What rpm range do you stay in at any speed you are riding. Obviously this doesn't apply to high speeds, but lets say between 30 and 60 mph.
I agree. A tach is a nice gadget but you certainly don't need it to tell you when to shift. I really have no idea what the slow cruising engine speed is but I can safely say somewhere between 2000 and 4000 rpm's.I don't watch the tach...for shifting or cruising. From days when a tach was not supplied, you learned to "feel" the bike and what it's comfort zone was.
Same here. I'm getting into the habit of wearing earplugs on highway trips so I watch the tach as much as the speedometer. The sound is different with earplugs and for some reason so is the feel.Mine spends most of its time between 2,000 and 3000. On the highway. 3500-3600.
