Now looking at getting a Triumph Scrambler myself. Won’t be for awhile. My brother and I did a 1000 + kilometer ride from wellington to Tauranga (Mt Maunganui.) The DR650 was great and my longest time in the saddle was 9hrs. Ouch!
We took 3 or 4 small breaks for gas at no more than 15 miniutes or maybe twenty. The question is why so much longer on a bike? My brother calls me a slow 100kph rider and himself as a fast 100kph rider. He also added that it averaged out fine. I could probably do the same distance in a car for less time.
It always seems to take longer on a bike. Any Ideas why?
