Default Optimal Tire Pressure for High Speed Riding

Greetings Motorbicyclists,

Quick question. Car tires have a pressure/max speed rating on the side of the tire, stating the limit of how fast you should drive with that tire on the highway.

Bike tires don't have such ratings, instead we go by the recommended inflation pressure for the tire (usually between 45 - 60 PSI). Give that, what would be the optimal tire pressure for a Cruiser motorbicycle at 30 mph assuming a rider weight of 200 lbs?

I'm asking in order to reduce the risk of a blowout while hauling ass :-)
