    (Another?) Hello from Australia

    Hey all,
    How's it going? I've had my MTS950 for a couple of months - purchased as ex-demo with the enduro kit already on it. I've since added SW-Motech hard panniers, Ducati small carbon-fibre front shield (because the standard one I find makes it hot to ride, and has a lot of wind buffering for me), ducabike water pump protector and handlebar 'sliders', and R&G front and back axle sliders.
    Oh, and the Akrapovic slip-ons, which didn't really make the bike sound any different but they look good.
    Cool bananas
    Cheers

    Your bike does sound cool bananas. Please share some photos of the beast.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone!

    Here's some pictures of my bike. Sorry I can't send any sunshine over! It was about 28 Degrees C when these were taken. The following day got to 40, but I had already returned home by that stage.
    I put the OEM screen back on for these photos - this is a ride I just completed to test out my camping gear a little bit. The campsite is a place called Mambray Creek in the Mount Remarkable National Park, about 250kms North of where I live.

    Anyway, cheers guys, I'll have a beer for you :)

    Can't really see the point of an after marker exhaust as the standard one sounds fantastic above 5k revs

    Hi Xtourer,
    This is all I have handy picture-wise


    I don't notice much difference to the sound - but it is much lighter than the stock one and (I think) looks better. Can it be justified using facts alone? Probably not, it's more a heart decision I think.

    Short video featuring the sound (gear changes could be better  :001:). Go Pro was behind the screen, sorry about the bugs lol
