Ever come to the realization that there is something fundamentally wrong with your brain? I have decided to embrace it rather than fight it.

Not normally one to lust after fancy Euro bikes, but this one bit me pretty hard. The 18,000 mile valve adjustment doesn't hurt anything either!
Interesting. I went to the same show, saw the same bike. While I appreciate it, it doesn't speak to me. Also didn't fit me very well when I sat on it.

Now the Monster 1100 EVO that was nearby at the same Ducati booth, that's another story... It already has me figuring out how to put a 3rd bike in the garage...

That EVO is a really nice bike. A real looker, and has the pedigree to back it up. But I don't think its the one for me. Didn't feel connected to the bike when I sat on it.

Thankfully with so many great motorcycles today we have some choice, what is one riders ideal bike, certainly isn't all riders.

I sat on it as well. Classic Monster ergos, which I know all too well, as I own an '06 S2R 800, in Red & White.

That bike is too pretty to trade in...

You're right.
Don't trade it in.

Give it to me, and buy the new 1100 without the trade-in.


But I'll have to see a picture first!

I was just browsing recently and ended up looking at some italian beauties (motorcycles ). I doubt I'd ever be able to afford one...oh well





I think if I could afford one it would be the Benelli or maybe the Bimota

I'm not a Harley guy but that's also the only one that would get me close. Pretty bike. I believe there's a CVO version, or was? I'm not up on the Harley models much.

If I thought I could set it up for a long day in the saddle (I take several long trips per year) I'd probably buy one. It's by far my favorite Harley.
