I did the 16T and it is so effortless to do 75 (indicated) now. Cruising through town is now in 3rd gear, instead of lugging at the bottom of 4th gear. That means fewer shifts. Starting off isn't a problem, either, because quite often I was starting in 2nd gear anyways. ??!?
I can see where it would be a problem off the road. First gear is way fast. But then again it was too fast on the old 600, which supposedly had lower first gearing. Going to check the deer stand will be an adventure...
