When the first Monster rolled off the assembly line, Bill Clinton was POTUS, the Brady Bill was signed into law, the Branch Davidians were getting a taste of tough love in Waco… other Texans were faring better: Doug Polen was kicking butt on a Fast by Ferracci Ducati in WSBK and the AMA, while Kevin Schwantz was winning the 500cc championship on a two-stroke Suzuki. Beanie Babies were hot, as were Phil Collins, Nirvana, Snoop Dogg, Boris Yeltsin and my ex-wife. So long ago… but we’re talking Ducati Monsters right now. Eyes on your own paper, everyone. Does anybody have to go to the bathroom before we start?
