I feel your pain. Topped off late yesterday afternoon and nearly ran out this morning. Should need gas again by lunchtime tomorrow. If I had only known about this before I bought this bike. :banghead:

have a 77 mile one way commute to the boss' office for the next couple of weeks. If I go slow and easy I only need to fill up when I get home, but where's the fun in that?
I usually end up having to stop to refuel the bike 20 or 30 miles from home.
This winter mileage is killing me:hidesbeh:

That was a good poke. It is way to cold to ride here in Colorado.
As it was intended! I really could care less how many MILES per gallon, because it is all about SMILES per gallon!

I must be getting better mileage. I haven't had to fill the tank in about 4 weeks!

In a couple of months we will be paying more than half that amount.
With nothing to sell to the world and all our prices increasing at 30 and 40% bounds,we will be in the same boat as you guys by the beginning of the summer.

Had to fill mine twice yesterday after the annual ride to the "Polar Bear Plunge" in Harrisburg for the local humane society and then off to enjoy the day here in PA.Its not often that we get a 50+ degree day here in Central PA on New Years Day......Andy

yea all the talk about how outdated the airheads are and how modern the v is when compared, all turns to shite when you compare fuel mileage.the bad mpg the vrods get will probably be the reason for their demise ..i put nearly twice as much in my v when filling compared to those rideing their airheads.even the big bores.

as long as the V continues to get double the MPG as my car, it's still a win win win for me

Even @ $5 a gallon and the dependability of my V-Rods,they are well worth the gas money for just cruising around with no particular place to go.I get 35 mpg out of the V's,24 in my truck and Theresa's car is capable of mid 30's if I'm not driving it.
My guess of the 2011 high rise in my cost of living is what brought our household to cut a lot of corners in the past month and regroup.Some things had to be sacrificed for medical and an attempt to buy a business.The V-Rods are still not a burden.I really enjoyed cruising the other day,and it looks like after tomorrow,I can use it for business at least 2 days of the week.:notworth:
