I went 70-75 mph with panniers with less than 30-40 lbs of stuff. It seems like I should be able to do this drive on one tank. At each fill up I traveled about 155 miles and put 4.8 gallons in = 32 MPG.

What should I check or tweak? I have no real mods other than the doohickey, tall windshield, and side cases (mermite cans).

Thanks for any advice or tips
Somebody has been in your carb without your knowledge. Sounds like typical results from a DynoJet kit installation. Time to pull the carb and record/document what you have for jets/needle etc.
