    Service your Ducati. 620 may be the smallest cc monster... but who cares? Its fun to ride and the power is useable.
    My 750 is 60ish hp and its a blast on the track.

    Military guys may be dumb as hammers, but at least they know how to read a manual, and do exactly what it recommends.

    DesmoDog, Where did you go to school?
    I always find a soap box useful to get on my high horse.

    I saw you were in MI and you mentioned having an internal combustion specialty. I went to GMI.....before it was Kettering U.

    So far nobody has really told you what to do based on your posts, so I will.

    Get the service done, like you said and then look at correcting some of the deficiencies of the M620. That will make it your own, because it won't be some hipster styling exercise. Where to start? The answer is suspension and brakes. Begin with looking for some adjustable forks and shock, perhaps from a later more expensive Ducati. Stainless steel lines and good pads. The tires are good, right? How about losing some weight with a pipe? Finally, get some Tannermatic CF bodywork. At least a seat, cause I like the Monster tank. Put an SS half fairing on it, too. This will look like dress up except it all makes it a better bike that just happens to look better. Remember, there is no such thing as too good of a suspension or too much brake.
