    brake drag.
    correct gear for the speed...

    you do not have a clutch lever.. or need to shift..

    135-140 miles to reserve for typical mix of hooliganism and everyday riding, and 160-170 to reserve for continuous, open-secondary highway riding.

    My 1800N is consistent at around 135 when the light comes on. Have done 155 but pretty much on fumes. For all types of riding and terrain , FYI
