The Second tank of expensive gas goes through "The King"

As you all know I am touring on a new used 2006 Road King. "The King" as I have nick named it. I have been able to ride it on and off a bit but the weather is not helping. So in the past days I did get to ride it 168 miles. This mornings fill up was 168 miles and 4.5 gallons. To complete the history I paid $3.68 per gallon for a total cost of $16.61. The bike now has 3890 miles total on it, which makes it still very new.

This shows that my 2006 Harley Davidson Road King is getting 168/4.503 = 37.3 MPG's.

My last fill up was on Wednesday morning 4-23-2008 the gas was $3.29 a gallon in Draper Utah, and I needed 4.3 gallons for 161 miles. Do the math 161/4.3 = 37.44 MPGs.

I like the looks of the comparison. I can live with 37+ Miles per gallon around the town.
Maybe I can expect to get 45-50 miles per gallon on my long road trips, or it may get better once the engine get broken in.

You an be sure that I will have more information to as this great summer of gas savings continue.
