What kind of gas mileage should I anticipate getting riding my 2007 Queen on mostly country roads, no hills, with just a bit of stop and go through a few citified areas? I rarely go much over 55 mph.

Lil,
A riding buddy of mine has a Road King and rides a bit faster than that and gets about 42 mpg on roads like that. On the highway he has gotten 46 mpg.

So he's doing just about as good as a Toyota Prius.:)

Very green indeed. Let some others with real ride time in the saddle chime in though. My info is second hand.

Thanks gentlemen.
Does anyone ever get over 50?
Yep, 50-56 but only highway and I guess it depends on how I'm riding on that tank :rolleyes:-don't lol but wind direction has alot to do with it. Otherwise 40-44 again depending on riding mood. 06 RKC w/RH true duals, high flow filter and a re-map

Oh, I get the wind impact. I wonder if there is a calculation to determine RPMs at certain speeds in relation to wind velocity and direction. If not, there ought to be.:)

He may have taken the "Zombie Thread Master" title away from XL1200R

Premium is $2.29 in Houston. I quit counting. The OP sold his scoot and bought a Chevy Astro Van.
