I had a 2007 Ducati S2R1000 Monster which was sadly stolen 2 summers ago. I have a DR650 but have never gelled with it and don't enjoy it much (but great bike). I test rode a 765 street Triple and liked it BUT it just did not have that 2 cylinder grunt I liked so much with Ducati. 790 on the other hand has just enough grunt and also fun factor to make it a worthy replacement for the 1000cc Ducati.

Welcome to the forum Pdxsnap, I would imagine you are very eager for the weekend to begin. Good call on picking it up while the wife is away. Look forward to hearing her reaction lol. Does she have a background in bikes as well?

Got busy last night and got some parts swapped out. Will e more to come.
