When I can restrain myself from speeding I always try to get into 5th gear ASAP. For casual cruising I shift out every 5k but when racing I shift out at 11k - 12k since the powerband starts to drop after that.

Best rule I can think of is that when you break in a bike you shouldn't go over 6k for the first 1,000 miles.... So for casual riding just stick with that and you should be able to do 60 in 5th gear without going over 6k... its comes out to be something like 12mph per gear except for 1st. This also depends on the year as well and the CC's of the machine.
