Hi, at the risk of getting shot down in flames from those more sensible than I am :nopity:, I have my heart set on getting the Ducati Monster 696 as my first bike. I know that it is not LAMS approved in Victoria and so there is a definite risk of prosecution if caught, however, many other reviewers have also seen it as a great learners bike, if you really want a DUC. I have also looked closely at the Suzuki Gladius SFV650K9 and the BMW F650GS, which are both LAMS approved and while quite different to the Ducati, seem to be great options as well. I'm 6'1 / 85kgs. Am I off the rails in wanting the Monster 696 as my first bike or should I go for the bike I'd love to ride first up, despite the LAMS risk issue ?
