34 MPG when I first bought the bike riding at 75 indicated. The bike had apparently sat in a barn for about 5 years and the air filter was so kegged in dust that it was killing the fuel mileage. Now, I typically run at 40-42 at 75 indicated and 53-55 at leisurely rides.

42 Mpg... twice. Once, about a year ago and I think that was due to interstate speeds (70+) and again today that I think was due to my large Givi screen plus I carry a lot of "junk" around with me, just in case. Normally though, I'm in the 44-45-46 area.

I once got 42 running at 80 MPH in the Arizona high country on I40.
Normally i get about 48 to 52 depending on speed. I have the large clearview windshield
and hard side-bags that cause some drag.
