    RPM at 60 mph?

    I was cruising down the road today at 60 mph (58 mph on the TomTom) and wondered what the RPM was. It's a 1989 model with standard gears and tires. Math makes my brain squirm so I'm hoping somebody has already figured it out.

    I've tried, the man rides alone. Or he just doesn't like me. Smart man either way

    Dryden and Groton are a little far for me. I only ride country roads (Paved and Dirt) and almost never off road due to wobbly knees. I did manage to make it up to Hector for a cold one at the Two Goats today and the weather was perfect.

    Don't worry about RPM. The TW engine family can easily turn 10k+ but the TW is tuned quite mild and will run out of breath long before rpm becomes a problem.

    I hope you mean gas when you say that.
