Greetings All, Have a quick question for my 09 CNavABS Wing. I used to have an 82 1100 - I have 8600 on the 09 and wondering what the "REAL" expected gas mileage should be? Many friends and other folks are addament that we should get low 40's all the time. So what do you all get on average?

I'm sure the 1800 guys will start weighing on your question. I wanted to just say welcome & since I have a 1500 I am not in your category however I get around the 40 mark unless I take the bike over 70 mph & than it drops off significantly.

Welcome to the forum from the Keystone state. I have 4,500 miles on my 09 GL1800 and have consistantly gotten over 40 mpg. The average is probably around 42 and the best I got was 49 on a leasure ride on back roads in the fall. The mileage does tend to drop at higher speeds (70+)

Hi and welcome Prof. I get an average of 48 mpg Cdn, works out to about 39 US. I do have a tendency to ride a bit 'spirited', and most of the guys I ride with are on Harleys so they are always pushing to exercise their "superiority" over my Jap bike LOL. I don't often get rammy and dust them off, but it does happen once in a while.:D
