This is one of the best reviews I have ever read. You covered everything in a honest and concise manner. Keep up the good work.

Nice job, KDuke and Fonzie. Vid ('cept for the wind plaguing you at the end) was Top Shelf stuff. Bike looks awesome, too bad I couldn't afford it if I wanted to - I've lost more money than the cost of this bike just since last week.................

What is this the 40th Monster config? I'll hand it to them, they can stretch a model line like nobody else.

The air-cooled Duc motor is a treasure. Anyone who loves bikes owes it to themselves to own one.

Or if your a cheap b@stard like me just get a job as a Finance Mgr at the local Duc shop and ride them for free. Guess it's time to go find a F&I job again.

It's one of the reasons I left the last dealer. We made money, but running F&I and my agency was interfering with demo rides.
