I dont think you should ride looking at the speedo and thinking what gear am I in. Of course you have to dodge the cops if your not gonna look at the speedo but there is a reason you have a big bright tacho in the center of the console. Ride by your revs. If your cruising i find 3-4k is fine. If im riding in the city i keep it around 6k ( a bit of a burst can get you out of a lot of sticky situations ) if you going out for a hard run these machines will rev all day long so 7k would be a minimum unless on a big straight at high speed. You'll find after many miles and good familiarity with your bike it'll just start to feel right. Run your machine in right and don't bog your engine with low revs. :burnout
