What are you going to put on the platform?

Looks good though!
I've ridden in light rain, but not through a puddle or mud. Never plan on driving through mud anyway and if I drive through a puddle it would be when it's raining out anyway so I will expect to get wet. I do plan on doing some light off-roading with my Hyper at some point and seeing how I like it, but I'll dress accordingly for mud and dirt sling.

I have basically no fender on my Hyper 1100, and even just the rain mill throw road grime all over the back of my jacket. I also sit up by the tank.

What is the view like out of the mirrors while going down the road? How much shoulder? Vibrations?

special light bulbs?

Yesterday I discovered that one of my rear turn signals had quit working. It's interesting that the way it acted was to flash normally for a few times and then faster; it's obviously not controlled by a simple relay.

When I pulled the bulb it looked okay but had no continuity. So I pulled one out of another signal, same amber color and rating. Son of a....the stock bulb has offset pins! They are maybe 150 degrees apart, not 180. Won't find those at a NAPA! What, I'm supposed to go to the dealer for a freakin' light bulb?

Luckily I had a set of fleabay LED takeoffs that had been included with a Termi kit. And when I installed them, they flashed at a normal speed - guess the computer recognized them. They are half the size of the OEM ones, look nice too.

Seriously, Ducati should have fitted LEDs all the way around. And now I have a spare bulb for the front.

Agreed. Halogens in this day and age is old school. Should be all LEDs and I'm upgrading mine as such, for both front and rear indicators. Might even replace the headlight halogen with a xenon HID.

Bi-Xenon kit

The Retrofit Source Inc

Scroll down to the Motorcycle Stage 1 kit. $150, good value I think.

They are connected to the high beam only.
Denali D2 has 900 lumen, mine 3000 lumen
StefanR, need some help with Moto LED install.

1. Where did you splice into high-beam wire? At the rear of headlight housing?
2. Where did you ground the lamps?
3. Did you install a relay? I see what looks like a relay box just aft of your lamps in-line with the wire. Mine didn't come with one and since I'm piggy-backing off high-beam and it's a relatively short length, didn't think I needed relay's.
4. The lamps have built in overheat protection. Did you install a fuse anyway?
5. Are there actual positive & negative leads? I know with some driving lamps that it doesn't matter.

The lamps are very good quality for the money but I didn't get any instructions included. There website is just a market with no manuals or details on the wiring.

I Ride: '16 Multistrada
If we can redefine 'today' to mean 'in the last week or so', then today I installed the R&G Tail Tidy and the Skene auxiliary brake and turn rear LEDs. Having been rear ended hard a couple of times (in my car, fortunately) I am paranoid about being seen from behind.

Word of warning: I didn't notice until waaay too late that the tail tidy for the Hyperstrada is not the same kit as for the Hypermotard. I had to get creative with the cutoff wheel to create the notches in the wiring tray needed for the pannier mounts.
