I have been lurking and thought I would pose a question for you all. I am riding a Suzuki SV 650 - well, not right now, because there's a foot of snow in my driveway! I am deciding on my first Ducati. The choice is either a 900 Monster or an ST2. I am a fairly small guy at 5' 9" tall and 145 pounds and I almost never ride with a passenger, so I don't think I need the extra HP and torque of the ST4s or the S4R. I won't be touring very much, but I like to take short (400-mile) trips around the loop once in a while. Anyone ever been in the same predicament choosing between these two Ducs?
