Most of the Wee's are off about 5mph at 75. IE indicated 75 is 70 on a GPS. At slower speeds and around town they won't be off more than 8% or 35 indicated will be around 33mph on a GPS. So to answer your question no I don't think you are running that s-l-o-w at a indicated 80mph don't count on it you will get a ticket maybe even at a indicated 75mph depending on the officer

I'm currently in the middle of my < 500 mile break in (has about 250 on the odometer after this mornings chilly little jaunt). the bike definitely wants to go faster than the 50-55 I'm holding her to. I'm trying to follow the break in procedures as best I can, but she sure's making it hard on me! looking forward to the first oil change and getting to open her up a bit. loving this bike!

IMHO you are safe at running it 70mph on the speedometer as long as you don't just hold it there mile after mile. Let it run a little and enjoy it is a frisky colt for sure :mrgreen:

I had the occasion to follow a friend from San Diego to Yuma Az for a sidecar rally. Keeping the rpm below 5500 gave me 54 mpg. I tried to do that coming home and averaged 51 on the way home.
It can be done but it is a bit boring. I just stay in the right lane and pass trucks slowly.
Cops never give you a glance when you are going slow. Had one CHP cruiser pass me over the double yellow in a corner. I was going to give chase and do a citizens arrest but thought better of it.

Obviously.

That's what Legal told me to say, too.

I did 75 mpg in fourth gear and got 35.
