or maybe this one?


The $13,295 2013 Ducati Hyperstrada is a new direction for the Hypermotard, offering a crossover between the worlds of motard and touring. Decked-out with 50 liters of side luggage, a center stand and a touring windscreen, the Strada model looks to be an excellent option for Multistrada 1200 fans that find the power, size or price tag intimidating. The rider compartment of the Hyperstrada has been tailored for long journeys with 20mm taller handlebars, a wider and thicker seat and passenger grab handles. Two 12V auxiliary power outlets provide power for GPS units and heated vests. The suspension is also revived for touring duty with a shorter 5.9-inch stroke at both ends from the KYB fork and Sachs shock. Panigale-style 10-spoke wheels come wrapped with Pirelli Scorpion Trail tires to complete the package that weighs in at 399 pounds

When I was young I hoped to be Rich and good looking. At this point, I think that having great stories of many adventures is a much better plan
