I'll have to get pics of mine up one of these days. I keep bags on mine. It seems that every time I leave them off, I need to pick something up. A 6 pack of beer does not like to be bungee corded to the seat.

I've actually had it across the continent a couple times on 3 week long trips. It's not the best touring bike, but it's the only one I got and it's served me very well over the 100,000km's I've ridden it for.

Very nice, is the rear rack a custom built unit or something off the shelf.

It looks like a Ventura rack.

It's actually a ducati performance product, which I picked up on ebay for a fairly cheap price. I think it might be made by Givi for ducati as it looks to be the same system as many of the givi top boxes and racks I see......but I'm not completely sure. It holds a fairl bit of stuff though and my wife likes it as a back rest.

My Dad owned a Euro-bike dealership from '55 to '88, so I had access to all sorts of wonderful Eye-talon-eon goodies.
This sadly (only considering all the stuff that I SHOULD have) is the only one that I got to keep.......................



You're probably thinking.....what an asshole! Moaning because all he's got is a stinking MV! Well, to give you a little inkling of what WAS sitting in the garage, and had to be sold....
'74 Ducati 750 SS !
900 NCR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:eek 1
'73 Guzzi V7 Sport
125 OHC Ducati
Ducati 200 Elite
BRAND NEW Spanish Ducati 250 & 350 (orange paint jobs)
This stuff all went before the prices on this kind of stuff went thru the roof. So, no, my Mom didn't get rich off the sales
And my own bikes that I sold over the years...
'80 900 SS
''73 750 Sport Ducati
'66 Ducati MKIII

But, at least I still have the MV! I un-crated this bike at the tender age of 16, and been drooling all over it ever since.
