Ned - I had the cruise set a couple of times today and pulled the clutch to see how much it revved before cutting off the cruise. Once I was going about 60 mph indicated and another time about 50 mph indicated. Both times the bike revved about +2000 rpm before cutting off the cruise. With the clutch pulled it revs up pretty fast so it only takes an instant to rev and cut off. I can certainly see if you are at freeway speeds it could rev past 8000. Have you set your CC a lower speed (maybe 45 mph) and pulled the clutch to see if it cuts off before getting too high for comfort?
I use my CC a lot and don't think I've ever had to rely on the over-rev to shut it down. Whether I'm on the freeway or back roads it's always just a quick touch of the brake to disengage the cruise. The only few times I've used the over-rev was when playing around with it to see how well that worked.
