Ok, total noob ?, I know...

HD's don't come with a tach yet everyone keeps refering to their RPM's etc. How do I know what the RPM's are at different speeds/gears etc. I just ride and shift when the bike sounds like it needs to shift. But at higher speeds (55+ mph) its hard to tell even with my loud a$$ pipes. I don't want to lug my engine, or over rev it.

So what, for example, are the RPM's when in 3rd gear going 50mph and 60 mph? 4th gear going 60mph and 70mph? 5th gear going 70mph and 80mph?

Thanks alot in advance...
