I am a new rider and have a Honda CB400. Its a nice bike. Not a POS or a rocketship, somewhere in between. Having been a car driver for many years, I now have approximately double the revs to redline and 6 gears instead of 5. Now in a manual car, driving around normally, I tend to change gears around the 3 - 4000 rpm mark. On a bike what's the concensus of opinion about when to change. For example 50% to redline feels about right. I tend to like having the bike in a gear that will accelerate when needed. This means that for around town 60-80kph 5th & 6th gear won't get much of a workout. What are other rider's thoughts.
