I've noticed I'm not very good at keeping my speed constant on the highway. I'm not sure if it's changing wind drag causing the varience or just a skill set that I need to develop.

The speedo always seems to be slightly slower then when I checked it moments earlier causing this feeling that I'm constantly needing to accelerate.

Has anyone else experienced this? Am I forming a bad habit and simply not keeping the throttle constant?

I think its easy to do on a scooter with automatic transmission...try a throttle rocker. I dont use it on my scooter but I really like it on my sport bike.

I notice that when I ride too, but it's because of the road/hills. An ever so slight incline will slow you down.
