I drive an 07 ranger 4cylinder 2.3 liter, I usually get about 22.5 mpg, I'm driving 750 miles with a motorcycle in my bed, it weight 530 pounds, how much will it affect my gas mileage?

Depends on the terrain. If flatland, likely not much. If you do alot of hills, then you'll be working it harder and thus using more gas.
