This one had a rather bizarre windshield that gave much better protection than the HYS one. I think it was an option. And this 2009 GS had the original, almost worn-out 90/90 x 21 on the front, took a while to get any confidence with it. But I got both tires to the edges, something that I seldom do...especially on a borrowed bike!

Thanks for all your help guys! I've been doing a LOT of research on different bikes and I just keep coming back to the Hyperstrada. It seems to do everything I need! Some people think it is ugly as sin but I find myself really liking the looks. If I can find a white one, I think I will just pull the trigger! Will let you guys know when/if I do!
