I'm a brand new rider, took action two weeks ago, bought a bike the next week, going really slow taking my time to learn the handling and throttle control.
One question I have about the RPM's, where should I be keeping the rpm's at? Im basically sitting around 4.5 to 5.5. Is this correct?
I mean the bike redlines at 15.5 but after I hit 7 the engine is so loud i shift up. Its tough on the highway as well, i can't hear the engine well , so im basically just squezing the gas tank with my knees and feeling the vibration to tell when to shift, and looking at the tach of course.
BTW, I'm loving riding and im so hooked.
