wr450 cruising speed

i cruised on the freeway for about 10 miles today.

I am ONE TOOTH smaller on the rear sprocket, and my bike was crusing at 75 with about 1/3 throttle.

my buddy on his CRFX450 said that his "comfortable" cruise speed was around 60 (stock gearing).

All i can say is...i would NOT want to travel any significant distances on the freeway with that bike. The noise and wind and vibration almost drove me nuts.

I remember doing some long highway miles on a KTM, The next day I surprised the wife with a HD Fat Boy.

Because she was with me on the KTM she completely understood.
