I guess I won't worry about it too much! Still, ...
I'm running 40 but I'll try 42 and see what happens. Thanks
