My all time best is 75.9 mpg; pretty good considering I'm 6'5" and weigh 280.

I've become concerned over the lugging I've been doing to get that mpg. Most of my riding is on side streets, at 30-40 mph. The K&N air filter makes it lean on the primary, and detonation is deadly to these engines. I can be a little less intense on my hypermiling and still get 67-70 mpg. I believe a smaller, lighter rider would easily get another 10mpg.
