Sorry I'm late throwing in my nickles advice. BUT when I was riding with the guys from Phoenix the back way to Prescott on my V65 magna I would get around 41 miles to the gallon. Another old boy riding a newer honda V-4 told me I was stirring my transmission too often, he said "that old 1100 has tons of torque let it use it". After that I would get 50MPG consistently (solo). I've taken my T-bird 1700 up that same road using that advise only riding double, and I'm getting 53 mpg going up 47mpg coming down I-17 at 85-90mph. Stock 'Bird.
Those that say "OLD IS SLOW" have never ridden a V65 Magna!
