Hyper as a Dual-Sport

I just finished a 1,000 mile trip with about 30% done on dirt roads. The bike was great, especially with the "Urban" mode set to DTC and ABS off and throttle to LOW. My tire selection of D616 in the rear and MT60R in the front worked out beautifully. The only thing I would change is the suspension. Especially the front end.

You can read all about the trip and see lots of hyper photos here:

Let's do our own! I want to try Ophir and Medano passes for sure! I want to get a skid plate made before we go though. Did you ever find any aftermarket ones that would fit?

I already installed the one that covers the front cylinder, I was thinking of one that covers the entire bottom of the engine all the way back to the stand.
