My wife and I took a 300 mile day trip this saturday. I am happy to say there was no misfortuneon this trip at all. I think when I took the wing up to 90 mph it blew all the gremlins off.I got to check my milage, the pump turned off this time. lol I got aprox 44 mpg, and I think that's not to bad for a 6 banger motor with 92000 miles on it. I was wondering is this typical, or should I be getting better milage on the hiway? The only problem I had is getting a bad case of numb butt. I was thinking of investing in a hartco seat but don't know if it makes a big enough difference to warant the cost. Is there anyone out there that has a hartco seat that can give me thier oppinion?

Might want to try a sheepskin for the discomfort. We just put 3500 miles on our 1500 in two weeks and comfort was not an issue.

That 90 mph was a short sprint - right? Don't see that kind of mileage with anything consistent with over 3000 rpm. Especially two up.

Unfortunately any motorcycle under by butt sees 90 too regularly. That's why I can't nail 40mpg. I'm happy with 38mpg on a Wing and my Trophy gets low to mid-30s.

:D

I have had two, one on my 1200 and now one on my 1500. I really like their seats and it made a huge difference for me.
