  • Re: Either I'm getting old .......

    I just used to strap a 5l jerry can to my scooter. Increases the range dramaticlly!&nbsp; &nbsp; Apparently the new bike will get 400km out of a tank. My triumph srpint would do 350km, and my dr650 will do about 420km with the aftermarket tank. Cant remember what the scoot would do, but I think it was about 200km from memory, with the jerry can ...

    not a scooter tour, but I just backed up from a 3500km, 4day tour of the snowie mountains. 1000k, 700k, 800k, 1000k, on a sports bike. All easy days. I spent a lot of time on the pegs toward the end. You need to pull up and have a rest every 2 or so hours. I too copped the 40degC heat, full gear. If fatigued, pull up straight away and rest. You ...

So far, I can say the following are out by -10%: Mistubishi Lancer, Subaru Imprezza, Nissan Navara, Triumph Sprint ST, Suzuki DR650, Suzuki GS500, ...

    When I learn to ride the DR offroad, my plan is to eventually trade all my bikes in on this &nbsp; &nbsp; Of course, then I will need a daily commuter, something with room to carry stuff... Back to a stepthrough I reckon.
