European Demo Day at Motorcycle Mall

 Motorcycle Mall has a yearly European demo day, where they let riders test-drive the new bikes.  Experience riders sign up, and Rich Gonello leads a little half hour tour around East Jersey.

I rode over to Jersey this morning to test ride some new Italian motorcycles.

I signed up to ride the 2015 Ducati Monster 1200S (the 1299 Panigale was booked),

 though I could have chosen from an 899, a Ducati Scrambler, a Hypermotard, the 821 Monster, the Moto Guzzi V7, a KTM SuperDuke 1290 and a few other bikes.

 A bunch of riders from the DOCNYC showed up, and we tooled around a bit after demoing the new motorcycles. 
 Motorcycle Mall has a number of cool bikes (I've never seen so many new Aprilias in one place), including a guy who was storing a number of late 80's / early 90's Suzuki race bikes,
 most of which looked like two strokes.
We eventually took off and went to get Dominican food, before returning to Brooklyn to attend Jane Motorcycles' Oil and Ink Expo
