Thanks, I just got her home! Very happy... Don't miss my Harley anymore, this will be great for trips. I only took it out for a little spin tonight, but extremely comfortable and love how it corners. Really surprised. This thing will be fun on the track too! Getting the top case and panniers in a few weeks.

I originally wanted a better bike for 2-up and weekend trips, but couldn't get past the blingy Pikes Peak for tooling around on and commuting. I'm looking into bags, but will probably go with the Ducati ones.

I'm stuck on the exhaust though. Was thinking of the full Termi, but not sure about the big Ti can it comes with and whether the passenger pegs or panniers will get in the way. I like the slip-on size better and it comes in CF! The other I'm looking at is the Akra Evo system. Really nice looking and good power gains, but expensive, need a PC and dyno tune. Decisions, decisions...
I have the full Termi. It comes with new passenger mounts and panniers mount perfectly. Oh and in sport mode, the bike will pull wheelies all day

Nice, just what I need! A touring wheelie machine...

I ended up going with the full termi, I appreciate the info on the pegs/bags. Any problem with the extended exhaust melting the pannier?

Haven't had the opportunity to put them on for a long ride as I am using it mainly as a traffic commuter. Splitting lanes as needed with the baggage could be terminal.

I will line the side facing the pipe with heat shielding tape in several layers just in case.

I traded in my HD fatboy on the MTS and haven't looked back either. My wife loves how much smoother the MTS is, and that means more opportunity to ride for us both.

Ok, here are few crappy ones for now. I'll post some better ones when I get a chance. I spent the day on the pani and tomorrow it's her turn. Man it's nice to have a weekend off!
