I've done many 12 hour days on the interstate at 75+ and it caused no problems. As long as you don't exceed the redline (8500), you should be fine.

The 750 is a great two-up bike - especially with the backrest/rack and does have a very smooth motor. The later model Nighthawks came in 250 (up to 2008) and 750 (91-03).

For day to day commuting and such, I use a Nelson Rigg tank bag. I put it on the tank until I got the rear rack mounted. Now I just throw it on there.

I rode an 03 SV1000S that I was thinking about buying. Within ten minutes, my wrists and back were killing me. I now know that I can't own any bike with that forward of a riding position.
