My 2013 Dyna Super Glide shows about half full after 40-50 miles of riding. After 100 miles it shows almost emply, but the reserve gauge reads I have 60-80 miles left before empty. Just to be safe I'll stop to put gas in it, and I can only fit 2-3 gallons at most. I was only able to get a little over 500 miles on it so far this year as I bought it towards the end of fall. I will have to get a better feel for it once I can ride more come spring. I'd rather show I have less fuel than more than I actually do so it doesn't leave me stranded somewhere.
My truck has been doing the same thing. It's almost 10 years old now. When I bought it new the low fuel light would come on when it needed about 18-19 gallons to fill the 24 gallon tank. Now it come on when I can only squeeze about 16 gallons at most. It's all good though as my wife won't drive my truck with an empty tank. I know it's not empty but it keeps her from taking it.
