I'd like to know what rpms 900 Monsters, & SSs (I assume they have the same gearing) turn @ 75 mph, in 6th gear, with stock gearing. I'm interested in all years. Also, I would be interested in the answer to the same question re. the ST4. Finally, can anyone recommend hard bags for the Monster? I know there was a "City" model, with standard hard bags, available in Europe, but I've never seen such a setup available in the U.S. Thanks to all of you in advance for your help!

Wow.......I can't answer your RPM's question, but I may be able to shed some light on your Monster City question.

This version was available for a few years in the US. It came with leather side bags, not hard cases. If you are interested in hard cases, take a look at Givi. I think that's the name of the company. I'm sure someone around here can verify the name or correct it if I'm wrong. Either way, I'm sure they would have something you're looking for.
