I am a very proud owner of a 2000 monster 600. Its my first duc, and I love it. My problem is that its getting time for me to move on to something different. ie a little more power. I am very happy with my monster, and have looked pretty seriously at just getting a bigger model, but I can't take my eye off the 800 SS. My concern is that the 800 ss will be uncomfortable. I have never owned a model that is more racing style. I have always ridden upright riding style bikes. I like to ride the turns, but I also like to cruise. Any help in making a decison.
