It has a 6 gallon (+1 gallon reserve) fuel tank. Normal riding, you'll get around 35 mpg, so around 210 miles, or 245 including reserve. If you ride gently, you might get 40 mpg, or 240 miles (280 including reserve). Riding aggressively or at high speeds will reduce mileage, of course.

I just read this on another Goldwing forum:

After a 4500 mile trip out West I kept track of my mpg under varying conditions. Two up, bike fully loaded pulling trailer at 300 lbs.

75 + on highway: 25/27 mpg

65 / 70 on highway: 35/37 mpg

35 / 60 Mountains and curves at 6k to 10k elevation (with trailer): 42 mpg

(400 mile ride through Idaho and Montana)

35/60 Mountains and curves at 6k to 10k elevation (without trailer): 48.8 mpg

Brothers 1800 on same ride: 49.9
