If I could make a comment, go look at GIVI and find out about their luggage. I have seen and examined DP luggage and it is overpriced. Ducati has vendors in Italy that make all of their stuff, they make absolutely noithing in house and so the mark-up is big to start with from Ducati, Italy. There are many dealers that offer and can get you GIVI. If not look at your soft baggage selection, you will have many more choices on color and size. However there is no replacement for the ultimate security of Panniers.
Have givi on another bike, and like it, but can only find a tail bag for the monster... do they have side bags for the monster I am not aware of? I think 5 stars makes a side rack, but their site was inconclusive on fitment.
At any rate, does anyone know where to get Ducati perfomance stuff at a good mailorder price? Their side hardbags look quite nice, although pricey!
