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.

Interesting reading. I have a different approach. My bike will, on average, require switching to reserve at 130 miles. I then figure I'd better find more fuel within 30 miles. FWIW
