Hate you. Go get some goggles and a stupid half helmet, then you will be on the dark side eurotrash. When can I ride it?

Yes, it is the new Monster 1100 EVO. I freaking love it! The riding position is very comfortable, it is narrow, is easy to toss around and it feels lighter and stops better than my SV. Where it really feels different is in smoothness. It is very lumpy off idle and really doesn't smooth out until you're above 4,000rpms. Much lumpier than the SV. I typically keep my SV around 5-6k rpms, I think this bike likes to cruise around 5-6k as well. Torque is awesome and it just leaps forward at freeway speeds when you downshift.

It will take some getting used to. I rode it home from the dealership this afternoon so I have about 20 miles on it now.

It sounds fantastic too.

Re: Call me SnootyBikeJules!

Lumpy? You mean the engine or the suspension? If it's engine, it's probably running lean down low for EPA purposes. Do you get popping on decel?

Congrats! That new SV is nice looking. Why did you have Ducati decals put on it?

Re: Call me SnootyBikeJules!

It seems like a Ducati of some kind is the natural progression after an SV....
