Been riding for 3 years now and am ready for my Ducati Monster 696 I went from a 1981 Honda CM200T to a 99 Suzuki GS500. Getting the 2010 696 in white with the Lilac skins and can't wait! Wish I knew more ladies that ride around me though! Haven't met one yet that rides something other than a Sportster 883 or a Rebel. I'm completely in love with the nakeds though... pure sex on wheels!!
