Anybody else seeing similar? I don't think that's the cause of the guy you are responding to but it got me to remembering what I used to get mpg-wise.

75 & 68 mpg? Are you standing next to the bike and pushing it? Maybe pulling it behind a bicycle? Keep in mind that since the speedometer reads 10% high, so does your odometer.

The switch to summer gas blends will beat up your mileage, as well as running the crap California gas.
