so i ride just about every day in the rainy northwest, and while i promised GTrossi i would post pics of it installed, its just never clean enough for me to not be ashamed!:eek:

so we had a sunny couple days and i decided to wash and take a coupla pics:




first off: super easy install, professional look. big plus for me is that it isnt carbon fiber and actually looks like it belongs on this bike. it weathers the Seattle crap brilliantly. so 3 thumbs up on this product!

that said, i need to sharpie the double stick (its green) because it is a lot more visible than i thought after looking at these pics.

Looks real sharp and definitely goes well with the exhaust and other black parts of the bike. I'm curious about those belt covers - they sure look cool. Any issues with your belts and stuff being exposed like that?

thanks for the photos! - i'll eventually do the same - what do you think of the DP tail chop?
I love the DP solution... i looked at many different solutions and even started working on my own, but ultimately the DP solution was simple, elegant, easy and really nice looking maintaining the retro feel of the bike, so i went that way. the only thing it doesnt allow for (though its not really necessary) is routing for electrics for plate illumination. (the big red brake light illuminates enough as it turns out:D)

thanks, im happy with it. as far as the belts go... no problems at all. the belts are well enough away from pants etc. and common sense says not to be mucking around there while the engine is running. so if you like to clean your engine with it running then i wouldn't recommend this:D. also, neat little trick marty at Seattle Ducati told me about: paint a couple white dashes on the sides of your belts. when the engine is running that part of your bike comes alive! cheap white fingernail polish, about the cheapest bling mod available!

Does the license plate for the DP tail chop cover most of the spray on wet rides? I want my bike to look better, but I dont want to be covered in spray, dirt and grime.

Hey Bobby- bike looks good! 'Course, I might be partial to red...:)

Geoff's hugger is on my GT also. It's great, keeps the back of the engine and swingarm much nicer.

theres a price to pay for fashion:cool: but the plate does knock a fair amount of it down, but i do get some up on my cowl and back. not a horrible mud stripe but some.

heh yeah red is a great color... seems like i cant walk away from Seattle Ducati without something red:rolleyes:

the engine and swingarm are a hell of a lot nicer now for sure... and after this winter, i think i have put it through the test!
