I have always stuck to my CBR600rr but decided to get something different to change it up a little bit. I got a really good deal on a left over 2010 Hypermotard 796 with 0 miles, so I decided to jump on it. And let me tell you. I LOVE this bike. It's great to flick around and have all kinds of fun with. And it took no time at all to start hanging off the side of the bike like my RR.
