On my Wing, I get about 36 mpg. That's way better than my compact car which gets, maybe, 25 mpg. But check this out, the new Mazda Miata ALSO gets 36 mpg. What the heck? (Or maybe I should say, "Isn't that cool?"
I was in my car today and tried to keep up with an ST1300 merging onto the highway. Ha-ha-ha! No chance. Of course the ST handles better in the twisties than the GL, but which is faster in a straight line--Gold Wing or ST1300?
