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

Ducati Paris on the Champs Elysees

 Ducati Paris is located directly on the Champs Elysees, one of the main thoroughfares and most beautiful avenues in all of Paris.  When you think of Paris, you probably think 1. Eiffel Tower, 2. the Triumphal Arch or Notre Dame, and 3. the Champs Elysees, and Ducati Paris has two out of three.

we had spent the morning in Versailles, and came back to the city limits of Paris to cruise around,
and make a quick stop at the local Ducati shop.
The Dianese store was right next door, and I was sure to grab a t-shirt for the memory, as I like to do when I visit various dealers (...I have a lot of t-shirts).
Ducati Paris had a Mike Hailwood replica MH900e right in front, and this is one of my favorite motorcycles, and one of the most beautiful Ducati motorcycles ever designed.
We hung out for a bit, but most of the salespeople were busy, so I didn't really get a chance to chat very much.

It was also getting somewhat late in the afternoon, so Caitlin and I were getting a bit hungry, with nothing but a long-forgotten crepe from earlier that morning. 
But I did snap a few pics,
and throw up some Gotham Ducati Desmo Owners Club stickers on the speed limit sign outside.
I know... Americans.
If I walk down the Champs D'Elysee just a little bit, you can see Napolean's Triumphal Arch.
