Do you mean 1988? In 1981, they didn't have a 1500cc goldwing...

Comment: again, average speed is a huge factor in mpg. I've gotten as high as 71 mpg on this bike, keeping it at 55 mph. But it has gotten as low as 53 when heavy on the throttle (indicated 75-80). Figures shown above are overall average.
