Gas mileage! What should I be seeing? I do a lot of running around the city type riding with a few longer rides a week thrown in and I have to switch to reserve usually just over 100 miles and I seem to get about 33-35 mpg (reserve is needed after roughly 3 gallons). Bike runs great, no problems or anything funny going on, but I hear of people getting higher mpg. And I know riding habits factor in as well. I am a little heavy handed and use downshifting to slow down so I have the revs up a bit I guess. So is this typical or am I getting less mileage than I should?
