Street Triple R advise needed

I just joined up and hoping I will be a STR owner soon. I am looking at a bike which has roughly 9K miles on it...good condition / 2009.
Asking price: $5200...any thoughts on whether this is a good buy.

Alternatively I am looking at a ducati monster 2009 with about 6K miles but only around $4200...
The ducati looks great / but I am not able to get myself off the street triple R...have been reading so much about it.

Thanks folks...

Looking forward to have some good riding fun in the days to come!

Welcome to the forum!

Naturally, the folks here are going to support the Street Triple. But the Ducati Monster is also a very cool motorcycle. Have you ridden both? You may find one more of a natural fit for you than the other. The price seems fair, but you may be able to offer a bit less. More important, though, is that you say you can't stop thinking about the Street Triple. I think that tells you where your passion will be best served. Good luck with your choice.
