Not much freeway riding. 75 mph gets about 47mpg.

I have the AF-XIED and a Leo Vince exhaust. At lower speeds, mileage went up . I have been running a 17 tooth sprocket on for the last 600 miles. Last tank was 57mpg.

Except for riding at high speed, nothing seems to change much.
My experience has been similar. Click the link in my sig for my fuelly page - about 57 mpg average if staying off the freeways.

I got 215 out of one tank going 75mph on hwy 99 heading South to Bakersfield, I spent a lot of time laying down and hiding behind the little windshield. I was only about 7 miles into the reserve but I wasn't going to climb the grade to Tehachapi with a fuel warning light on.

I have a bit of the freeway on my daily commute, which probably kills my mileage. But the bike hasn't been that spectacular on backroads either, although it ends up being a slightly better 50 mpg or so.
The bike uses a computer neural net for its engine management system, so it learns how to operate based on your throttle usage, the heavier you are on the gas the more it learns to anticipate you want power all the time, ergo your mileage will be low even when you are babying it around because it is ready to provide power when you want it, conversely if you tend to just putt around and are light on the throttle, it learns you don't want instant power and it adjusts for that, so you get better mileage.

At least that's how I understand it.

First time I've heard of this. Not saying it's not true, but do you have a link to the source of this information?

I get about 48mpg on my '14. I'm 280lbs though, and go 70mph on the highways. Light comes on around 150 miles. I know the instant mpg readout goes up quite a bit just dropping to 60mph, and even more at 55.

Adding a camel tank shortly to bump my range. Just under 1000 miles so far.

I wish I could remember where I heard this, I just spent an hour googling it and no luck. But this is highly proprietary information, so its not a great surprise that it isn't out there in the public sphere. Or maybe I just heard it wrong.
