yeah I have a friend that does the same, but what happens when a car is about to hit you and you have no power band to get out of the way, I like to be noticed and heard so no one hits me, but thats here in florida where most drivers are well above 60+

around my town usually 3rd or 4th gear, I see and hear some of them stupid squids that cruise around in the lower gears just so people will hear them and see them like their cool LOL..

An AGV helmet, joe rocket jacket, alpinestars boots and jeans. :lol:

Usually I keep it in the highest gear possible where the bike still feels it will accelerate if need be but also not to be stupid loud and ignorant.

whatever gear keeps me in the 3-4k rpms range.
without sounding to hiper and loud,but can be pegged easily with a twist of the throttle.
