You pulled it with the 1200?

We need to get an accurate weight of the complete rig, and just you on the bike... when you're in the mood to figure it out, drop me a note, and I'll get you weighed... I got 'connections'. :thank_you:

I wanna know what I can expect out of my '84...

Pulled it with the 1500 - 25mpg at interstate speeds. I guess the 1500s are thirstier than the 1200s. Cruise control on the 1500 is very nice, though.

Yep 1500 is thirsty. More so with the valkyrie with 6 carbs.

Joe:

I pulled the teardrop with the 85 Gl1200 and got about 35 mpg on fairly flat 2 lane highways, staying around 60mph.

The Gl1500 mileage check run included 2 & 4 lane highways with about 50 miles on the interstates at 70+. It handled the trailer with no problems, but you definitely feel it behind you. Meeting semis on 2 lane roads with crosswinds is an experience, so I use the right hand side of the road when I meet one.

I'd thought about pulling it over to your place for an extended ride, but can't remember where you live in Indiana. :moped:
