Motorcycles are known for getting great gas mileage, but the Honda Goldwing is a fairly heavy motorcycle. The Goldwing 1500 gets an estimated 32 miles per gallon of gas, which is not bad but somewhat low for a motorcycle. You can improve the fuel mileage of your Goldwing by being conscious of how you drive it and maintain it. A well-maintained, gently driven motorcycle will get better gas mileage and last longer than a poorly maintained bike.

Plan your trips so you can get the most out of your gasoline. Don't make unnecessary trips and try to cut down on the number of trips you make by combining errands or appointments.
Drive the Goldwing properly. Try to avoid rapid or frequent acceleration, as your bike will use more fuel changing speeds than it does maintaining a steady speed. Avoid aggressive braking and driving.
Avoid leaving your Goldwing at an idle. Idling reduces fuel mileage and produces emissions that can harm the environment. It takes less fuel to turn your motor off and on than it does to sit still with it running for five minutes, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists.
Keep the Goldwing 1500s tires correctly inflated. Low tire pressure will increase drag and force the engine to work harder to power the motorcycle.
Properly maintain your Goldwing's engine. Failure to correctly maintain your motor will lead to problems due to malfunction or neglect. Poorly running engines have to work harder to operate your bike and will consume more fuel than well-maintained motors.
