depends on the situation. around town i keep the rpms high (8-10ish) just so cars hear me. if the roads are wet, then i keep it pretty low so the engine braking wont throw my rear around. usually just keep it around 5 for normal cruising.

Damn, am I shifting too low? When I'm just puttin around and cruisin in town I like to shift at around 4.25-4.5k. It doesn't bog or anything like that but everyone else seems to shift higher?

Around town, probably 5. If Im in a more open area I normally shift around 8. The only time mine goes above 10grand is when Im taking off and actually go to redline.

i always used to shift around 4, but to me its a lot smoother if i'm up around 5.5 or 6 instead...
