You don't have our mileage concerns so I'd think anything that will give you a comfortable cruise with the ability to jump up to 60~65 sustained would be ok. On the 525 that'd be around 15/48.
Thanks for the info on gearing for these RFS bikes. I 'll grab a 15t front and see what that does, keeping the 50t rear.
The tank is a 15 liter, or 4 gallons. I'll bring a couple fuel bottles just in case, I have a few 1.5 liter bottles somewhere. Going up to the Wolfman open house on Saturday, see what they have for luggage.
I'll let you'all know how the shakedown ride sorts out.
