What's the longest you've ridden on a Brutale?

Yesterday I racked up 9 hours and 359 miles on my '04 750S around some of the best twisty roads south Texas has to offer aka the 3 twisted sisters. I was impressed, the bike just wanted more and more and I was only too willing to "give it the beans" as much as possible.

Maybe I was having too much fun but I never felt worn out until the last few stop lights near the house at which point I could feel my neck, between my shoulder blades start to hurt. I stopped only for gas, pissing and re-hydrating.

So I'm curious what has been the most miles or hours anyone has thrashed around on a Brutale?

On a technical note, is it common to wear a rear tire out in the center from continuously aggressive riding for so long? How well can the MV engines take a proper thrashing for the better part of 9 hours (because it seems mine loved it)?

Can't say I have ridden that many hours in a row, but I have done quite a few 300+ mile days on my Brutale.

You must have been in very twisty roads because your average speed was only 40 miles per hour.

What kind of tires do you have on her? My rear tire generally lasts a lot longer than that..... and your engine will happily run like that for days on end, have no fear of damage. Just service as needed.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Yes, the sisters are amazing. Hmm, my longest ride, so far, on my Dragster RR is around five hours: up to Brenham area from Sugar Land, with exploring around Breham the various FTM roads with curves and topography. Filled tank twice, so that means around 250 miles. I would give a lot to transport my MV to my home of Durango, CO come June. Enjoy!

Engine is build for what you did....?!?! So all good.

Not an Brutale but an F3 (RACIST TITLE!!! -2019 in a nutshell), but longest ride is around 400km in a day in Belgium area.

I have done 425 miles in just over 10 hours which was the longest leg of a 4 day 1450 mile tour around Scotland. A lot of the roads were single track but the scenery absolutely stunning.
Struggled a little bit with aches and tiredness, have a Turismo for tours now which is all day comfortable but the Brutale is still used for days out of up to 350 miles

Yeah those roads are amazing. I figured about 40 mph avg on the twistys and 70-90 mph on the way to and from, so I'm not sure why my overall avg speed was so low, especially since 4-5 hrs was spent getting out there and back. Not to mention I tried my best a few times to...you know see how strong the wind is at certain speeds Although I did have the additional slow down when a Borne police officer felt my license plate was obstructed, which I now get to discuss further with the judge.

I run the Continental Conti Sport Attack tires at 34 psi f&r. I realize when these words are in the marketing: "The Conti Sport Attack supersports street tires are also at home on the race track" they probably won't be the longest wearing tire but I've been happy with the wear over the last 1.5 years.

It just seems after my ride, the center wear indicators are nearly showing. There is not a pronounced "flat" profile at the center so at this time I don't see any real reason to replace them. The front still looks brand new, so I was thinking that maybe the numerous aggressive throttle twists increased the rear's center (heat) wear more than merely the number of miles traveled.

About the longest in one continuous ride apart from fuel stops/hydration was from Adelaide to Philip Island MotoGP. Took about 13hrs and about 1,100kms. I wore cycling gel padded nicks under my riding pants and apart from general tiredness but real discomfort. I've done other similarly long trips and, apart from the gel nicks, I try to always maintain good posture with core support. When I start slouching in the saddle I get grief.

Re tyres, I've had 2 sets of Metzeler Tourance Next tyres for weekend warrior 'spirited' riding and few longer tours and have gotten around 14,000kms. I don't do heavy breaking and use a lot of engine braking

cheers
