Yea thanks for that but I understand that , I was just wondering what Honda advises about speeds for the different gears . Normally it's written in the handbook I just don't have the hand book . It was based on a conversation I had with another winger who was insisting that you should never go over 2500 rpm in any gear. So he gets into top gear as soon as possible and for the most part leaves it in overdrive or fourth gear and let's the engine just pull along at low speeds. Says the engine is well able for it so no need to keep changing gear all the time , as I do. maybe he is right but I seem to do the opposite and on some bends might be down in second with the rpm at about 3000.
