That's what I actually do. As soon as the road opens up and I see the Pacific Ocean to the right, I slow down to enjoy the breeze and the scenery. And it becomes that much more enjoyable if I see a US Navy ship relatively close to the shore and LCACs just cruising towards the ship. Ahhhh!

Exactly it was a 2 lane road and the truck was tailgating me for some time... I would have prefered to speed up out of his way than to let him pass especially because I knew corners were ahead.

I really do think people in cars see our little bikes as big bikes that can pass with ease but when it takes a few seconds to pass compared to a second or 2 like other big bikes I think some cars get confused...and tailgate.. Like I said I was riding with big bikes and they were passing with ease, so to have a bike in back struggle passing its somewhat dangerous.

This is what I usually do. I usually make it like 6 though and then see if I can catch back up. Fun game.

Or a slow ride works too, enjoy the scenery a little bit.

Next time just relax, I assure you that the road will be there the next day if you really were intent on tearing it up.

Next time downshift and use the higher RPM's to pass people. But get a bigger bike if all your worried about is passing people. Who rides higher than 85 anyway?

Very true, it has all that we need in fifth gear..10500rpm mine reaching 150kmh(93mph). With vortex ignition stand alone Ecu I can reach 12200rpm free revving and in reality approximately 11500rpm. 160kmh(99.4mph) it surely does in fifth gear. Most piggy back Feul controller not capable to eliminate stock ecu rev cut at 10500rpm and there you stuck at 170kmh or less by your weight.

Mine reaching 180kmh with vortex ecu but it only make easy cruising 160kmh struggle to 180kmh. With stock exhaust you can smell the heat even themperature indicator normal 3 bars. With full system yoshimura I need ear plug if riding on highway.

But as per stock it does a very good job for my daily highway traveling, I still can stick to fast lane in 3 lane highway. The only trouble is speeding ticket as Malaysian highways limit is 110kmh. Almost every day 1 hour travelling home -office - home I place my self among 600cc kawasaki er6n which is very common bike in malaysia nowaday. The er6n cruising and manageble at 140kmh and so do my cbr250r tailing them on freeway.
