my SIL's main ride. An Infiniti something or other and last test pic. www.tinypic.com works very well. Much easier than photobucket...

Scott, it rained like hell all day long. Hopefully, I can take it out early next week pending the weather. I can't wait! :)

That's how it usually goes. :( I bet you can't wait, I'm really itching to get on mine again but the weather hasn't been cooperative here. When was the last time you were on a bike?

I took a test ride on a new Suzuki 750 GSXR about 2 years ago. I have a Suzuki/Kawasaki/Ducati dealer right behind us. Same place where I bought my 70 Kawasaki Mach3...

That's cool that it's been there so long. I can't think of many motorcycle shops that were around 30 years ago that still exist where I grew up.

I bet that GSXR was an interesting ride....those things are fast. I find the Duc is deceptive, it's a torque motor rather than HP one and I often find myself going far faster than I thought I was without realizing it....since the motor isn't rapping 10k+ rpms.

BTW, according to that forecast Sun looks like a good day. :D

Scott, I didn't like the Suzuki at all. It scared the piss out of me! Felt very twitchy and I felt uncomfortable on the bike. One crack of the throttle and you were in hyper-warp...

I'm sure you'll find the Monster a lot more to your liking. It's totally different in both the way the power comes on and the handling.

I'm not sure how the Monster is but my Duc has a very short arc lock to lock, it takes some getting used to but it's only noticeable at slow speeds. Be sure to get the feel for that before you take off, the first time I made a left turn from a stoplight I wasn't sure I was going to make it all the way around. :o Now it seems normal.

Thanks! I'm happy to know that, seem weird though. If I ever get another bike, highly doubtful, it would be one of those used Honda's with the mechanical driven cams. I loved those bikes and they felt great on me!

I don't think it's as bad on the newer ones as it was on the older ones like mine. It has to do with the trellis frame and the way the tubes connect at the headtube.

I take it you mean the VFRs...those are nice. I have to say after spending a few years on the Duc I'll probably never buy anything else, for the way I ride I find mine near perfect. I loved the high-strung I-4s before but they do nothing for me now. :)

You'll eventually end up on a BMW boxer. ;)

I don't miss my Ducati at all.

You'll eventually end up on a BMW boxer. ;)

I could see owning one if I wanted to do some serious long distance stuff....which isn't on the agenda at the moment....but a Multi could work for that too. Or if I get old and don't care about going fast around corners. :p I don't ever see myself riding a pirate bike, I can't stand that "begging dog" position.

For the way I ride now it is as close to perfect as a bike could be.
