I just completed an 1,800 mile, 7 day road trip on my loaded '17 Multistrada. It was a great trip except for 2 days when I had to use the interstate. The wind was blowing 25-30 mph and there were lots of big trucks. (Wide open spaces in southern Utah and Wyoming) I've experienced this many times before and found it difficult at times. One time I tried to pass a large flat bed that was hauling 2 large bulldozers. I was about 100 feet behind the truck when the turbulence caused my bike to move around a lot. I gave up, went into a rest area for a few minutes and never saw that truck again. Regular semis were doable but that odd load got the best of me. I am wondering if the additional 2 inches of wheelbase on the new '18s would have helped. BTW, the only motorcycle that passed my during about 6 hours of windy interstate riding was a Harley Road King.
