RPM's, MPH & Gears

Getting use the Scrambler engine as I'm new to this type of engine. What gear do you typically use to cruise at a particular speed. As in if you are going in a 30mph zone what gear would you be in (3rd?) and a 40mph zone etc.?

Reason for asking is that the engine seems to like higher revs and I'm wary of lugging it. Is the bike happy to cruise along at 30mph in say 4th gear, or do you try and keep at 4k rpm's if cruising at a low-speed limit. Hope that makes sense... :|

Does anybody have any solutions for how to deal with the ridiculously-hot exhaust? I've been riding in near-snowy conditions and it's still so hot that I'd be afraid to have a passenger or luggage on the exhaust side of the bike.
