Wind buffering behind a semi can be a little intimidating for a new rider. If you rode bigger bikes, wind will move you around more on a KLR, don't freak out.
I would highly suggest keeping it 65 or less till you get the feel of it.
The important thing is to ride your ride. That is, ride to your abilities. Just because there is a 70 MPH speed limit doesn't mean you have to ride at that. Stay in the right lane and let the traffic go around you.
When I am in the USA I try to avoid as much Interstate as possible. When I do get on I go at the pace I feel comfortable with. No matter what speed you drive there is always someone who is going to drive faster.
