I mostly use my singe carb 750 for fairly high speed (80 - 85mph) cruising for hours on end in France with occasional 100mph+ overtakes. Not exactly 'barely mid range speed or into town stuff. I find it performs excellently and gives great fuel economy too. But if anyone chooses to disbelieve, its no skin off my nose.

If anything other than a blank space is visible here, something's wrong.
