Sounds like you got it about right for cruising. No need to rev it sky high.

naw im on the street 98% of the time usually just shift it when it feels its time
i drive a stick in my element so its just a feel thing feel it in the throttle and the sound of the motor
on flat cruising probably shift like 6-9k downhill lower revs and uphilll higher

I usually shift around 5 or 6k as well, I think its pretty much what's comfortable for you. sometimes i like to slowly get it up higher just so i can remind myself how amazing my bike sounds lol

in the manual it explains what MPH you should change at. if im correct, from 1-2 around 12mph. 2-3 17mph 2-3 23mph 3-4 27mph 4-5 32 5-6 like 37mph... ofcourse under certain riding conditions i will be going faster. but check the manual, it has it in there.

Yeah shifting at 5mph increments is pretty ridiculous. Just because you can doesn't mean you should :)
