What is your MPG

Afternoon all,

I just returned from a 4600 mile round trip from KC to Fresno CA.

I believed I averaged from 38 all the way up to 46 mpg.

I am new to the this bike and Harley in general. is this typical?

Just so that its clear, I am not complaining.

Average over the last 4000ish miles is 38 point something according to the trip meter on my Power Vision, who's accuracy is usually pretty close to manual calcs.

Mind you this is 99% 2-up and neither of us are fitness nuts.

I can get 42-44 wandering around at 55mph, or 35 if I run 75+mph.

My normal riding I average 38 and I'm not to easy on the throttle. We did a 577 mile day trip this weekend to Savannah GA and I was getting 42.5 running two up and around 60mph. It did drop down some when we ran on the interstate. 13 fltrx with a stage 1 and TTS tune.

2013 FLTRX, stage 1 w/vance and hine power duals and rinehart slipons, TTS mastertune and some other odds and ins. Long ways to go

Well, I never asked about this sh*t when I was buying a tuner and cams and headers and such.

Don't fail us now, oh blessed mother of acceleration...
