150 mph is a long way to slide on your upper cheeks. Gear is cheap. Skin, not so much.

I was shifting where I needed to I felt. If I was short shifting I was missing a perfect shift by a couple hundred rpms. Better that than bounce off the limiter.

More to it than that. You watch your dyno chart and you will see power drops before you reach the point of bouncing off limiter. The down side can be having to hit another gear right before the line. That's where hearing comes into play.
