Awesome setup - I had a Ventura setup on my monster - it was ugly as sin, but it turned the anemic bike into a psuedo-tourerI obviously do not have a 2006 Mono with Zards, so my reply may not have value.
That said, I installed a Ventura setup on my 2007 GT1000 that is compatible with the Ducati panniers and related mounting rack. I have attached pictures here so you could view how it all fits together.
Apologies if I'm way off, but I figured it couldn't hurt to show. I have a large pack and the sport pack, which can be used separately or in tandem.
