Thanx , this is my first raider so I wasn't sure about the mileage, but from what I'm hearing it's about normal......
   So Like was eluded too by one of you guy's I did not buy the beast for it's fuel economy I bought if for it's ability to transcend time and space which it does in a monumental fashion.
      Now knowing what I know I will pay no attention to the mileage and simply enjoy the experience.
             Thanx all you are an oracle greatly appreciate your input and knowledge.

    just john what I do is I used one of the trip meters for the tank and one for the day's ride that way I can put in my cellphone how many gallons and how many miles it said and record the mpg. And just to keep track of my daily miles and my total days rides on vacation. You know just to know so I can see how it changes for fully loaded saddlebags and passenger bag, and after I put Freedom Performance sharp curve pipes on and maybe if I get Ivan's and a tuner. Just for my info.
