Final drive Q...

The two airheads I have (R60/5 in parts, and R90/6 "dirtbike" being restored) both came with 37/11 final drives. Am I right in thinking this ratio is not ideal for highway miles (ie, dualsport) on the R90/6 (which is actually 1000cc)?

What ratio drive should I look for for all-round riding (ride the highway to the trails, and then ride on the trails)? I can always keep one of these for a genuine offroad trip.

And...anybody want to trade me a higher ratio drive for one of these low ones?
1974 R90/6 motor w/1050 kit; twin plugged; installed in...1970 R60/5 frame; RM125 front end; KZ1000 Police Tank.
