The search to find the coolest Monster in North America.
Ducati is looking for the coolest, baddest, most customized and unique
Monster in all of America. If you’ve got a Ducati Monster that you feel is up for the challenge, then enter the Ducati Monster Challenge! The grand prize
winner will take home a new 2005 Ducati Monster S4R.

The Ducati Monster Challenge will take place at selected Cycle World
International Motorcycle Shows across the country. The Monster Challenge will be featured at these shows: San Francisco, Dallas, Long Beach, Seattle, Atlanta, New York, Montreal, Detroit, and the finals will be held in Daytona, Florida during Bike Week. If you want to be considered for one of these shows, please submit your entry form and photos for pre-screening (details below). The 20 bikes selected for each local show will be displayed in a special area at the IMS Show where they will be judged for 1st, 2nd, 3rd prizes as well as a “People’s Choice” winner chosen by the votes of show visitors.

Challenge dinner on Friday night with the other entrants.

5. The bikes will be on display at the IMS show Friday and Saturday. Saturday night, the winning bike will be put on display in the Ducati Corporate booth for Sunday.

6. If you are chosen as a National Finalist, your bike will be shipped to Daytona in March 2005 for the final round of judging for the Coolest Monster in North America.

It would be great to see some entrants from our group! Since there is a Seattle regional (and we're the only DOC in the PNW) I think someone from this group has a good chance of winning. So take the pics and send them off for consideration!

Who's entering?

I entered my Foggy. The custom Monster (Hurricane) may be on display also. Dave, you should get your 996 Monster displayed. It may not be eligible to win but it should be shown.

Alright kids, I just spoke to the program coordinator for this Monster Challenge. He needs more entries !! only 2 from the NW so far ! If you need help sorting out how to submit your entry just give a call and I will explain what I know. Deadline will be two weeks before the show so you have about 30 days left !!

Nobody else apply! I like those odds. ;)

My Monster is gorgeous, but no show winner I am sure. I don't think I want to subject the poor girl to that sort of pressure and critical judgement - all she has to know is that she is perfect by me (and again, never mention the SBK discussion around her....) :happy57:

Seriously Monster owners time to apply. Look what you get for making the cut.

"You’ll receive a complimentary ticket to the IMS Show, a Ducati Monster Challenge T-shirt, and an invitation to attend an offsite Monster
Challenge dinner on Friday night with the other entrants. "

Not to mention bragging rights over all the other Ducati owners who's bike won't be displayed. :D

If you would like to participate in the M challenge and need custom work see Dave and Herb in our Performance Center. Dave and Herb have done a few of these and would love to help you out.

Think there's room for a rat bike in there? :)
Could always put off swapping my tank, go find some mud puddles, and safety wire a bunch of stuff.

I think a true RAT is a good idea there will be a lot of trick bikes. But a seriously beat monster with mileage might inspire them to give you the new one.

If someone in the Seattle area needs pictures taken feel free to give me a shout.

(finally caught up on stuff, so what better time to get backlogged again!!!! :) )
