Default Re: 15 mile round trip too much for new build?

Ok, just got back from my cruise.. Aside from me pedaling and separating the wires once, the motor performed excellent!! I let the bike reach top speed about 5-6 times on the open road to town.. It seemed to run smoother on the way back, with even acceleration and sustained pull from the motor without bogging down.. I'd guess that I cruised it about an average of 15-20 mph and topping out at 25-28 mph... Over all I'm pleased with it's performance, but throttle response still seems a bit slow with some bogging during re-acceleration.. Any tips or adjustment suggestions appreciated.. Also, I moved the float pin in the carb to the last setting on the c-clip before the trip-- after which the bike was able to idle without me giving it gas...
