Whatís your favorite freeway/highway cruising speed?

For me itís 75mph. The Rebel just hums for hours on end. How about you?

Okay. For me itís somewhere around 55 to 60. I have had it up to 75 but without a windscreen I find myself having to pull myself forward.

I rarely have the opportunity to go 75, as there's only 1 interstate here where the limit is 70 (i basically only drive 5mph over), most of them are 55, with 1 at 60, and 1 at 65. so id say 60-65 works great for me. the handful of times ive gone 75 it doesn't feel all that comfortable to me even with the windscreen. I mean the bike is doing it's job great its just my perception of that speed/wind noise etc..

70 - 75 is cruisin' for me!

While I don't have any other motorcycle to compare it to (this is my first), I feel like it's pretty **** smooth, even on California freeways.

70 is the sweet spot. Though I inadvertently find myself drifting up to 80 if there's enough open space.
