Well, it's been a hard decision but I need to sell my Monster: I need a physically bigger bike. My wife wants to ride along for short trips now and I really want to start taking longer trips. I also messed my back up about a month ago and the aggressive riding position is just too much.

Regrettably I'm not going with another Ducati. I had my mind set on the Multistrada but the lack of dealer support in my area has made me seriously rethink that decision.

Anyway, what I wanted to say was that during my research for other bikes I've visited many other boards and I have to say this one is the best! From the features and technology employed to the people that make up the list - this place rocks. [smiley=applause.gif]

And I'm going to miss it.

Well, we were the best while you were a monster owner, but now that you've become a communist, we hate your guts!!! Monster....agressive riding position??? I've broken my back twice & use clip-ons on both of my monsters.
But, since you're leaving us (you SOB!!) take a serious look at the Tiger, it's a great bike.

well, if you HAVE to look at another bike, check out the yamaha fjr1300. sport tourer with bags and 145 hp. they're hard to get a hold of though, i hear there's a waiting list.

Goldwing! :eek:

No, I'll be getting a spanking new R1150R. It came down to the V11 or the RR.

Yes, I know I'm a wimp . . . I was lured in by the heated hand grips.

Herb, Scott still rides a Ducati . . . how would you feel about a german in your midst? ;D

I'm still here, sans Monster. I haven't been excommunicated (yet :D). I feel you on being too big for the Monster.

I've got two germans living in my garage (R75/5 & R60/6) so sharing a bbs wouldn't be hard.

;D

selling your monster doesn't mean you have to leave us. enjoy your new bike and come back to visit.
Haha cool! I'm going to make Blabbermouth status yet!
