We rode the slab for 60 miles in the morning because we were in a hurry... 75-80mph, no worries, sounded, felt great. I had dropped two teeth on the rear sprocket and up one on the front for longer legs. The Amsoil 20-50 makes the clutch a bit grabby, but the engine protection, it's a minor inconvenience.
