we just got back from a nine day trip to the beautiful state of south dakota. we rode in all kinds of weather and the temps changed seemingly by the hour but on we went! I ride an 06 roadking police and ittook everything that I or mother nature could or did put it/us thru! averaged 41.8 miles to the gallon for the trip as a whole. no hiccups at all ! if it sounds like I am excited its because I am, this has been my longest roadtrip to date! cant wait to start planning the next one!
