    MPG's in DCT S mode

    I just ran a full (3 gal) tank of fuel in S mode and rode a little more aggressively than normal. Usually I get between 69.5 and 70.5 mpg, In S mode it came out to 61.6. I thought it was going to be in mid 50's the way the gauge was dropping. 61.6 hot rodding around ain't bad for hauling this 270 lb carcass.

    Yup, about the same as my experience in tracking MPGs S vs D mode.

    I have gotten about 64 mpg fairly consistenly in mostly S mode or in MT. The best mpg I have gotten so far (in about 800 miles use) is 69.3 mpg

    Just curious...are you getting that mileage with, or without the luggage on?

    Something I've read before is that side cases really cut gas mileage. I wonder if that's true with the NC700X.

    I have a Calsci tall windscreen and a 55 litre hepco becker top box no saddlebags. Have about 2300 miles on her. Also I live about 15 miles out of town so most of my miles are at 50-60 mph.

    CalSci windshield height

    That tall CalSci windshield you mentioned--how tall are you and was it the right height. I am just 6' and want to get one for my bike if it ever arrives.

    I am 5'11" with 30 inch inseem so I sit high on a bike. The tall works good for me, mild wind on helmet, very little noise. If you are long legged the mid will prolly work for you but if you get the tall you can cut an inch off at a time till you get it perfect. You will have trouble adding an inch at a time.

    Just entered a fill up for my car on fuelly.com and noticed a Vespa 150 that filled up and only achieved 52 and change mpg. I'd say we do very well!
