Hey all. I'm new to riding and a 1st time thumper. I think it will be a great way to spend time with my son when he is a little older (trail riding). However, at the moment my DR 350 could probably be running a little better. I've heard the DR 350 gets between 70-80 mpg for commuting. Is this true or a bunch of bull? My bike is currently getting 55 mpg. I'm new to riding so I don't have much to compare to. I fully intend on learnig how to fine tune this bike myself. Like most first ventures I expect the learning curve to be great and the mistakes plentiful. At the moment my only resources aside from paying someone else to do everything is the web.
