Dill you are correct... I don't use 6th till 75. I like to keep my engine revving around 3000rpm. At 3000rpm in 5th I am doing 70mph.

Thanks guys! I'm looking to pick up one in the near future, and I do a lot of interstate driving. 75-80 mph. Will a 5 speed be ok?

Too much vibration in 5th gear at 60-65 on long distances.

6-speed is nice to have.

left my Vegas 6 speed in 4th the other night coming home on a cold night...felt great in the upper rev range.
Wouldnt do it all the time but it was a buzz to really feel the bike straining at the leash
