You are being optimistic or you drive slower than mike and I. We got about 10mpg cross country.
It was based on a very small sampling - the drive home from PA. I drove pretty slow I guess - no more than 5 miles above the speed limit for the most part, to keep Donna happy

It's me Devin!

I had a few Ducs, but now I"m riding some Aprilias.
the name DaineseUSA is used on all of the motorcycle forums that I'm a part of.
Mostly work related, so customers have a point of reference regarding Dainese product.

However my "rover" addiction is now maturing quite well... I spend entirely too much time looking at Rover porn. I need help.

I hear ya. My Rover madness started with the '95 D90ST that I bought back in '96, but I was bitten by the street bike bug last year. Unfortunately, the Rover still takes as much time and money as ever and I've only made things worse with the Duc!

I'll have to look you up when I'm out in OC. I lived out there for about 13 years before moving to CO. I still travel back to our main office in Irvine about once a month and try to plan it so that I can spend the weekend to hang with my peeps.

Oh yeah, and just so I'm not completely off topic, I was getting about 11mpg with the 3.9 in the 110, but I've done as well as 16mpg with the 4.6. It doesn't have to work nearly as hard. The worst mileage I got was an average 10mpg with my '00 DII (33" tires, stock gears, and stock 4.0 motor).
