Ducati MONSTER 1000 S IE

I've had the bike for years and it's a great bike for the road (I've had the R1s, gsxr 1000s and Fireblades) have also done quite a few Cadwell Park trackdays on it. I always go in the slow group as the bike cannot keep up with the jap multi's on the straights but is a match for them in the bends.
Who needs 190 bhp for the road anyway, how many riders can honestly say they can use that amount of power and if you can you should be racing. If you have never ridden an old aircooled Ducati and are used to the sports bikes you may find it really odd and not like it one bit but I love it. I'm over 70 so the slow bike and slow group suits me well.

This is a good looking bike harking back to 50's 60's and 70's. It's a light weight naked ride full of old school styling and charm. The twin-barreled termignoni exhaust sounds throaty and quite loud. Riding style is upright and comfortable for short runs. The bike is powered by the impressive 800cc V-twin favoured by Ducati. Despite its retro look it comes with many modern enhancements , gadgets and gimmicks. However, the bike is let down by cheap and very poor suspension coupled with poor seating. The rear shock absorber really doesn't absorb anything and has, on several occasions, had me leaving my seat when driving over some of the bumpier, more pot-holed UK roads. The front suspension is a little better but still lacks road feel and can be jarring. A quick look through Scrambler fora and you'll see that most owners have, or will be, changing the suspension and the seat.
I have changed my rear shock and that has helped enormously, I can live with the seat as I have a tourer for those longer rides. The front shock will be replaced sometime soon.
Suspension aside, I like the retro feel, love the sound and it always but always puts a smile on my face. I enjoy riding thing whenever I can.

Ducati 1299 PANIGALE
My dream bike, handles beautifully. Bit loud though! Can be a bit of a handful in the morning commute but respect it, and it'll be all the roadbike you ever want. My dream bike, handles beautifully.
