my honda shadow vlx 600

well i had my bike for about 6 months now and was able to achieve about 65 mpg consistently. i decided i wanted a better sounding bike so i took off the 1st set of baffles in the pipes. nicer sound and now mpg is at 72.

Good gain. I understand these are pretty choked down motors. I had a Transalp with a similar motor and got 55 at 80 mph on California gas. What kind of riding do you do? Place your data into the garage.

Thats pretty good for a 600. I just got my first 80mpg tank on my Ninja 250. And I don't know how it got better I ride the same every week.
