    I go to California a bit and usually rent something to ride through the canyons, just in case there is something I'd prefer. So far, among other non-Ducatis, I've had a few days on on a 696 Monster (yuck), a Diavel (meh), a 1200 Multi (hmm) and a 821 Hyperstrada (hmmmm) and on another occasion a Nuda. I liked the 821 the most but it didn't scare the shit out of me like the 1100 does. Maybe if I had worked out how to turn off the rear ABS and wheelie control I might have had more fun. Every time I've come home and ridden the Hyper I lost interest in upgrading.

    The 1100 Hyper is a lot of fun but I'm sure it doesnits uncomfortable, smells, makes horrible noises, has no rider aids and major services cost about a grand. It does feel like a road bike pretending to be a dirt bike so you can't flick it aorund like an actual supermoto. The Marzocchi forks are harsh. Some people hate the mirrors but you can fold them in and split under 4WD mirrors. I reckon it looks and sounds fantastic. I've had no issues in 36,000km. Be aware every kid will expect you to do a wheelie, which can be achieved anywhere between 25kmh and 100kmh.

    Buy the 1098 off lit

    Reliable, it's been across australia.
    “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

    I had both at the same time. I sold the pani and kept the 1098...





    Also, dry clutches don't last long but they are quick and easy to replace without having to drop the oil.

    I sold my bike after riding across the Nullarbor too. I think it’s a right of passage.
