Everyone's skill level is different, one persons 80% may be someone elses 120%. Just saying... the key is staing within your own limits, and the limits of the road and conditions and ride smooth. Me, I try to ride to my 80% when road and conditions allow, leaves a good bit of buffer. Im faster than most, slower than many. FWIW I dont drag my knee, havent in a long time. I dont see the need personally, especially on the Strom. I hang off on the Hawk, but keep my knee tucked a little.
You yourself have condoned breaking the posted speed limit. Knee down is not a good indicator of how fast someone is riding or how hard they are pushing.
Life is short, Enjoy the ride!
