How does the WR450f handle prolonged high speed cruising?

The 6th gear would be very nice, and is what I wish the WR's had.
I do a lot of high speed work on my bike, it handles it alright.

I went up one in the front, and down 2 in the rear from stock and it's been fine. 1st is still low enough for most anything I encounter, and if it's not I use that as an indicator I need to be going faster I am plated, and ride to work Fridays (26 miles round trip).
I'd rather ride a real street bike on the street, but for quick jaunts and to tie trails together the WR is great for me.
