Was that All Full RPM because I think you could go even farther at about 35-37 MPH? (Easy Cruising)

I pushed it a couple weeks ago. I'll have to post the trip. It was good but my Yamaha friend who does have a bigger tank went threw half a tank for my whole. Next time out we will do a before and after filling to compare.

I went out the saturday before. I used http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/ to record the approximate millage of my day of playing. So I did about 38 miles of playing and used 3.75 gallons.
The RXT did about 8 gallons.

I rode for 4 hours Saturday mostly 40mph, on occasion 50mph, non stop a couple of times sport mode, went through half a tank? I thought it was great... 4 gallons was pretty good am I calculating something wrong?

I always check Engine hours at start of day (So Lunch is not figured?) and at 35-40 MPH usually go 3 hours before any Low fuel warning which still leaves you about 2 Gallons?
My average day this summer costs me 6 Gallons or $22.
The RXT-X was twice that with only a couple high speed runs of 20-30 Seconds.
