Redline and gear speeds.

I know this topic has been tossed around before but no one has really answered yet...

On flat ground, what's the max speed for each gear? I know you shift when it feels right and that's been working for me and millions of other riders for a LONG time... I'm just curious if anyone has a link they could post that has the exact info in black and white, or even tell me what speeds do you normally up-shift at? I have an 04 volusia 800. Thanks in advance.

Lets be honest guys... If we wanted a bike that would do 150+ mph we would've never even considered a cruiser of any type to begin with. Not saying there's not cruisers that will do it... But I like to ride just to ride. Not to see how many colors I can make blur together at once. Even with my 800 it has plenty of "get up and go" when I need it but I personally don't have a reason to cruise in triple digits...
