No, 15/48 gives you 13mph/1000rpm. You can cruise at a true 60MPH at 4600 RPM which the R is pretty happy at. With your 11/52 at 60mph you are at 5360 RPM which is going to buzz. One of the other...

Your gearing of 14/52 probably gives you about 11.2 mph per 1000 rpm in top gear. So you can cruise all day at 4500 rpm (50mph) and go 73 mph at 6500 rpm where the horsepower starts to taper off....
