Now you gone and done it. It's a bike more happy to be beat, not chug along at low rpm. So kinda depends on how you ride. If you think you should be in 5th gear at 35mph, you might find the bike fighting you. If you're okay with cruising down a low speed street in 2nd, it's fine.
I split traffic a lot, like it's required, and it's normally under 50mph but always in 1st or 2nd gear and at speeds under 15 I know how and when to use my clutch so I don't get the bucking you can experience at low rpm.
