I bought my first Ducati in 2008. It was a Monster 696, and I loved it. For some reason, I traded it in for a GT1000. After falling victim to the gas tank dilemma, I traded the GT in on a Streetfighter 1098. It was a great bike, but for some reason I traded it in on a BMW R1200R. That too was a great bike, but it was a little boring. I traded the R in on a BMW K1300s. The K was a fast bike, but had electrical problems. I just traded the K in in a Monster 1100 evo. Wow! I forgot how much fun it is to ride a bike! I think I just stepped off the new bike carousel!
