Well, my Honda Hornet was stolen from outside my partners place, so I was forced to search for another bike. I tell you, you don't truly miss something until it really is gone. I managed to find a relatively cheap 2004 Ducati Monster 400 S I.E -- so I just snapped it up as soon as I could. This bike feels so different to both my previous Hornet, and the ZZR-250. It also feels bigger. It idles way different, and if my Honda ever idled like this, I feel it would stall, which is what I think is going to happen, but it never does. It's fully stock, and loud as, might look at some exhausts at a later date. Every time I walk into my garage, I look at the bike and smile, I love everything about it, the way it looks, the way it sounds and the way it performs.
