Your drop in top speed and mpg is quite large. My riding friend has a GIVI and he did not experience that large of a drop in mpg. He does not ride over 85mph, so I do not know about the top speed. Do you ride at high speeds a lot?

After 440 miles in the cold, I am going to get a GIVI. I am 5' 11" with a inseam of 30". I will put the stock w/s back on in the spring to see if it pushes the wind and bugs high enough to be useful. A friend let me use a pair of hand guards yesterday for my ride back home. They kept my hands from getting cold, but seemed to increase the wind noise.

Hi Roy, The speed I posted was right after the 800 mile service and the day was kind of windy. I have not topped it out since. I now have 3500 miles on the clock, probably this spring I will see if there is any change, but the fuel mileage is consistent at 65 mpg.
After two tanks, I am getting in the low 70's. But it is do to the low RPMs I am riding for the break in period. I am going to put on a GIVI soon so I will not be able to make a good comparison of with or without the GIVI. 65 mpg sounds good enough for me.
