Voyager 1700: What RPM to you cruise around town at?
I'm wondering what RPMs other Voyager owners generally cruise around town at - specifically in 2nd or 3rd gear, maybe 4th.
Previously I had been upshifting at 2400 or 2500 RPM. So I basically never rode above that. But as this riding season begins, I've been cruising at around 2800 RPMs, not upshifting till about 3000 RPMs. And I feel like I have a little more control.
What is your preference? What RPMs do you cruise at when you're not on the highway?
Thanks for the input.
