Default Alternate primary gears

Greetings from the land of the damp, wet, and drizzly.

I once upon a time saw where an innovative Aussie was building primary gearsets that offered about a 10% taller drive ratio, for more relaxed highway cruising. Of course, I managed to not hang on to that info. Anyone down there know of whom I am speaking and how to contact him?
Thanks.
Duane

I guess here your problem is your riding late model stuff. Ironheads have a choice from 20T, 24T, 30T, and 34T front engine sprockets.
But if all your trying to do is drop the revs go one or two teeth up on the C/S sprocket.
