Have a spreadsheet tracking my gas mileage for the past 6 yrs.
I can pretty much forecast mileage from month to month. Good in summer, bad in winter.

Also have $ / gallon and cost per mile.. Cost / maintenance - per mile, cost of ownership per mile, depreciation, on and on... Gets pretty anal while raining around here.

Average 34 in winter - 36 - 38 in summer

No, not necessarily. I live in a rural area but ride around in a couple adjoining small towns. If I were on the highway or freeway more, my average miles per gal. goes up.
It goes back to 37 MPG on the super slab when I ride above 80-85.

Yes, this is probably 98% highway miles.

Alaska pre-trip maintenance

Getting ready for Alaska this Summer. Replaced the stem bearing to All Balls. I had the wobble at about 45MPH. When I finally got to the old bearings the lock washer tabs were not bent up into the the locking washing. Old bearings looked very good (18,000 miles). If you look close at picture number 4you can see the tab sticking straight out. Also installed 4 inch Scootworks risers. The job seemed much easier that what I have read. It may have helped that I took the stem with the old bearing to a shop to have the old bearing race remove and new bearing install.

That's an impressive log :thumbup: Just wondering, what do you mean by actual mileage? I know foreign ODO's are off, but by how much?

Actual Milage

The speedometer on VTX's are off about 8%. The speedometer show faster that your real/actual speed therefore you odometer shows more miles then when what you actually drive. I checked with with a GPS.
