Well on the road shifting at 6000 is perfect. There is no need to go super high revs if your not planning on going fast. Also try to cruise above 3000 though, because under that it will start to lug and that is harmful. But you are going to have to get comfortable with going into the high rpm range. On the highway you will be at a minimum of ~6500. This bike does get very viby above 6000 and its something you'll have to accept.
Glad that you have started riding and on such a good starter bike!
