The plan was to use the Monster 620 as the daily commuter and the 916 for fun rides. But when i open up the shed in the morning, i am picking the 916 and the Monster just sits there.
The 916 has 23,000miles. last service was in late 06 @ 19,xxxx miles where the valves where adjusted and the belts replaced. I also had the bike at the local Ducati dealer to give it a good once over when i first got it, and they found nothing wrong other than a blown signal bulb
Good to go.
Daily riding last year i racked up a huge total of 3500 miles haha, but i was working out of town alot last year. hoping to hit more than that this year.
The bike is in really nice shape, but is this a good idea? It;s a 10 year old duc with decent miles. If i sell the monster, the 916 has to be reliable. As in nothing major going wrong.
At the end of the season, i'd drop it off with the dealer for another check up maybe a valve adjustment and belts again?
the main reason is insurance on the Monster is $1180/year and the 916 $1400/year
Thats $1180 to have a bike just sit there
i dunno, what do you guys think?
