    Not doubting what you got Fred. Mixed riding is the great equalizer. Monitoring real time mpg on my F700, I’ve been on long, continuous wind free stretches showing 70 mpg. Downhill takes that number...

    To begin with, Fred’s BMW is an exception and your MT-10 is closer to typical average consumption.

    Is the owner even alive or maybe lying comatose in some hospital bed? Anything's possible.

    To own a forum and disappear for this long is highly unusual.
