My First Ducati, My First Monster, My New Passion.
I bought my Monster 821 Stripe in December last year without even test riding it. I was looking to get back on two wheels after 10 years without a bike. I'd always been on Japanese sports bikes, which I loved at the time, but I wanted something different and something special and so it had to be a Ducati and a Monster.
Five months on and the bike is everything I hoped for, the looks, ride, torque, the noise and yes even those little niggles you only get with Ducati's, just confirm my decision to join the Ducati family and in deed the Monster family, the right one.
