Nice! Lucky wife. I just sold my 695; it was a great bike. I did a lot of 200+ mile rides on it and never had any complaints with the seat or seating position. As soon as I can afford a second bike,...

My current bike (Ducati 695) has plenty of soul. I feel more connected to that bike than any of the ones I've had before it. If I didn't know better, I would say it definitely has a personality....

I am never selling my little Monster 695. It's not...

I've got a helmet with a drop-down visor and I love it. It's the most hassle-free way I've found. I would get prescription sunglasses - having a built-in visor doesn't really help when I'm not on the...

I had to read through the replies to make sure my husband hadn't posted in here! I don't do much of the wrenching on my bike. We generally have the "traditional" division of labor thing going - I do...

Good luck and have fun! You are far more prepared than I was when I took the course. I think - although it's been many years - nobody in my class had any experience, and only one girl had any real...

I had an SV650 that I really liked. It was my second bike, but the one I really learned to ride on. It was a solid bike - very reliable and decent at everything. That said, I rode on the back of one...

Fortunately, it's never happened to me on the bike, although at one point I managed to pick up 3 screws in my car tires in a 6-month period (my husband was more than a little annoyed: "Were you...
