Is it just me or does my V-Rod want to be in 3rd. gear to up to around 60 mph?I feel that this bike is geared very high. It smoothes out in all gears if you shift at higher that "normal" rpm.Any comments guys?:(

what gear?

It looks like the v-rod likes to be shifted at a higher rpm. Anytime it is below 3k rpm, it has too much load. I have 8k miles and i shift between 4k and 5k rpms. But as we all know, it doesn't wake up till 6k. Had mine up to 8k in 5th at 130 and still pulling like block busters! You have to own one to know.
