Congrats man it's nice! My coworker had a 6xx Monster (600 something model don't remember exact number) but rode it and it was a blast even after getting off of my 06 CBR 1000RR modded.

That would have been a 620. Really fun bike with a mill that just loved to rev. The 160 rear tire instead of the 180 on the others made it really nimble.

Always loved the monsters! Wish I would jumped on a friends when he sold it.


IMO the ol' 900 was THE perfect monster.

Ok I just got off duty and I had a nice little package from UPS waiting. Yay!

Wow is all I can say....Not only is it way lighter and just flows (looks wise) with my factory headers (I polished them) but the single sided swingarm can now show off its beauty and man does it sound NASTY! I recorded a HD video of the stock pipe, no pipe, and the Compwerkes. I came inside and uploaded them to the computer and even with my sound card and 5.1 surround it doesn't even come close to the true color/sound of the exhuast note. So its not a great representation of the sound...It sounds soooooo good. I'm having a buddy come over later to film me from his truck while I'm on the bike so you can hear it under load and I'll do some drive-bys and downshifts. So check here tonight for a video. :wink:

Fireman, I'll bet I could lose my driver's license on that bike in a matter of hours. Nicely done.

Love the Ducati wristbands on the reservoirs. My 1098S never had the passenger pegs installed. Heck, the passenger seat pad never touched the bike. It's been in the bag from day one.

Thanks! They are fluid reservoir socks though. They keep the plastic reservoir and brake/clutch fluid from braking down in the sun. They will also absorb any leaks from the cap that might trickle down to the front tire.

Have you seen the new 1199 Panigale!? Wowsers!

I didn't know they sold reservoir socks as specific items. I just put wrist bands on my bikes to do the same thing you said. My 1098S has a Reebok wristband on the brake reservoir after my Under Armor wrist band stretched out.

I had a brake reservoir blow on me on the track once. It instantly stripped the paint off the tank and body work and literally disintegrated the plastic windshield. Like, it just dissolved into nothing. Scary stuff.

I am a mod for a major Ducati forum. We talk about the Panigale nonstop there. I was lucky enough to be invited to the private Los Angeles premier party at the W Hotel way before it was evershown to the public at bike shows. I got a lot of close up pics and even got to sit on the bike to see how it feels.

I'll shoot you a link to the thread with all the pictures.

Nice. I just wish I was back in FL to go riding with you. I love Monsters, and that 1100 is NO JOKE.

As a 30+ year rider, who was privileged to own more then 2 dozen bikes and had friends/relatives who owned as many if not more then I did, and who made a rule that you had to let your buddies ride your new machine, means I rode singles, vertical twins, transverse mounted twins, flat twins, v twins, triples, both inline and flat, 4 cylinders including lots of transverse mounted 4's as well as flat and V 4's, and a couple of 6 cylinders for good measure-plus a couple of street bike ring dings-whew.
Having said all that, IMO the Ducati 90 degree v twin is the best motorcycle engine configuration, combining power, torque, narrowness, and that sweet sound.

Norton, I also have close to 30 years of riding all kinds of bikes and styles, including dirt, street, track and roadracing (AMA/MotoGP style not fast n furious biker boys).

Of all the bikes I have owned and ridden, including Italian exotics of every kind, I love the Aprilia V60 and the Ducati L90 engines the best for sporting bikes, and Harley's V-twin for cruisers.

I hear you my friend.
My most memorable bikes were
-RZ 350 Kenny Roberts edition Yamaha ring ding.
-The original Honda 6 cylinder CBX before they hung the fairing on it and tried to make a sport tourer out of it.
-900 Brutale. Man that thing just looked like trouble.
-1978 Triumph Bonneville I used to ride with pockets stuffed with spare fuses and light bulbs.
