I ride in a boring manner on the street, so that helps. Whenever I start getting into the throttle some I start thinking about the lack of a cush drive and the fact that I'm on knobbies.
My gravel road manners probably offset any savings though. It's fun kicking the pig sideways on turns.
Anyone do the math on rpms at highway speed on stock gearing lately? I have a klr now, thinking about dropping the gearing back to 14-48 on the pig. Can't remember how buzzy it was, but I know I bought the 15 front for a reason. I wish this bike had another gear or something.
