I just returned from a 2131 mile trip on my Scrambler.
I avoided the interstates but did ride numerous state highways. The Scrambler will cruise at 70 to 75 all day if that's what you need it to do.
In my opinion though it's much better in the 60's or less.

I love my Scrambler but if I was looking for a bike that was going to see most of it's time on the interstates there are much better options.
(My opinions. Others may and will vary!)
