keep in mind, that if you push the tach beyond about 2800-3000 rpm, fuel mileage is going to fall thru the bottom of the bucket. especially on a trike because you are pushing a lot of air...

with my prior Tulsa Tall windscreen, about 33 mpg was the best it would do at 60-65.
if pulling the trailer it fell to 30 and below real quick when the tach gets over 3000
