    I keep trying to talk my Dad into a Diavel, but he keeps wanting to cheap out and just get a Monster. Kills me.

    That's the first time I heard "cheap out" when talking about getting a Ducati.

    Lol, Diavel is nearly 2x the price of a Monster.

    I don't know how I feel about this. My gut feeling says there has got to be a better looking sister in the family

    I am not a stunt guy at all. I don't even like to wheelie (though rolling endos look really cool). That all being said, some of those guys have an insane level of control over their bikes. Got to respect that

    Today was the MvR show at the Aragon on Lawrence. I swung by after the rain stopped and took some pictures. Pretty good turn out - Lawrence was covered with motorcycles.

    Thanks. I live only blocks away, but I really wish I'd ridden one of my bikes there - neither Honda model was represented! And it might have helped fight the strong desire for a Triumph Thruxton that developed while there!

    They had a full page ad in "Iron and Air" and it was posted to ChiVinMoto. They hold meets in other areas as well - check the VinMoto web site for other chapters and events.
