Wind can be rough but you get used to it...I do 85 no problem though and I'm 210 and 5"11 so.

Your 250 can definitely go past 60 trust me, plus when your up against the wind it's always better to push your body into the wind, works for me

You get used to wind over time. Speed is your issue. This bike pushes 95-105 for riders around 185 pounds. If you're shifting around 8-10k in each gear and top at 60mph you need to have you bike looked at. That's my honest advice.

Thanks guys, the bike has less than 700 miles I bought it right after the first service I think its more me than the bike I'm 160-165 lbs and probably am just timid. The wind just freaked me the heck out and that may just be most of it.
