December 2008 Monster of the Month

Hola

seeing as no one else has sent me any pics, here's my 1993 M900, where it all started! Registered in August of 93 this is probably one of the first hundred or so Monsters in the UK. I've had it for close to six years now and ain't gonna part with it! I've done close to 25,000 miles on it, including 2600 miles to Italy and back. I'd rather not think about what I've spent on it over the years....

Anyway, thought it might be nice to see the bike that started the love affairs we all share with our bikes!!

Ped

Nice one Ped! Good to see the old lady looking so tidy still

Sorry - I thought you said you had been inundated with bikes, so we didnt send you anything in the end.....

Hey Ped, you need to twist Jules' arm to put hers in for Monster of the Month.

Nice clean bike - very good condition for a '93. I bet the Leo Vince's sound fantastic.

I really need to get some photos of my bike sorted out. Maybe then she can be a contender for "Miss January"........!
