Riding at Speeds Above 35 mph
I have my bike, and I passed my MSF skills test. I have been riding in my neighborhood, but I have not been out on the open road yet. I know the wind noise and resistance will be more noticeable at higher speeds. So far, I have only gone 35 mph and felt the gentle breeze. What is it like to ride faster? What can I expect? How long did it take you to get used to going highway speeds? What should I watch out for? Does it take longer to downshift and stop from highway/interstate speeds? I welcome any thoughts and suggestions.
