I feel like I cruise at anywhere from 65mph(actual) to 95mph(actual) and it feels identical.

Calsci medium screen, set to stock angle on a madstad, lowest setting (but highest bolt mounting point for madstad). Caribou 36l cases, and an occasional duffel bag strapped longitudinally.

When I'm doing around 70-75mph I get about 50mpg. I haven't done sustained rides of 90+ for obvious reasons.

I get my best MPG at 70-75mph with a barn door on the front, I must be heavy on the throttle around town.

Edit: I just did a mid-tank fillup, ~20 miles of cold weather commute and 62.3 miles of angry WOT backroads blasting (all sub 60 mph).

38.51 mpg. Yikes.
