I Ride: 2014 Hyperstrada
Back in the saddle...

Hi all,
After a too many year hiatus from street riding, I decided to start looking around this year again. Parenting duties fulfilled, too early to retire, needed some extra exhilaration in my life. Boy did I find it this week!
Today I picked up a 2014 'strada with only 1830 miles on it. Looks absolutely brand new. Got to test ride it for about 30 minutes today before taking from dealer, but now waiting for bucket to come in this week.
Holy crap! I'm in love. The pull, the handling, the brakes, the marvelous sound....and that beautiful color....
I hereby promise to thoroughly search posts for answers to any questions I have, spell check to the best of my ability, and keep my opinions to a respectable and friendly level.
Dennis

Welcome to the Strada family Dennis. They are certainly a fun bike but also very competent for a number of uses. Cheers

When you say beautiful color - of course you mean the pearl white!! Enjoy

I guess that they are both beautiful colors, but I'm a sucker for red on any vehicle. Cars, boats, bikes..

The redder the better. Welcome to the bike most closely related to perfection. And you'll love her unconditionally, for it you don't, she will know, and you will suffer. Cheers!

You do know that red goes faster but can also be more finicky.....

All good to know, my friends. I pick up the helmet this afternoon and have the weekend to put in seat time. I'll be riding the northwest hills of Connecticut. Nice riding right out of my garage.
Super excited to get to know her. And I already blow kisses as I walk by after work...honast.
