    I am wondering if anyone has done a tail tidy that works for when you are using the OEM luggage. I have seen several iterations, but they seem to get dinged up by the bags. Also, I have a Termi exhaust that seems to point right at the "stalk" of the signal, so something that raises it up and out of the way is a must.

    I'm interested to know what you've done that is successful. Thoughts, ideas, and especially pics and links appreciated.

    Yes. The Ducati oem (carbon) one should. Do a google search on a Rizoma tidy as well, their parts seem to work well on Ducati bikes.

    Thanks - Rizoma seems to have some nice looking solutions.

    '12 owner here with the Ducati Performance carbon piece that @oalvarez

    It works great, no issue with the full Termi system and the bags. If you can find one.

    Mine the Ducati tail tidy and Rizoma signals.

    No issues with bag clearance.

    ......it WILL fill the release on your top case with crap though, so it can be fun to get the key back after a long ride in the rain.

    I have a 2010 MTS with a termi.

    I can't remember which tail tidy I bought long ago. However I do remember that if I put the turn signals in the tail tidy locations, they would clash with the bags or the top case brackets. I made some brackets out of thin aluminum plate, that basically relocated the turn signals down and towards the rear. If you mount your bags on to your bike, you'll see the turn signal cutouts. Just measure from there up to the tail tidy location, and make some brackets. I rattle can painted mine black. I also seem to remember that the top case brackets clash with the off the shelf turn signal relocator brackets.

    Here's two crappy cell phone pictures. If you look closely you can see the home made brackets. 5 minutes with some tin shears and you're all set. Takes longer for the paint to dry.
