i'll give a ride reveiw after this weekend but so far i don't like the seat and first gear seems too short. oh and the gas tank is pretty small lol.

Ok did I miss something? You got a new monster? Pics? The gearing and seat problem can be solved easliy, how big is the tank?

tank only hold 3 and some change gallons, i'm use to 5 gallons i guess lol

gas, yes i have the bike for testing. i just replaced the frontend assembly. it's a 2009 monster 1100 S model with 68 miles on it lol. i always ride them for a few days before signing off on them, my names on the line so it has to be right.

for some reason people think i'm nuts for riding a ducati in the cold & rain.... i don't understand them LOL
besides the standard clutch noise, it sounds like a big pissed off thumper. this bike is starting to grow on me the more i ride it.
