(Almost) Never. Don't think I've ever hit the rev limiter either. What's the point? I'm no stranger to 12K, but that's about where I'll shift. Spend lots of time in third gear between 8K and 12K RPMs in the twistier stuff. Never do high speed runs either. 100+ indicated is all the faster I need to go (only when passing).

All the time for me. There are a lot of good roads in western Wis. that you are in 2nd, 3rd and 4th gear run a run around 10,0000 all the way up to 15,000 RPM. In the twisties, I will keep the motor I the power-band.

YUP Wi has the alphabet roads and alot over by prescott. It seems they have redone the roads. Bigjimmerone do you ever visit mnsbr.com ?

Ever since I started getting pulled over it seems like all my favorite roads are always crawling with cops. I'm too freakin paranoid to hit 13k+ almost anywhere on the streets. I haven't gotten a ticket yet but I know if I'm up that high I'm already speeding in a big way... Just not worth the consequences to me any more. I think getting married took that out of me. On the track, now that's a different story.

I'm not 100% sure what speed I'm at when I'm in 3rd gear between 8-12k rpms, but I know that's more than likely faster than any of the speed limits around here. Maybe not, but sure seems like it.

Every day - but only in first gear. I redline in 1st every single day on my commute because part of it involves a highway with some red lights. I either get first in line or lane-split to the front and WOT off the line [:p]
