Yeah, same for me. I do get 45 or so grinding down the freeway though. Mine's a 96. I ended up going up two teeth on the rear sprocket, but I don't see much difference, one way or the other, even though I use 6th more now.

PS: Fenton's is pretty new. Fuel injection? VTEC? Riding like a granny?

We have 'special' gas, and eschew gas from other states, unless they meet our exalted standards for emissions.

Default 62.5 mpg on the highest-mileage Victory

+After 185,000 miles, I get 62.5 mpg at a steady 60 mph on the Victory. The fuel economy is increasing with the miles...

Ride on.
