I'm Chris from Orange County, CA. I'm a active duty sailor stationed in Norfolk, VA currently, though. I just purchased a 2008 Ducati Monster 695 and I've become extremely enamored of motorcycles by it. It's my first bike and I hope to get a lot of helpful advice by this forum for keeping it in great condition. I can't wait to take it back to Cali where I can drive it year-round and keep it out of the humidity. Hope to see some of you other Ducs out on the pond!
