I looked it up, never would have thought it. Honda recommends this.

1st to 2nd 12 mph (20kph)
2nd to 3rd 19mph (30kph)
3rd to 4th 25mph (40kph)
4th to OD 31mph (50kph)

Sometimes I run mine down to 30mph in 5th but that is just easing along on flat ground. It will do it easy enough but I don't like to lug an engine like that.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
