RPM of diminished return in each gear on your bike?
I'm looking to get into a newer bike with more displacement, maybe a v-twin, maybe and inline, but definately 900cc++. I can't ask which is better because its all subjective... but this quetion would actually help with my wants. My 600 is very forgiving when it comes to full throttle in every gear, except 1st where a hard roll-on lifts the front at 9000 rpm on smooth flat ground (2nd through 6th can be flogged at will). Stunt bikes aside, what is your bike, and at what RPM's in which gears do you find you have to slide off the throttle to keep the front end down on a roll-on(no blipping to wheelie, we can all do that!). I've ridden other peoples twins and inlines but not hard enough as I would ride it if it were mine, so clue me in to the limits you've found and help me figure out what to go with.
