Today I did some interstate riding, doing my best to hold 80 mph. GPS shows about 77 for a lot of the trip. I had a side wind for 20 miles, and headwind for 60 miles.

My MPG was 37.1.

I dropped my main jet from 143 to 140 prior to this trip, but I haven't re-baselined with my daily commute.

Speed kills mpg!

EDIT: I have achieved a new low! 34.86 mpg over 61 miles! I spent most of those miles cruising at 90 mph with WOT runs up to 110 mph. That was followed up by 46 mpg for 130 miles at 70 mph.
