  • New here, but...

    ...not new to bikes. I have rode for quite a while. My previous ride was a 2004 V Star 1100 custom. And now I am the owner of a 2001 Road Star 1600.

    I have rode the bike a bit, it is still pretty cold here in Toronto,

    Still cold in St Catharines as well, but I have been out a bit.
    2004 RS Silverado (finally got the radio working)

    Come on in, beers in the fridge.

                      34 to 50 miles per gallon depending on the tune and whether it's carbonated or fuel injected. I have a 2008 fuelie and I get between 38 and 44 miles per gallon depending on where and how I ride.

                        Both my '01 and '02 Carbonated Stars average very close to the same as your Fuelie .

                        My carbonated bikes do about the same with an occasional bump up to high 40's

                            from Richardson, TX. I'm getting between 30-33 mpg, but part of that is having to do 80 mph on the highway, just to keep from being run over, and sometimes, I have to go faster! Not a good way to get decent gas mileage!

                              It seams like the faster I ride the better the gas mileage. But it's also long stretches' without stops.
