On the east coast (US) the logging trucks do not pull over. Also some of the roads are split by the trucks, in the direction of travel - throw in frost heaves and you have a whole ton of fun winding through the mountains. I love it (not being behind slow trucks - but that's where 100hp comes in) , and rain or shine, the bike with standard suspension has taken everything in stride.

I've redone my hitch carrier set-up because my car is so tall. With a drop hitch I have cut down the insertion bar to 1/3 the original length. Super easy to roll the Hyperstrada onto the carrier now.

Here is how it looked from the side originally:



No new photos.

Ebbetts Pass, and the others from 70/89 to 120, each fall:



Stopping in the middle of the road for a chat:





On this fine backroad hidden in the Sierras:



To a sarsaparilla stop on a favorite eastern slope climb:



Each visit to the Sierras is a delight:

In my opinion, the more challenging roads for the Hyperstrada are those in the wide open spaces of the 4 Corners. This is because of the great distances that are covered, with little gas and high speeds which will tire a nearly naked bike rider.



Yes, there are tasty bits that reward the smaller bike rider:



Some bits are especially well suited to the Strada:



Sights to behold, regardless of bike, all the same:

But then, further east, where the towns are close and gas is everywhere, the Hyperstrada is ideal for those twisty bits, and in between too:

Expect some photos from my upcoming ride. A ride on these roads:

































Look like a good ride?

These are just the new roads. A small percentage of the total ride.

That's going to be a hoot!!

This road looks very very familiar. Myers grade? I crashed on Skaggs shortly after, abruptly ending the 4 day riding trip

I have found my favorite roads for the hyper are smooth, medium speed (40-60mph). The SP suspension does not fare well on the very goaty stuff, and like you said, the tall naked position is not the best on higher speed roads for long periods of time. In that sweet spot though, it's hard to beat!!
