Yeah, because when it was good, it was really good!So you had the 996 for 17 years, say it was the worst street bike you ever had, and regret selling it and think it might be your favorite.
I'm assuming it typically takes a 190 rear?2018 Monster 1200S. Just bought it about a month ago. My first Duc and absolutely loving it so far, except for the fact it's too damn easy to do stupid speeds. I told my wife after my first local ride around home that I'll have a ticket on it within 6 months. It was 99% stock when I bought it and I've already thrown some money at it to personalize it. This picture was taken four days ago in N GA on my first mountain run with it. That Akra slip-on sounds amazing and to my ear it surprisingly sounds a bit like a V4.
Question for the knowledgeable; has anyone put a 180 on the rear? I know the wheel is a fraction of an inch wider than a typical 180 sized wheel, but I'm curious because I have a barely used set of S22's that I pulled off my Tracer after taking the YCRS last year and I'd love to throw those on the Monster and shift the PR5's currently on it to the Tracer.

I ran 180 rears on my multistrada a few times when that was the tire I could get or already had. I honestly couldn't tell the difference. You may actually notice it turns in a little easier.
Sweet bike by the way. The 1200 motor is really a great street bike motor, add the ohlins and the exhaust and that's a pretty sweet set-up.
