I run a 15 / 44 and that lets the bike top out at 98 mph right before the limiter (GPS indicated)
Droning along at 65 mph is 6300 RPM with this ratio, and it seems happy enough doing it.
Tight(er) back roads the bike lives between 6000 - 9000. Never into the limiter. It'll do that for 200 mi. a day.

Anyway, I didn't have any issue getting up to about 60 MPH before I had to turn around and head back, she ran wonderfully and sounded great! I just would rather get to that speed at a little lower RPM than I was. I know, I know, either I get it geared for speed and lose the low end, or I gear it for what it was made for and have to travel on the highway at less than traffic (which is fine). I'm just debating on which sprocket I should change... I'd rather not have a nice little collection of sprockets hanging around as I try to find a combination I like.
