Hey Desmo, what are you riding? I have a Givi Topcase and rails for sale. The rails are for a 2000 or 2001 while the topcase fits all Monsters (with the appropriate rails of course). They won't mount if you have high pipes though. Very sweet setup, especially for two up riding as it has a backpad you can get that lets your passenger lean against it taking pressure off you. Let me know if you're interested in more details...
thanks for the offer. There's only one problem I am on the other side of the ocean in italy! i am setting up a rental place in Rome and was trying to find out how people like to transport their bits and pieces whilst travelling on a Monster. The fleet will have M800 and I had in mind of equipping each bike with hard luggage by Ducati. The cases are very nice but a touch on the expensive side. So I thought why not ask the experts and so I posted this message.
I got the Tourmaster sport saddle and tail bags but can't figure out what to use as the rear mount points. Could you please let me know what you attached the rear ties to?

If you are doing rentals, do not buy the color painted ones. Opt for the unpainted ones like Givi. I have that one on my Cagiva Gran Canyon and it is great. Maybe you can help me with finding Nonfango side bags and mounts for the Cagiva, or steer me to a Givi or Nonfango dealer there. In the states its impossible to find side boxes for it unless you like the ammocase ones (yuk).
I got the Ducati hard bags (panniers) for my '03 Monster 620. They were kinda expensive, but less than I expected. I didn't get the top case, though. They work well and have a good amount of space; either one will hold a full face helmet. I ride the bike nearly every day to work and got tired of using a back pack. The hard bags work much better. I couldn't find mounts for the Givi bags. Good luck.
