I know some get better but I get about 35mpg in Houston traffic and 48-50 mpg on the highway on my stock 07 Wide Glide. Since our country is finally waking up and we are slowly moving towards more efficient cages, I think the tables will turn so to speak and bikes will be looked upon as gas hogs. My guess is this will be about ten years from now but maybe sooner. I just think it is kind of ironic how things change. Maybe motorcycle technology will keep pace with the cages without loosing the fun factor. I guess we just wait and see.
