Excited that I am getting back into riding again. Previously, I have owned:

1996 VFR 750 for five years
2000 RC51 for two years
2002 Triumph Speed Triple for on year

Just bought this 1999 Monster 750 with 26,XXX for $2,000. I feel kinda like I stole it considering it is in really nice condition and the person I bought it from owned it since new. He had every single service recorded for it for the last 11 years!

It definitely feels A LOT slower than my previous bikes. But it looks really nice and handles well too. I am excited to cruise on it and take it a bit easier than I did with my previous rides. I am now a dad and it's been four years since I owned a bike!

Yes the RC51 was quite a bike. It handled beautifully and was completely composed on any surface. The riding position was pretty aggressive, however. It really is probably the best bike around if you are going 100+ mph.

It was so, so smooth.
