New member in Michigan

Hello. After many years without a bike (2004 ZX-10R was last bike), decided to start riding again. Thought I wanted a Monster, went in to look at a 1200R and ended up with a 16 RSV4 RF. Had it for a month, just wasn't for me, thought to myself I should get something more "practical", bought a new Superduke GT. Thought it was great, then my wife decided she wanted the new Monster 821 in dust grey for her first bike, so we bought that, and suddenly I wasn't as enamored with KTM. Figured screw it, bought the 1200R, then a 16 Panigale R they gave me a deal on. Love all 3! Have a few things on Panigale, DP rearsets, DP levers, DP reservoirs, DP fender eliminator, DP race fuel filler, comfort seat.

Excited for lots of riding and winter projects with them here in lake effect snow belt!

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like an exciting summer of buying motorcycle's.
I'm from east central WI. and plan to get across the big pond for some track day's yet this season.
Again, congrats. There are some good people here. Don't hesitate to inquire about any ducati questions.

Thanks! I will certainly admit that I should have bought what I wanted in the first place, but oh well, I ended up with what I wanted, and my wife is amazing, so I didn't get too much crap for it all
