Hahaha, I just bought an '01 Ducati Monster 900 with 4,600 miles. She needs some TLC as she was a theft recovery. I'm arranging shipping right now, but if she was a southern bike and the weather would hold off I'd just fly out and ride her the 1k+ miles home. Meh, here is a pic for now:

LOL! I was already looking at Termis and Akra pipes............. :eek: haha, I'll ride it stock for a bit till I get the feel for her. The only other Twins I've ridden were my '02 RC51 and a buddies SV650, I hated the SV but the RC was a hell raiser on crack >:D

Very nice bike!! Enjoy it, then get some killer pipes on it! It looks very very clean.
Thanks once again all. I'll post TONS of pics when I get it..........I've been hooked on Ducati's ever since I laid eyes on the 916, I can't believe I just bought one ;D

As far as clean, she pretty much is, but since it was a theft recovery, the idiot theives installed a toggle switch to replace the ignition switch since they didn't have the key and then the morons broke off part of the beauty ring and pried up the gas cap so they could access the cap for refilling the tank. The tank looks to be unscathed though. Like I said, pics to come ;D

Congrats on the bike purchase, BMiller. [thumbsup] [clap]

I saw that bike come up for sale. Glad to hear that it's going to the home of a fellow DML'er.

If you need assistance with your purchase arrangements, let me know. The seller of that bike is only 10 miles away from my home, and I'd be happy to help you with short-term storage of the bike or anything else you may need.

Cheers!

Pete

Awwww... it's like adopting a stray cat. You can find ignition/gas cap sets on eBay for not that much if you keep your eyes peeled for them.
I've been checking there frequently and search on here isn't yielding this answer so I'll ask you guys here: What other years/models of Ducs have Ignition Switches and Gas Caps that fit the '01 Monster 900. I just don't wanna buy the wrong ones because even though they are off different models, alot of them look the same.
