Thumbs up 320km (200mile) trip

Hi everyone,

My new HS was deliverd on 2nd July and today is the first weekend I spent with my HS.
I just came back from my short 320km(200 mile) trip.

I used freeway then moutain paved road to test my new red HS.

On freeway, surprisingly, there is no uncomfortable viberation at any rpm (3000-5000)! With my Monster 796, I was annoyed by it from 3500-4000.
The engine of HS was so smooth.
Air protection is limited even with optional larger screen.
The ergonimics of this bike is very good for me(Height 173cm-sheet hight 81cm). The lump of passenger sheets supported the back of my hip.

On twisty paved mountain road, it turned to the direction which I watched.
The brake power was immence as other Ducati models.
Touring mode is enough for me to brake in the brand new machine.

In highland area, I bought a lot of fresh and rare vegitables.
With huge side luggage cases, I could contain them easily.

Overall, HS is a nimble, quick but good tourer.
I am so happy that I spent a lot of money to deserve it

Regards,

HiroTokyo

Sounds like a good ride! When I was in Japan in 2012, I took a bus from Takayama to Matsumoto. I saw lots and lots of bikes, it looked like the perfect place for a long ride. Enjoy that Duc!
