Hi everyone! Just went on my first long ride today 250+ miles around southern California. Here is my welcome and intro thread for some history...http://www.ducati.ms/forums/165-welcome-introduction/151009-new-hm1100-owner.html boring i know, but I'm here to learn. All I can say is I am soooo happy and pleased with this bike. I came from an R6 and don't regret a thing. I wish I had bought one of these from the start!

Here are 3 pics from today (meet up with some people on reddit)

C'mon Darsey, how could anyone not love a hyper? :eek:

Even those who aren't sure are converted after a quick ride, well I was :D
I'll be honest and say I love the look of my R6 way more but when you're riding a bike you can't tell a damn thing about how good it looks. All I can say is I think I'll be keeping this bike for a LONG time.

I'm hoping that if I take her in for the big services and perform the minor ones that she'll return the favor.

Ditto. I find those who knock the HM, usually have never ridden one to be able to justify comments. Or have and say they are no good just to feel better about the inferior bike they actually own :think:

BTW welcome WrathMXer and enjoy.

The look of the hyper will grow on you. Personally I like the hyper better plus the position is much more comfortable. Congrats!

Congrats! I hope you enjoy your Hyper as much as I do mine.

I love my Hyper. I went from a 998 to my 2012 1100sp. Still getting used to the looks, but compared to my 998, the Hyper is SOOO much more fun to ride! I actually am faster on it than I was on the 998, it's more comfortable, much more user friendly.

It's cool to hang with superbikes in the twisties, and also to instantly speed up and hang with faster bikes on the freeway. They don't expect a supermoto style bike to hang at 90 lol.

My thoughts exactly great conversation tool at the gas resting stop. Such an easy bike to flick around in the twisties and the exahust grumble in canyons is music to my ears.
