I think that is a fine Monster...but you will run somewhat into some of the issues that people were 1st mentioning in terms of the Sport1000 you 1st inquired about...you are much better off looking for an older 620 or 750 or 800 cc Monster to get yourself aquainted with riding since this is your 1st bike....less power and less of a chance to get yourself too deep into the throttle and into a situation you can't control....the 1000DS motor is used on alot of bikes throughout the Ducati line and is the top of the line Air cooled motor....not one to be taken lightly by a beginner...specially with the budget you mentioned of $5K....you can find a nice older 01/02/03 620 and have change leftover for gear or mods or whatever you find you may need!

my tank on my 900 is like 4.4....I got a tank from a 620 and it seems like it is more like 3.9...so I guess it varies based on model!
