Hey jaking, your MPH and RPM's align well (80 mph @ 6000 rpm). Shows me you were in 5th gear. If you were riding your brake it could suck up gas, but not so much as to give you only 29 mpg. I usually get about 50 mpg straight highway in the 70 - 90 mph range. What mileage do you get just around town?
Maybe you have a gas leak. That would certainly ruin your mileage. Or maybe your carbs need adjusting. Also, check your tire pressure.
By the way, nice that you bought an '05 750 with only 900 miles on it. Should be good as new. Wonder why the PO sold it. Could help you diagnose the problem. Good luck. Keep us posted...
