I was noticing that we are up to 189 members as of a few minutes ago and that a large percentage of you have never made a post. I sometimes get tired of reading from the same ten blabbermouths all the time (and I know I'm one of them ).
How about introducing yourselves and maybe letting us know what you would like to gain from reading the DML Monster Boards?
I would suggest the following information:
1. Name (optional)
2. Type of Monster you own (or want to own)
3. Where you live
4. What you hope to gain from reading this board
5. Anything else you have to say
Okay, me first:
If you haven't figured it out already, I'm Scott Nelson. I own a red 1997 M900 that I've owned since new (September of 1997) and is still my favorite bike of all time. I live in Pleasanton, California, in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm always trying to learn more about my bike and hope to share my knowledge with others when I can.
I look forward to learning who the rest of you are.

The Monster was wrecked on October 4 of 2003. It was replaced with an ST2, complete with hard bags. In September of 2004 an 888 SPO was added to the garage. There might be another Monster someday.
Welcome to the board. We have twins. I love mine. I'm sure you do too. Happy riding.Hello everyone,
I am Mert Yılmaz(Marco). View attachment 224442 Living in Cyprus. I have 2012 M796. I have this bike nearly 1 year. Very happy to have it..
The biggest problem is living in Cyprus. No official mechanic service here and difficult to trust rest of the mechanics. They are not efficient.
This is the first reason I attended here. To take your advise/recommend and try to fix minor problems by my own..
I already have one small problem and already opened conversation for that..
During those covid 19 days while we under lock down I wish you all safe and healthy days..
