Took the Rig to visit the Youngest Sat. Got slightly over-served... spent nite. Hustle home dodging rain Yesterday..
2 lane all the way.. nothing over 60MPH. [The way we Like it] fuel economy stuck at like 28MPG!!!
****!!! Jayne's Car gets over 30!!! This Sidecar Pulls Hard I guess!!!
Just Ranting... wondering what other 111's are getting sans Hack???anyone?

I guess the weight and wind resistance add up.

And I find it hard to believe you got over served.😀

I'm just here for the beer.

depends alot on who's 111, and the fuel system? as I know you already know...
there are 2 versions of the 111 by S&S,,, 1 for touring bikes, the other for lighter bikes.. the touring 111 has an E carb, lower compression, and a smaller cam than the performance version... or there are the Harley engines?

Wouldn't the milage depend on a lot of factors?
Hills, road condition, weight carried, etc.?
Your correct. The added weight and wind resistance of the side car, plus Marty beating that anorexia, really takes a toll on mpg.

Put a Few more Miles on, and It may be Loosening up... Or, I quit putting "high-test" into it... reasoned the Electronics will "compensate" and... I firmly believe that the way the Pricks around here gain "octane" rating, is by adding more Alcohol... Certainly Not what I want!!!
All the way up to 29 now!!!! Sheeesh
Maybe gotta loose some of that Hibernation "fat"!!! LOL

Just a thought, have you put a tape on the rear wheels? To verify the toe is not way in or out.
Oh Yes.... It is setup about perfect... Hands free Perfect in Fact...
But, Maybe that ain't the Best???? I will Not Change it tho... Piss on the Mileage if it would handle badly!!

Betting that Hannigan car outweighs me... especially in my "Anorexic State"
Prolly has alot to do with it... and mis-aligned would add to the Drag... surely.

Hi - My 110's best with tail wind is 39 MPG. that's solo, no luggage, windshield, no faring. that's easy-riding. If you knuckle the throttle a little - your down around 33 - 30-ish!! But it's fun!:shout:

More than One MFG is Making Quality SideCars... and they are set Up very well Indeed.
I would Not be Caught Dead with No Trike [outgrew those at about 3YO.. and a Snowmobile with Wheels?????
Puh-Leeeease... Ridiculous..

See Below

Racepres' wife has an Indian w/sidecar. That's why the mileage sucks.

That and his chubby ass riding in it.
