Figured my weekend riding days are limited from here on out (...well they kind of always are here in Washington State icon12.gif) as summer is giving us stronger signs each day that it's leaving us.

Felt good to go for a little rip, hadn't ridden her in a little over a month. Over this winter it's going to go in for a service and have the timing belts replaced, new tires installed and brake pads. One of my reservoir socks blew off while I was on the freeway (or landing a wheelie.... icon10.gif) so I'll install a new pair of Rizoma billet reservoirs at the same time.

The tires that are on it now are track tires and I'm going to switch to the factory tire that comes on the Multistrada for a change. It's more of an urban style tire that I think will look good on the Hyper.

Wheeli ? ? ? ?   Live hard.  Die young!  Strongly prefer a full dress street bike myself.  And NOT an HD either !

Really neat. I appreciate a good sport bike but I just can't feel comfortable riding one. I tried a couple times on friends bike and the seating position kills me.

I know the feeling! The Hyper is nice as it's upright for street riding.

Looking at that picture on my tablet it looks like it sits like a dirt bike. That might not be bad.

I forget what the last sport bike I road was but I felt like my legs were bent against my but and my feet were pointing down. If that makes any sense at all. I remember feeling like one needed to be a contortionist to ride it.

I'm fascinated with that name; Hypermotard. I sounds like an excellent name for my frankinhorse. hyperactive motor retard. Hypertard for short!
