Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Dismal!! When you push it up to about 80 mph it drops to about 30 mpg while fully loaded. Hit reserve at about 100 miles and about 20 on reserve so it gets pretty touchy out there, especially since they have closed some gas stations.  I bought two hard plastic 1 gallon gas containers and carried them with me, though that makes me a little queasy.  Truth is that anything that gets through the bags and chews through the hard plastic will already have caused a pretty big problem.

My next bike will have at least a 6 gal tank.
