Does Anyone Else Feel the KLR's Tall Gearing Encourages Speeding?

I find that having to shift every time my speed increases by five to seven MPH encourages me to get into fifth gear as soon as possible to escape the "constant-shift" zone. It's for this reason, and not so much because I'm a speed demon (although the need for speed is certainly growing for me), that I often find myself doing 45 in a 25 zone. Have any of you had the same experience?

Incidentally, I will be changing the sprocket soon.
