Welcome to the forum!

My daughter has said that when she learns to ride she wants a Monster. Great motorcycle, that!

But yes, you need a Triumph of your own. A cruiser to balance out the hooligan bike.

Cheers!

Welcome! Congrats, I love my Monster and won't part with it for anything!! Even for the 25K I was offered for it (it is highly modified)!!

I chose the Thruxton to replace my aging power cruiser and be my "second" bike. The Bonne just didn't have the ground clearance to do the corner scratching I love to do. I'm addicted to the sportier looks as well.... Take your time, ride 'em all and get the one you like....

Some very good advise, Hypurone. Nothing beats the test rides to find what makes one happiest.

@Sean yes, it's a blast to ride. I've put something like 300 miles on it in the past week or two.

@hypurone I just took a look at your monster. That is one very pretty bike.
