Dragster RR on a long trip.

Hi!
I'm about to go on board the ferry to Kiel, and we have a long journey ahead of us
I don't know how many on here that have taken their Dragster for longer trips, if not, I'm going to write about it
So, here we go!

Great pic. Just shows it can be done!

Be interested to hear how the bike performs, any frustrations and what the fuel consumption is like

Hi! And thanks
We have done about 600km, give or take, and the bike is great! My bum is getting a beating, but it's not that bad, the knees are the worst
I'm 190cm, so the knees are getting it! But, I do stand up sometimes, and then it's all good And the rear pegs are good to rest the legs on, just put the shins on them and pretend it's a Panigale for a while
I heard that the Dragster was not a bike for long trips, but, after today, I'm not sure those people are right
It's no GS or Multistrada, but it do the best it can So far, no issues, just a sore ass!
So, for the fuel consumption.... That's bad On the autobahn to day, it was only autobahn, we did about 140-150km/h for hours, and I get about 180km before the light comes on, and when fueling at 230km, I get 15liters on the tank But hey, it's a Dragster!!
Maybe it's not so bad....?
I regret one thing I have done, and that's the suspension settings.... I set it up for "sporty" riding.... Well, that was dumb....
Anyone have any questions, just ask Tomorrow, we are driving the 130km to Nürnberg and then continue to Salzburg in Austria
Can't wait to get this bike up to the alps!!!
