Just got my Rebel 300 last week. My god, I love it!
When passing on the highway, for more part, I've heard that it's better to downshift from 6th to 5th gear for more power. My question is, what is the max speed that I can safely downshift at? I'm scared to drop to 5th at anything higher than 55mph in fear of causing a skid because of being in the wrong gear. For example, would it be safe to drop from 6th to 5th at 65mph to allow for more power? The 300 definitely needs the extra at those speeds 🙂
