that's about it... slow down, go easy with the right wrist...

I would bet you have a PowerCommander... try removing it... I would bet your gas mileage would improve.jagular said:There are lots of variables to consider. I have windscreen, Leatherlyke bags, aftermarket pipes, Lindby bar, aftermarket seats, so the bike itself is heavier than stock. I drive predominantly highway miles, so my mileage is very good, around 45 MPG sometimes 47 MPG.
So, how do I do it?
I lost weight myself (I'm down to 165 lbs.).
I don't go over 5 MPH of the posted speed limit.
I leave and stop gently.
I typically go into work (which is 46 miles away) on the highway and I go in late (around 9 AM) and go home late (around 6:30 PM) to avoid stop and start traffic.
Hope this helps.
Shoot I can pass you with my Harley :a13: LOLaverage 36 to 38 mpg. My riding consists mainly of a 44 mile roundtrip to work which is mainly hwy (65 to 70 mph) I go easy on the
throttle and let the massive torque do the work. My bike is somewhat modified, exhaust, intake, desmog. I also have a tall windscreen and bags, not sure what affect those would have on mileage and I'm no midget, 6'3 225.
