Maybe you can rename this "Monster Sightings" and we can all post every time we see another Monster somewhere. We'll probably never figure out who any of them were, but it's a good way to get a nice long thread going. 8)
I forgot all about this thread. I got behind a Monster Dark with high pipes going through Pleasanton on my way home from work a few days ago. I caught up with him at the stop sign that turns into my neighborhood and had to honk my horn to get him to look over. Apparently it wasn't a big deal for him to see another Monster rider.
I regularly see a 750 Dark, I think '99, in SF around Divisadero and Sutter. The most naked Monster I've seen, CF front fender, Scotts handlebar steering damper, tail section chopped and stripped bare bones, Phillips Lockhart turn signals, Remus titanium pipes. So minimalist it looks like a motard, very nice. Also has the plate mounted like Juan's, so I figure the rider might be on sfbmha?
Spotted a Dark Monster at the stoplight of Geary and 12th in SF, heading east on Geary. Aftermarket low pipes, stock mirrors. If you're on this list, what kind of pipes do you have? They sounded gooood...
Saw a Monster DARK - stock pipes - headed South on Page Mill Road in Palo Alto tonight around 6:30. I was following it for a while from El Camino to Foothill, where I turned left, and it kept going on Page Mill.
I think it was a girl, couldn't tell...There was a pink (my girlfriend corrected me and said it was "Lavender"...) skull and crossbones on the back of the jacket of the rider.
Dark Monster yesterday (october 5) with twin headlights, on 85 heading towards Mountain View, around 8pm. I was on my yellow M620, stuffed with saddle bags and tail bag, returning from a trip in the Sierras...
If you're new to this board/group, take a moment and tell us a bit about yourself. If you just got a monster, have had one for years, or are just thinking about getting one someday, it's all good.
Welcome to the SF MOB!
I know this is not the parts wanted area, but I wanted to keep it local. I need a new beer tray as my taillight mounting tabs have snapped off. Also, if anyone has or can find one, a Blue with White stripe Seat Cowl as on the 04 S4R. I will pay a very fair price if you have one, or can find one...
Looks like the forum hasn't been active in a while. :)
Any monsters owners here located in the bay area? I'm from South SF! Any upcoming group rides? A weekend quick ride to Alice's will do! :) Hit me up!
Ride safe, guys!
