I Ride: HyperStrada & Griso
Look what followed me home!

I was prepared to be disappointed by the power and or ergos. Ha, not to worry, pulling away from dealership on demo, DTC lights up, as the power comes in 1st gear, quick shift to 2nd, then 3rd, time to start slowing and join traffic.

Brakes are very good, using 2 fingers. Pulls pretty good from 3k but you can tell that it would like to be down a gear.

Really short ride, but I was impressed enough to forget about the Multi12 at least for now, LOL.

I was surprised by how many things you can change in the menus, going to the book tonight and ride in the morning.

I tried to go with the base model and just add what I wanted. The SP was just too high I thought for my 32" inseam. The Strada seat will fit the base model, but as soon as I saw that the shock is fully adjustable on the Strada but no adjustments on the base, I dropped that idea.

Forks are not adjustable on the Strada, but they felt perfect for me, I'm like 185 lbs.

Yes congrats, slowly and surely they come, still waiting in NZ to actually see one in the country - struggling to maintain the level of patience - was always told that good things come to those who wait - but for how long?????????

I Ride: was Monster soon Hyperstrada
Sweet! looks like fun. I am going to need to play with the rear shock sag on mine. I am on my tippy toes with tennis shoes on. From what I remembered the Hyperstrada at the show was a little lower. Oh well its not like I need to put my feet down as long as I'm moving.

lucky you, time ago I was followed by a black dog, and I had to run away, it's not the same as you!

Thanks all.

It is getting harder and harder to stay below 6k rpm, motor pulls good above 4k and wants to go. Very similar to the Multi1200, only with less HP. :-)

I backed all the way off of preload, still can just get the balls of my feet on the ground and that is with only 34psi in the both tires.
