My buddy, who bought a used '07 1250 and toured around after graduating law school, routinely got around 215 miles to a tank with a comfortable margin. By then the rider is in need of a butt break anyway.

These bikes are pretty cheap to buy used. I think he paid about $4,000. Rode it for 6,000 miles and sold it after the tour was done for about the same. Gotta love fully depreciated motorcycles

My Buell only gets 130 miles before the low fuel light comes on. After that, I don't feel comfortable going further than 30 miles before refueling. After 160 miles, I am sooo ready for a break.
