done 600 miles now, first thoughts

well i have done around 600 miles on the strada now.
It is pretty good for the roads around north yorkshire which have loads of surface changes and have loads of little jumps to get the bike airborne.
I had a new bmw s1000 naked bike behind me yesterday which couldn't keep up due to the road surface .The rider came up to me after i had parked up and said the bike looked great fun jumping and being thrown around like a bmx bike,to which i replied yep its great fun ,you should try one.
The bike felt much more stable after i had wound the rear suspension up , but the front end could definately use some adjusters, it hasn't given me any worrying moments though, and the traction control lets me give the bike some beans on wet surfaces .

Yes! That's it right there for me too. The Hyper is a ball to ride and still comfortable for long days. I've used the "bmx bike" comment myself to describe the handling and nimble-ness of the 'strada. I love it so much that if I were to win the lottery tomorrow, I would still keep my 'strada. For sure I'd add a BMW GS for really long rides with endless stretches of open highway, and I'd get an SP Hypermotard for track day fun, but the Hyperstrada would be there too.
