Touring on a Stradale

Has anyone tried doing big miles on a Stradale. I'm thinking of taking mine round Europe next year. It will be a hoot round the Alps.

Built for the job, why wouldn't you is more the question...

Did the Picos this year on my TVL and will be doing the Route des Grand Alps in 2017.

I did similar on the Turismo a couple of years ago. It was comfortable in all conditions. The Stradale is lacking a little in wind protection. It's the motorway stretches and tank range that I am wondering about. Just want to know how other people have gone on.

You might have one already but a Puig touring screen might help with the wind protection. Fitted one to my TV and, for me at least, it's a big improvement over the original in terms of noise and protection.

With a 16 litre fuel tank you shouldn't have any issues. My touring buddy rides a 996 and, before he fitted a Power Commander, was looking for fuel around the 110 mile mark, we didn't have an problem with him running out on tour. Did get a bit close on a couple of occasions though. Now he's fitted the PC and had it sorted on a dyno he can make 140-150 miles.

Maybe you run with others who have greater range? If so then they should take you into account rather than risk you getting stranded.

30 000 km so far.

Range depends on where you ride.
Avoiding motorways or anything with guardrails on the sides helps for a better range.

Beside my out of gas light is shot, shows FUEL 99.9 and no part seems to exist to make it work again.

The Stradale rides like a TV with less Turismo and a lot more Veloce

Agreed, I actually prefer the Stradale to the Turismo. I think it is down to a lack of bulk. I looked at a TV the other day and thought why did I sell it, why don't I buy another. I might. But for the moment and for me the Stradale is the better bike.

Well ... Arummmpf ... better ... lessee ... depends on riding style.

But a bike that steers from the shoulders, elbows out, like for chicken dance, moving around to gain traction
IS different.

After the first day and the first 600 mi I trashed the ungainly, fugly Stradale seat
for a flat Rivale number.


Being able to shift about 20 stones on the rear wheel makes the small Stradale a very nimble very FAST
and FUN bike
