??? What's the ideal rpm (so as to select the best gear) when crusing for the best milage and to be in a position for quick acceleration when trouble ensues?

I tend to curise around town in the 4000 to 4500 range. My bike with my weight (6'4" @ 230lbs) seems to start pulling pretty good around 4200. That's already saved me a couple of times. Just a personal preference.

hrm somehow i tend to be around 3500 rpm in 3rd or 4th gear alot. With my PCIII hiccups this is irriating, but i've trying running around 4500-5500 in a lower gear.

After I opened up the airbox and pcIII i find the engine starts to wind nicely around 4000k in 3-4 gear once the hiccups clear.
