Sure... the Monster frame is almost a carbon copy of the 888 sport/racebike frame, and therefore should be plenty strong for offroad (ab)use.

It looks like they have all their bases covered, but here are a couple thoughts:

1. I'd advise some sort of small fan for the oil cooler.
2. When Monsters tip over, the bars ALWAYS dent the tanks.
3. Flatten the seat out a bit, so's you can move around... the extra seat-to-peg space couldn't hurt.

Otherwise, rock on guys... that thing is tight!
