Way way back when, Thomas Alberti hosted the DucatiMonsterList on micapeak.com, a motorcycle enthusiast oriented server running mail software. Thomas also ran motobella.com, importing some cool monster stuff and Arrow exhausts. (probably more, but that's what I remember) Then he had one of those unique-to-monster crash-in-a-straight-line things happen, which messed him up pretty well. I recall he kinda bailed after that.
Eventually, the forum thing came along and Jeff H started up what was to become the DML we have today.
The original list based DML is still breathing... DUCATIMONSTER is the lists name on www.micapeak.com
During the micapeak days and now, the Monster list is always a great resource. I bought my Monster in 01 and the List made it easy to accessorize etc. Everyone who has kept it going over the years deserves a "Thank you" and round of applause.
I was on the list 01-03 and then off for a couple of years. Didn't two list members get married?
