Getting a Ducati 696 tonight! The train says *WooT Woot*

Post by STiLe » Mon Jul 11, 2011 11:38 am

Recently been thinking of getting a new bike with more pep. Originally I wanted a Honda cb600f - Honda Hornet - then a friend showed me the Monster line up and I fell in love with the Ducati 696 Monster. This weekend I found one, checked it out, and today I'm picking it up after work. Super Stoaked!

That is a good looking bike! (and that is pretty much all that I can say about it because I know nothing about bikes :(

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

why'd you pick the duck over some of the other nekkeds? was it strictly a visual thing? i know a ton of people really dig the ducs for their looks.

Visuals captured me at first, then it was the video reviews I watched, and the nail in the coffin was my friend's $0.02 who works at Coleman Power in Falls Church. I checked out some other nekkeds but the 696 Monster was like *SHWING SHWING*. As for the Craigslist owner that's a different story altogether....I had to beat him to death with his own shoes. nasty business really, but sure enough I'll get the 696 and go on to have a great ride.

Lol ahhhh man that is a good deal! You know how I know? Because I bought that Helmet 3 months ago for $469 before tax and that was with a hook up that even beat the original price from motorcyclecloseouts.com. Well if you come across a deal on a white Icon Accelerant perforated leather jacket please let me know as I am in the market, but can't find it cheaper than $390 anywhere.

I am sure I will find a deal 3 months after you buy them :wink: but I will keep a lookout for you.

Heh heh, Just watched a video review on the Icon jacket and am ordering that and some Icon Overlord gloves now from motorcyclecloseouts.com. Look forward to seeing your post in three months =D.
