I was wondering at which speeds (and RPMS in last gear) the ride gets
shaky, and how smooth it is at 70mph (comparison to other singles is
welcome). I'm guessing it's fine up to around 4000 rpm for cruising?
100mph is the limit. 70mph is a good cruising speed but it will cruise a bit faster, up to 80 but not much more.

Have a look at http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ht=alps+london
to see how it goes when loaded.

The speeds quoted are real (GPS) - the speedo is way out. I cant remember the speed/RPM ratio and have recently converted to a 14T front sprocket so I cannot really quote RPMs.
