Yeah, pretty sure that's my problem. There tactical gloves with carbon fiber (ish) knuckle inserts and I always said they would be awesome riding gloves. But, they're made for shooting bad people and punching things with extreme violence and I just don't think they have the mechanics for long rides.

I have a pair of Held gloves I bought 4 years ago. They cost me like 329 bucks. At the time, the salesman convinced me that it wasn't crazy to spend that much on gloves and he assured me I would be happy in the long run. I have to say, they are without a doubt the best damn gloves I have ever owned. They broke in quickly and are still in perfect condition after 60,000 miles of use.

I've not generally gone over 6000rpm, except once when i was doing approx 7500@110mph.
But avarage fuel consumption is 61mpg over 380miles, this is mainly in touring mode but aggressive accelerating upto 6000rpm and steady 70-80mph. A little in urban mode through heavy traffic and towns.
I found 6000rpm or just over would give me approx 90mph in top.
So mainly i've been short shifting through the gears.

Well I just did a 350 trip on the bike today. I took it to the dealer for the 600 mile service. It was all Interstate through the mountains running 70 to 80 mph. Got 50 mpg. The low fuel light came on at about 130 mi and I hit the gas station at 175 mi. Took about 3.5 gallons. I was riding one up and left the bags at home. So looks like I can get 185 to 190 miles if just taking it easy on the Interstate.

I just did 1900 miles from California to New Mexico up through Colorado and back. Let me say I am now on the lookout for a new seat because I thought I had just been in prison for four days. My ass hurt really bad, usually after about 50 miles each day. My fuel consumption ranged from 40-45 mpg in the city/intestate (90+ mph) to almost 55 mpg in the canyons taking it easy or when my speed was between 30 and 60 mpg. It was a great trip but the seat needs a lot of improvement.

I have the lower seat and my rear did get a bit sore towards the end of the ride. I did have a 3 hour break at the dealer while they serviced it. Did get to burgers and soda while there.

Well, I just purchased the Hypermotard SP seat. It's a little flatter and hard as a rock. I'll try it out today. The stock one kills me. I'm stuck in one position and can't move back at all. Hoping the aftermarket hurrys up with a solo design seat. I never ride a passenger.

Just took another 1 hour ride practice run all packed with panniers, topcase, tent, sleeping bag, and airmattress. No room behind the seat to move back an 1". Plan to go to Ouray and area, leaving wednesday.

The Paradox, I have a well tested qualified Super Tenere that I have already been to Alaska on, could take it to the Super Tenere rally in Ouray. But the Hyperstrada will be so much more fun if I can survive the long boring stretches.
