I'm Robert Beebe. I live in a suburb northwest of Chicago. 6'1" @ 290.lbs 47 yrs old. Bald by genetics - have grey haired goatee - 1/2 sleeved tattoos both arms and across chest, shoulders, and back. My wife thinks I'm good looking, but she also wears glasses.I just purchased a 2012 / Monster 696. I've ridden Harleys most of my riding life. Started on a 1970 Norton Commando 750, then a 1978 XLCH Sportster, then a 1989 Heritage Softtail, I inheirtated a 1989 Honda 650 Hawk (This might explain my attaraction to the Monster) I re-built from the frame up a 1981 Harley Shovelhead in 1995. I still have the Shovelhead - all other bikes have been sold. I was missng the Honda and had a little cash on hand so I found myself at MCC in Villa Park ,IL. The Monster 696 was the most bang for the buck I had. A couple of seasons on the small Monster and I'll most likely be trading up to a Bigger Monster... we'll see. See ya on the road.
