A lot depends on the rider's weight, so be sure to factor that in.

My 71 R60/5 with 30mm Delorto's gets an average of 37 mpg I'd say. Riding between 60 and 70 mph. I have gotten a best of 52 mpg riding 45 mph following a slow /2. Riding 2 up into the wind trying to go 75 mph results in 28 mpg.




My dad's airheads are two extremes. The R26 on the left has gotten a best of 70 mpg putting around on backroads. The R50/2 with the heavy Ural sidecar gets about 20 mpg. Both are happy at 50 mph and are ridden at WOT A LOT to keep up with traffic!!!!
