I agree, I haven't seen any need to regear.. Power in 1-2-3 is just fine for almost every situation, and cruising in 4th or 5th on rural roads works. 6th is fine for freeway, might have to downshift if you want to get on it.You know, a few weeks ago I rode a Multistrada for the first time. Now this was in Florida where the roads are even less curvy than Texas but I didn't think it was over geared at all. To clarify, I'm not one who thinks one must cruise in top gear. I choose whatever gear suits the situation and have no problem running in 5th all day if that's what's called for.
Some of the tight twisties have me in 1st, but if I went shorter gears it'd be more power than I'd want in 1-2 for that stuff. Depends on what people ride, I guess.
