Just checking with the rest of you on something. Not sure if this is just the nature of the bike but when I am pulling away or even just give some throttle between 3000 - 6000 rpm the bike just seems to vibrate and the engine seems like it's working hard and the exhaust gets throaty.

This normal?

I cruise around 5k. Was tearing it up with a Hayabusa rider today and was mostly around 6k and above, but I can't say I was "cruising."

For what it's worth.

Oh yeah, Hayabusas can't keep up in the curves. So sad... >:)

Soooo....is that the "normal" cruising range? Seems a bit high....even if the redline is 10.5. ? Is this what most of you cruise at?
I cruise at 6000. It leaves me sufficient rev range to get me clear of any trouble such as overtaking. Rule of thumb is to ride 30km faster than those around you such as car drivers. If traffic is at standstill the 30km is slow enough to be able to stop when cutting through.
Each rider enjoys their own pace where they are comfortable. Many folk are at the 4500 to 5500 rpm range.

it's longer wheel base offers more stability in the turn though. It just can't be thrown around too easy like a supersport
