42 most of the time. Not really effected by the amount of load on the bike. Strange, alone or 2 up pulling heavely loaded trailer there is very little differance.
Cold weather = 35 or less.
Cold here is anything below 60.
There is a dramatic change as the temp goes down.
Maybe I should move further south.
Should be 75 tomorrow so guess I can ride and should get about the 42.

ok, was thrown out in general! pgreen-there are a few aftermarket interface boards to correct the speedometer inaccuracy at around $100 price range. Try a search on speedometer. I am in NJ, was trying to determine if it is better to lug around 2000 rpm, or stay around 3000 rpm for better milage. Of course the 3000 rpm has faster response.

My 04 with 3600 miles on it does 40 - 42 Honda MPG per the speedo with mostly on the highway driving.

In town is slightly less

IF mile markers on the highways are close, I lose about 1 tenth of a mile per 4 miles on the odometer.
