So I've had my new bike about a month, Put 1800kms on her and am still in love with it!
I thought it was about time to post some pics as I've added a few mods.
It's my first Ducati, having come off a 2014 ZX-6R, The "Panigalina" as I call it is just such a blast to ride.

Congrats on the Ducati, have you thought about what modifications and accessories you'll want to add?
Aside from whats already on there. I've got a Zero gravity smoked double bubble screen on the way and a Ducabike clear clutch cover in anodized red. Also have some Evotech rad guards on the way. Aside from that I'm not really sure, take it as it comes I guess 0:)

I'm considering the smoked double bubble screen. Please post pictures when you get it and let us know how it affects the wind at high speeds.

How are you liking that comfort seat?
Its pretty good! It takes a bit of wearing in but once that happens its much nicer than stock.
It depends on how tall you are too, I'm a just shy of 6'1" with no boots so the extra height gives me more space, it also helps with the heat as its quite a bit thicker.
The material is also much nicer, more grippy and just looks better.

We are the same height, i think i might order it as well! Is this the one you ordered? A noob question for you, how important is it to install the radiator guards?

Yep that's the one!

Rad guards give you piece of mind. I know now that im covered against any pesky rocks looking to put holes in my bike. They cost me about $150 and that's cheap insurance considering the price of a new radiator. they're also handy at keeping insects out. A big bug easily bends fins.

I'm going to order the comfort seat. Last weekend after 2 back to back 250 mile days, my butt wasn't feeling too great. It's weird. When I went to the link that you posted, I saw the price for the Canadian site. But when I go to the following U.S. site, it doesn't show a price:

It looked like it was $271 Canadian on the Canadian site.

I found it on Ducati Omaha. But it's $252 U.S. there (which is a lot more Canadian):
Ducati Performance Rider Comfort Seat | 96797110B

I'm thinking that maybe I should just order it from the Canadian Ducati site?...

As far as i know, you won't be able to order it from the Canadian website with a US address. Is the seat really that bad?
