2018 Ducati World Presidents Meeting Day 3: Modena

Today's the day we finally go for a real ride, and we're going to be touring around Emilia Romagna and Modena, the home of Balsamic Vinegar I believe (and not a bad place to find Parmesean cheese, either. 


Museo Maserati: The Panini Motor Museum

If you ever have the chance to visit the countryside around Modena in Northern Italy, you'll find one of the most exquisite collection of Maserati cars collected from the last 100 years.  Nestled in one of the barns of a working family farm, you can get a tour of a Parmesan cheese factory, and experience one of the finest displays of antique cars, a collection so incredible it's been colloquially called "Museo Maserati." 

Parmesan cheese!

2018 Ducati World Presidents Meeting Day 1: Bologna

Today is the first day of the World Presidents Meeting.
I got off the plane from Casablanca, to be greeted by Lamborghinis at the Bologna Airport.
I didn't really know what to expect, but was hoping I had Wifi to call a cab to our hotel. 
Fortunately, I stumbled on a couple fellows with a "Ducati" emblazoned clipboard, and although I wasn't technically on the list,
ushered me into a pristine, new commuter van and took me half an hour down the road,
right by the Ducati factory in Borgo Panigale.

I wasn't really sure what to expect,
but I was ready for anything.
The hotel was called the HOTEL AMADEUS BOLOGNA
Indirizzo: Via Marco Emilio Lepido, 39, 40132 Bologna BO, Italia Telefono: +39 051 403040
And I didn't really know anyone.
But there were throngs of Ducati fanatics, that seemingly knew each other for years.
After picking up some intro materials, I was quickly offered a beer,
and introduced to the world's most passionate Ducatisti.
