Just starting to do my research for a Monster purchase this Winter. I'm looking for a bike I can sport tour solo with camping gear and do some day trips 2-up. I've discounted some other Ducati models (ST: not enough sport), SC's (cost too much to modify...suspension, wheels, etc.) and am thinking a Monster might do it for me. I've owned two SS/SP's that I've ridden solo cross country and two 998's. My current bike is an '02 Bayliss 998 that I'm selling to my son. Anyway, although I know a lot about the maintenance of 2V and 4V I know little about living with a Monster. Wondering how people feel about S2R vs S4R and what it's like to live with a Monster generally.
