Check out Gotham Ducati, NYC's first and only official Desmo Owners Club

Ducati San Francisco

Unbelieveably, in all of San Francisco, I'm staying about two blocks from Ducati San Francisco.  I've stayed for a couple of days in Portrero with a friend of my girlfriend, and then I'm crashing with a friend of a friend in the Mission, literally right down the street from Munroe Motors, the official Ducati shop in SF.

Dreamforce has been amazing, but after my third day of power-networking and partying, I'm ready for motorcycles, and I stopped off at Munroe Motors just to say hi.

A very friendly guy named Andy immediately came over, and we chatted about bikes and routes for my upcoming trip.
Andy and Patty confirmed some of the advice that I had gotten from friends, but said that if I hadn't ridden the West Coast before, there was nothing better I could to than ride up Route 1 as far as I could go, then come back down, and if I wanted to push it, Oregon was definitely within reach over four or five days.

 Of course I needed to pick up a t-shirt, and the guys wished me best of luck, now even more excited about the trip ahead.

Next: Day 1 San Francisco North along the Coast
