Thanks for the input
We will give them a try
Ordered OEM Bull Bars
Thanks for the input
You mean the stock handlebars? If so, shoot, I bet almost everybody here has a bar they'd be willing to sell! I know I do.
Ducati calls the lower Motor Bars “Bull Bars”
Just in case it decides to take an unplanned nap
2019 Icon. Some mods but want to stay true to the intent of the original. Coming off an R1200GS and an F700GS, I WILL be riding the crap out of this off-road...nothing serious though. This bike is great.
Nice looking bike
Do the new Icons come with that nice metal side cover under the seat or did you add that?
Local Dealer's parts departmtnet left a message Saturday afternoon, at 3:30pm (they close at 4:00 are do not reopen till Tuedays) that the Motor Bars arrived.
Will get them Wednesday after work.
Installation to follow
that bag looks like a fender bender.
I'm thinking about adding a few gold anodized aluminum parts to my FT for a little more visual flash. Toying with the idea of a Ducabike headlight ring, frame plugs (they fill the holes in the frame "intersections," and a sprocket cover, all in gold anodized. I'm trying to decide if this would look good with the FT and its yellow accents, or just tacky. Thoughts?
The OEM Bull Bars (Motor bars) arrived
Looks like they were sourced from Toura Tech.

New tyres fitted, so a good excuse for a couple of snaps! Happy days!
Bike looks great in that setting! Where are those pics from and what exhaust is that?
Yeah it does look quite cool and it even looks clean! Shame it's let down by its owner being an old git!
Exhaust is a Scorpion Serket and the location is in Abruzzo, central Italy .
Nice pictures! Abbruzo is near the top of my list of places to visit.
Thanks. Abruzzo is well worth a visit and is a bit off the normal tourist trail so once you get away from the coast and bigger towns, traffic is normally light or non-existent and the scenery is beautiful.
Beautiful! Seriously, that's postcard material. I'm extremely jealous of your riding spot
Darn, here I was congratulating myself on the great ride I had through the Santa Cruz Mountains to the coast and back today, and now you have to post those photos! Aaaaaargh! And I must say, that is one beautiful riding spot! I'm jealous!
I finally have the Ohlins (Ohlinses?) sorted out to my liking. My take on them, as a lazy sot who enjoys goaty roads but never does track days or scrapes pegs on high-speed sweepers is
1) Ohlins is (Ohlinses are?) magnificent.
2) The spring rate I got ordering through Revzilla is good, but the sag seems a wee bit small for 150mm suspension travel and it may have been 5-10% stiffer than I really want. if I had a time machine, I'd go back and tell myself to tell them my weight was one notch lower. I might also tell myself some lottery numbers, but that's another matter
3) After a month or so of fiddling, riding the same stretch of road over and over, and taking notes, I ended up cranking the damping way down -- 18 clicks out on everything. This may be very slightly too soft, but the bike still handles well, doesn't dive when I grab too much brake (someone like me is always going to grab too much brake), and doesn't misbehave when the 'road surface' becomes more like a 'road interior', so then again, maybe it's spot on.
3) I ended up dropping the front tire pressure 2 lbs to to make the Expansion Joint From Hell -- my final test for combat-capable suspensions -- less hellish, so now I'm running 34 front 36 rear on the Pirelli MT-60s. This probably doesn't make any real difference, but it makes me feel cool, like I know what I'm doing, which surely must count for something!
Anyone have a link to installing the OEM Bull (Motor Bars)
