The reason for getting these events started was to provide a fun, social atmosphere for Ducati owners, folks that want to become Ducati owners, and folks that don’t yet know that they want to become Ducati owners and people who are too poor (and/or sensible) to ever own Ducatis, to sit, eat, talk, walk around and look at other Ducatis. All brands and models of motorcycles are welcome, so please don’t be put off by the event name.
