I dont know if i can contribute anything useful to the motorcycle fuel economy challenge, i have only owned my ninja for a month or so. I am trying to get the gearing where it should be first before doing anything else. My priorities are more about keeping reasonable performance or as a much as about that as fuel efficiency. I think i have gone as far as its reasonable to go given my size and weight. It ismy hope that by moderating acceleration and driving speeds i can get into the 70 mpg range. Time will tell and with much cooler weather here already, my opportunities for breaking my best of 67 mpg so far will be few, at least until next spring.
