High gear matters
Ok, guys, I've a question, especially to you long-range commuters and tourers:
I recetly took my bike to a 100km ride on the highway, opting to put it through its paces, and I noticed that when I reach 109-113 kmh, in 6th gear, I get to around 6000 rpm, and I get a distinct shaking in my left mirror, my handlebars, footpegs. The rest of the bike seems peechy keen, steers ok, buzzes loudly.)
My mechanic says I may have my wheels poorly balanced. Do any of you have any thoughts to affirm/contradict this diagnosis?
Also, To those of you riding two up: how high do you have to go rpm-wise to mantain competeable highway speed?
Thanks guys! All the best from Russia!
