Is this normal for a goldwing. I have been trying to track down some mileage problems with my goldwing.

I have not noticed anything like that with mine and I have an 01' with over 126K on it. Might suggest that you also post this on the tech board as the guys who watch that maybe able to help out as well.:thumbup:

Low gas mileage + excess soot out the tailpipe = engine is running rich. Might be a single cause; but most likely multiple causes.

You don't say what your mileage is...could be good for a trike. I get 30-32 @ 70-73mph per my GPS as the OEM odometer can be off several miles per hundred. If so, your mpg will not be accurate.

Depending on how you ride, less than 30mpg is not good.

Soot looks like a too rich mixture as mentioned earlier.
