I think you are right about the minimum speed but with the pace of traffic being what it is, I would be uncomfortable doing the minimum on the Interstates around here. :-\

One thing that kept me from buying the Iron or AVL was VInce's sage advice to NOT use either on the Interstates.  Although I'm not a fan of the freeway, I do like motoring out of Seattle eastward on I-90 to jumping off points to ride the backroads here and there and eventually back to town.  The Guzzi is overkill for that as it is content to go all day 70-80 mph in relative ease and comfort. 

The G-5 might well be my next bike.  Vince doesn't need to roll his eyes just yet (I've left him at the altar twice).   ::)

     And yet I still feel the love.
     Keep in mind I went through this with my first wife. Then she left me for another woman.
     Alas and alack. (sigh)
