With gas prices being what they are, and TA salaries being what they are I went out and got a bike to alleviate my fuel woes. It gets 75-80mpg and is an awfully comfortable ride for what it is. I have to give Yamaha props, they built and tuned this thing to get every once of juice out of the little engine. My old dirt bike with this same engine didn't feel this snappy. I will lose some of it when I swap a smaller rear sprocket in it to get more top end, but I drive ALL week on about 5-6 bucks of gas where it used to be 50-60.
