If you've got 45mph roads, you're okay. If these are 4-lane 45mph roads with flow of traffic around 50-55, then it's gonna be frustrating and you'd be better off with a 125/150 or more.

However, in the 35/40/45 streets around here, I keep up with traffic just fine on a 50 (Vento Zip R3i). In rush hour, even on 45mph roads, I'm typically passing traffic. Downtown, there's not a car that can keep up with me.

On the Super 9, I can harass cars and motorcycles up to 50-55mph.
Only an XR1200 owner knows why Cthulhu hangs its head out a car window.

Like I like. Yep.
