It seems to me I'm runnin at moderate RPMs. Not revvin to high at all, there's actually a speed point of about 32mph where the motor just purrs consistantly. When I'm rollin with traffic at 38mph + the bikes just cruisin and I'm at 3/4 throttle. I've opened it up all the way on long flat straights at high RPMs and I was rollin so fast I didn't feel safe on the thing. We use our local digital speed trap to clock ourselves and our speedos on the bikes. The last motorized bicycle Venice beach ride I was cruisin {just cruisin} up a hill side by side with a car checkin me out and I yelled at the guy "How fast am I goin"? and he said 33mph. Again, I was just cruisin at 3/4 throttle. I do have a cafe fairing on the front of my bike of which I'm sure cuts down the drag of my body against the wind.
