Unreal. Congrats, man! That's probably where I'd put phone/gps, too, but wasn't sure about the reduced visibility through the windscreen.

It’s really don’t blocked your visibility I like it a lot. I actually didn’t realized the turn by turn wasn’t working until I got home. Was out of town for a while so I’ll check with the dealership tomorrow.

I started another thread on the turn by turn a few weeks ago: Multi Media System - turn by turn activation

My dealer had to contact Ducati and they let them now we need to buy this to get the license activated, however it's not available in the US yet.

Looks good! I'm trying to decide if I want the AUX tanks. I like the look with it. But honestly I don't need that kind of range and they'd be empty probably 95% of the time.

I have a question for you on the auxiliary tank installation. When you take the passenger seat off the black bar underneath has two points on each side when things like racks can be attached. Does the auxiliary tank use any of those points to attach? I've seen pictures where it does not look like they are used. If so, how does the tank attach?

I have a few ideas on how to use those points if available with the auxiliary tank for attaching luggage attachment points (like the Kriega kits). The difficulty with the auxiliary tank is that you can't install any racks of any kind so you are limited to soft luggage (which is fine by me).

Thanks in advance for any help on this.

I don’t have the aux tank, but did you take a look at the assembly guide?

Thanks for the link! Looks like those attachment points on the black frame are not used by the tank which is great news.

Are there other documents listed at that link or elsewhere? When I try to modify the link I just get "access denied".

Thanks again.

Two questions for ya: what do you think of the aux lights? Do they illuminate at a level you were expecting? I was told they're not as bright as the aftermarket options, but I can't compare them. 2) what do you think of the rally seat for long rides, say 5-6 hours at a time? More or less comfortable than standard?

Sorry for a late reply. I’m attaching a few pictures to show that the aux fuel tank doesn’t use those points on the side of the frame. Hope the pictures will help you to visualize it better.
the fog lights are small but mighty in my opinion. I just came from a night ride and I enjoyed the amount of light coming out from them.
the rally seat feels like a motocross seat and I don’t think a 5-6 hours of ride will be of any pleasant at all.
this is just my personal opinion and maybe someone else think differently.

They need to make a version of the tank with the same basic dimensions but that functions as a small storage compartment. It's the perfect spot for something like that and helps finish the rear of the bike for those who don't need the extra fuel range.
