I am new to the Board, first post. Picked up M800 dark 2 months ago after years of riding Harleys. Always loved the look of the Monster, and had become bored with the whole scene ( everyone was sooo original in exactly the same way on their Harley. ) After two months of riding the Monster, I cannot believe the fun I am having on a street bike ! I had originally toyed with the idea of keeping both bikes, but the Wide Glide is now eye candy in someone else's garage. I now find every possible excuse to ride instead of reasons not to. Have learned a great deal already thanks to all you guys. Anyone else have the same experience ?
