About the only time I might ride under 4000 RPM would be in a school zone. Out on the road, I usually shift at around 7000-7500 RPM, though I usually short shift from first to second, because first is SO low. The Vulcan 750 does, IMO, have a sweet spot right at 60mph and 4000 RPM in 5th gear. I sometimes ride there if I am not in a hurry, just out for a cruise. It's very relaxing, it burns a lot less gas than going faster, and therefore gives you more fun for your money, without having to go as far from home. Jerry.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
