Fuel mileage

Finally getting some seat time on this bike. One thing I have noticed is that its a pig on gas. Average is about 28mpg over the past 4 tankfuls. at 130 miles i have fumes left. This is driving country roads. mix of slow and fast. My reference is my old Honda V65 which has the same HP and about 75lbs lighter. That gets in the high 30's with the same driving style.

Bike has Tab slip on w/ baffles and a Tab computer. All else stock.
Not so happy with the computer since motor not so smooth, especially around the 3K mark. Idles fine and accelerates just fine.
They had the settings as if it didn't have baffles. I changed it to the baffle setting.not much different.

So what are others seeing? Anyone else with this setup can comment?
