2. I'd like to be able to commute with this bike going a true 55mph. Is 55mph for 20 minutes a shot too much for this bike? Does it get buzzy?

appreciate the help

The backrest is not "adjustable" - it's either upraised or down. Seat position, forward or back, is adjustable - but except for small women, everyone is going to want it all the way back.

What the previous poster said about speed is correct. If you need higher speed, look for a Honda Big Ruckus - and prepare to spend three times the money for a good used one.
