Hyper Motard Check In

I am just curious to see how many of you ride an HM? I am a bit of a hooligan but like to use the HM for touring. I find that it's really not bad you just have to plan your trips accordingly when it comes to fuel stops.

Here's a pic of my ride at Mt. Washington Summit

Love my Hyper and I cant wait to do some serious touring this summer. Already added the 6.4 gal tank, grabbed the factory rack, tried the DP tail pack but returned it, and went with a 36 L Givi topcase. My GF calls it a cancer growth on my bike, but i have to admit its extremely functional. I mounted it closer to where the passenger sits, so hopefully less likely to break the factory rack (some people have had issues with too much weight on the factory rack).

heres some pics too, I need to get better ones with the givi on, but Ive been riding (rain or shine) rather than stopping to take photos :)

UPDATE - weather is nice today, washed, waxed, and got some photos. Ready to go riding!

I picked up a '10 796 a few weeks ago and I love it. I find it very comfortable so far and think it was the perfect choice of a bike for me. One of the guys I work with and I have been tossing around the idea of riding to work later this summer. We work on boat in Hood Canal and Port Angeles areas I live in Denver and he lives in Nebraska. So We where Planning a meet and ride.

I'm not partial to that either but to each is own. Also, the DP racks have a reputation of breaking unless beefed up. I do everything on mine from commuting to sport touring. Depending on the ride/season/weather and what I have to carry I use anything from a cargo net on the seat to a set of Cortech sport saddlebags, although you can't use those with the single side can exhaust.

Just got a Hyper

Just added a 2009 1100s Hypermotard to the flock. ( BMW 800GS also ).
Great bike. Love it. I have the Termi 2 into 1 which adds some HP and it goes like stink! I also have the 6 gallon tank and a few other options. Did my first 200 mile plus ride and was surprised at how comfortable I was on various road conditions.. I think the bike is a great second bike.Attachment 254424

Yes... it was Pro Italia and I bought it in Feb. Had 1200 miles on it. Has the Ohlins , Carbon tank cover and best of all the 6.6 gallon fuel tank !

Question about the clutch cover that people change that open and expose the clutch. Is that a performance thing or a hear the dry clutch sound louder..?

Some claim that it helps the clutch run a bit cooler and that the dust does not accumulate. Personally, I think it really comes down to preference. I have the stock cover on my Hyper, and an open cover on my 1098. The open cover looks great, you see moving parts, etc., but it is as noisy as all get-out.

And it's like leaving a food processor at ground level, so you'd probably want to keep small children away. "oh, shiny." wack,wack,wack!

No red key for a '10?

My fiancee is going to buy a '10 HM.

The seller claims to have lost a key, and that there was never a red key. He "has a card that lets you call Ducati and replace the factory key".

True? BS?

No red keys for my '08.
I did order extra keys from the factory, had them cut in a a hardware store, and tried to have them all programmed. The '08 ECU won't hold more than two keys in memory at one time. The key card lists the electronic signature code and the key cut code.

True.

No red key, 2 black keys, and the factory key data card.
