Best roads for the Hyperstrada

I purchased the Hyperstrada to focus on my favorite kind of roads. Roads like these:

























Not freeways. Not cross country. There are far better bikes for long distance travel.

From my perspective, the focus of the Hyperstrada is riding these roads. Getting between locations is best done hanging on the back of my car.

Throw in the unpaved backroad capability the Hyperstrada offers and the supermoto capabilities really shine.

Another couple thousand miles of these roads planned for each of my spring and fall rides.

For a whole lot of reasons, and based on personal experience from riding across the US, mostly the southern half, the West is the Best. Well worth the effort to ride there.

Far less traffic that east of the Mississippi, even on the tiny backroads.

Motorists in California, including log trucks, pull over to the side of the road to let motorcycles pass.

Motorists out west have the ability to drive in their own lane, and NOT cross over in every corner into my lane.



Whether carrying luggage and riding town to town, or daily rides from one central hotel, there is endless opportunity for riding out west. Riding without having to compete with the heavy tourist roads that are promoted in motorcycle magazines.

Talking of heading west i would agee, anywhere in wales is good!

Up in the clouds in the Brecon Beacons, very windy switchbacks, fantastic road but plenty of sheep about!


Pembrokeshire coast, lovely smooth sweeping twisties.


Elan Valley, this was 20 miles of mostly single track road which made for the best ride I've ever had on this bike, it couldn't have been better suited. As I approached the the top of one hill there was a guy sat next to his bicycle holding his hand to one ear and giving me the thumbs up with his other. put such a grin on my face!

Pity you guys have to adorn your bikes with such a huge sail on back.
