$3.40 is probably way cheaper than gas will be next year, higher the gas price the more you save, your cost per mile will be higher than projected, but percentage wise it will go up slower than anything else you own. At $5 gas, $7500 gas useage, $9000 gas useage at $6 a gallon with the GL. CBR will use 800 gallon for same 60,000 miles so $4000 @ $5/ga, $4800 @ $6 gallon.

The gas savings pretty much covers purchase price, so you get a new bike and didn't cost anymore than riding the GL.
