Bought it as a commuter to replace a 2001 Rebel. Denver area is a great place to ride a bike. I ended up here looking for info re changing the stock gearing. 9000 RPM's at 75mph! On a slightly different note, the owner's manual says don't exceed 4000 rpm's for something like 500miles!? In 6th gear, that's 33 mph. The engine is not even smooth under 4000 rpms. I am going to search for practical break-in procedures next.
