Probably both. I was confident I'd get the mileage out of VRap, judgng by previous trips out. This route threw up a totally different MPG because of the type of roads that I hadn't ridden on my adventure........draining it dry rather quick!

Lesson learnt, don't presume yer bike will get you there like it usually does....go on its worse case scenario, cause then you won't be waiting for YC to bring that jerry can, fill up when theres opportunity(look for me disappearing into a station).

OK, Daytona can do 165 miles before the light comes on and the XT can do about 130 before hitting reserve, both on motorway runs. I've seen that drop to 130 miles on the Daytona and 100 miles on the XT.

100-110 before light, but that's riding alone & a lot faster than will be done on the AR no doubt.

100 till the warning light, then I've only ever been brave enough to nurse another 20 miles or so on top of that. Anything over 100 miles between fuel stops makes me twitchy...

Good good... from what I'm seeing, I've still got a bit of room to play with then when I'm adjusting the route. Currently, the only scheduled fuel stop is 90 miles from the start although the first section may need further adjustment - I hadn't found a road that Google Street View hadn't been down until I made my latest revision...
