As I get closer to my first bike purchase I know for sure that there is no other bike for me than a monster. I have two main questions. First, for years between 1999 and 2004, which do you like the most and for what reasons? I would like to know from people that know the bikes what the main design and performance changes are if possible. I guess that my main question is, is there a specific year that I should NOT purchase for any reason? Second, I'm a tall 6'4 guy and want to know if the 695 is a large enough bike for a person of my size, or should I think about getting the 750 or 900? I am very thankful to anyone who posts a response to this thread. I want to have as much of the best information possible when I make this purchase.
