IMOC 2017 34th Annual Italian Motorcycle Owners Club Rally

Looking back through my Google photos, and I can't believe I never posted pics from IMOC 2017.

I had missed last year, but had been to IMOC 2015 rally with the East Coast Ducs in 2015,

and to IMOC 2014 on my own, though I met up with a few friends from the Ducati Owners Club New York City.

 If you're not aware, the Italian Motorcycle Owners Club is a group of enthusiasts, largely Moto Guzzi and Ducati fans that has been meeting all the way back to the early 1980s.
And if you haven't been, IMOC is easily the
largest collection of vintage Italian bikes that come together in the Northeast.
Though it's dwindled in recent years,
there are some beautiful customs, like this GT1000,
as well as this classic Ducati Paso.
There are new Multistradas with custom wraps,
and revolutionary oldies, like this Ducati 999S.

As well as stalwarts like the 998.
One of my favorite bikes ever designed is the Ducati MH900e,
a Mike Hailwood replica built around 2000.
There are classic GTs
and Ducati Sports.
and 748s. 

$72,000 Superleggeras (at least when they were new).

and 900S Superlights.

The "original" superbike Ducati 851,
And an even earlier racer Cagiva/Ducati TTF1A

A classic beveled Ducati Darmah,
and the most beautiful bike ever built, the Ducati 916

There were some cool modded Ducs,
like this roundcase dual sport.
and many more
