I've done many big mileage tours on the exact same model. I always aim to fill the tank at 150 miles. I can get 180 at a push but don't like to risk running out of fuel in a remote spot.

Always ride solo and find that its a brilliant bike to tour on. Magnetic tank bag and Kreiga 30 litre tail pack is all I need for 3 weeks travel around Europe.

An unladen STR is wonderful fun in the Alps, Pyrenees, Picos de Europa, NC 500 etc.

Swapped the standard gear selector lever for a nice shiny red Billet one.  In the process, I took the front sprocket cover off and gave the inside of it a good clean.  7k miles of chain gunk is pretty grim!!  (I'm assuming by the state of it it had never been off before.) The sprocket itself looks in very good nick still, but the sprocket nut had gone a bit rusty, so cleaned it up with a bit of WD40 and a small brass wire brush.
Also swapped the clutch and front brake levers for Evotech levers. 

Just need to swap over the existing chain adjusters for the red Billet ones I have sitting on my workbench and I think that is the end of my tinkering and replacing items.  Can't think of anything else I particularly want to do to it.

 I fitted a Renntec rear carrier to mine,I had to take the undertray & side panels off,plus slacken off some other stuff & remove the rear light to fit it.It's the most complicated rear rack fitment I've ever done!!

Fitted one to mine only to decide it just wasn't big enough to hold a sandwich box !

Sent it back and bought a Givi rack, much bigger, better arms....and way more complicated to fit but I wouldn't have been able to use the rentec for much.  Disappointing really as I have used rentec racks for years with no problems but not this time.

Be interested to see how you get on with it, maybe just me !!

fitted a denali soundbomb as my previous horn was giving up the ghost and my daily commute normally warrants use of the horn on several occasions.
I opted for the split version as i thought it would be easier to find places to mount the bits separately.
I was initially hoping to mount the compressor on the l/h fwd frame slider mount but after much deliberation I decided against it and mounted it under the seat instead. The horn was mounted in the original place using a newly fabricated bracket and now sits just behind the radiator cowl facing rearwards which will hopefully stop it getting full of crud.
I bought the purpose made wiring kit which made life easy but is a bit long in some places.
It is much louder than the previous horn and sounds more like a truck. 😜
