Question Seriously, what's your mileage?

Just curious about what kind of gas mileage other Goldwings are getting.

I always use premium fuel in my '08 and with 3700 miles on it so far, I'm getting an average 42 mpg when I ride with friends (typically 70-80 mph with 95% on open highways) and if I take backroads and drive conservatively (55-65 mph), I can average 46-47 mpg.

Personally, I'm very pleased with my mileage since the official Honda website specs for the 2010 Goldwing is only 36 mpg.

2000 GL1500SE, can average anywhere between 35 and 45 depending on the riding. Start getting the 15's around 70mph and they use start sucking gas a little harder, I also pull a trailer. Lots of variables in the mileage calculation.

I average about 40, but I tend to ride her hard. BTW, IMHO you're just wasting your money putting premium in the tank...

40 unless I get over 70mph, then it gets pretty bad. Don't even try to figure it.

I will be surprised if the 20011 models don't have a 6th gear. It took Harley until 2006 to respond to the public cry, but that's typical of an American company. Come on " Hirohito " , wake up and drop the RPM's.
