I was reading a post a minute ago about the shifting of an elctraglide. I have an Ultra 07 and I have always shifted about 3000 rpms. Bike seems to love around 2200-2400. That is why I hate 50 mph. At 50 you are right on the edge 48 you lugg 52 your a little high. Cagers seem to know this for every evening on my way home I seem to get behind one that loves to go between 45 and 55. My left hand gets sore after awhile. hahaha On the shifting thing it seems to me that I never hit 6th gear unless I am going to stay around 70 mph or higher. That is my soapbox for the day. Have a great one!!
