Default 44mpg on 2011 wee

I am only getting 44mpg. I used to get around 50, but the last 4 tanks have been a steady decline. Plugs are new, air filter has 6k. Valves just adjusted to middle of tolerance for intake and open end for exhaust valves. Also got new tires, and replaced chain and sprocket. 28k miles on odometer. Seems like I am getting the winter gas blues. I use regular unleaded.

How do you guys get such good consumption?

I have a 2009 DL1000 and I average 32.1MPG. Could it be because I do 100 miles per hour most of the time?
