I have a question about cruising RPM's say you are on your 650R and cruising through a long 35 mph zone what RPM's are you pushing. Or if you are on the highway cruising at 75mph what are you pushing. Do you try to keep it 4000 and higher and use lower gears or keep it down. This is assuming you are just at a cruising pace.

Not got a 650R but if you are in a built-up area 30/35mph use a middle gear to keep engine fairly relaxed but give you some flexibility for sudden acceleration/response if needed. iIf on faster roads at say 75mph as you suggest use the top two gears, just don't let the engine lug. if you're giving it Berries on the twisties then use the box as God intended ;)
