    Kind of taking a survey here. My 2015SE has 2500 miles.
    Maybe I'm getting used to it but I notice it has become SLIGHTLY smoother.
    What rpms do you people notice the bike running smoothest at?
    Thanks!

    Yea. The "bucket of bolts sound diminishes a bit with more mileage. 4500 to 4800. 4800 is the sweet spot for me and a bit over the speed limit. 80 on the dial. 72 to 73 actual

    As far as most comfortable I would give my vote for 60 to 65 mph indicated . It is really too slow for interstate traveling but comfortable . So ,in the interstate case I try to keep it at about 75 mph indicated (real 70 to 71 mph on my bike) around 4500 rpm . For me , this is the best compromise between long distance comfort and fast enough not to be a hazard to the faster traffic. I did this on my Niagara Canada trip all the way home 650 miles , only stopping for gas . So if I can do it as they say ...
