Ducati Trivia at Apulia with Rockwell Cycles

When Donny asked me to help promote Rockwell Cycle's trivia night in Hoboken a couple months ago, I was pretty pumped to participate.

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!


Riding a 1980 Ducati 900SD Darmah vs 1981 Moto Guzzi CX100 Le Mans

Last week I was down in PA, belatedly celebrating a bday, and my buddy Alex asked if I wanted to try riding a couple of his vintage Italian motorcycles.  Now I've long lusted after the 1980 Ducati 900SD Darmah and 1981 Moto Guzzi CX100 Le Mans that sat in his garage, so I grabbed my GoPro and headed over to Giegertown.

Ducatis Appreciated Not Required: Bike Night w/ Stuart Parr

Amazing ride last night with Stuart Parr to the Art of the Italian Two Wheel collection last night, who showed up on another MV Agusta 750S, and joined the DOCNYC and a few other Ducati enthusiasts on a spirited ride around Manhattan, before stopping off at the Ear Inn.

 I'll write up a better ride report shortly, but for now I'm packing to ride my 996 up to Montreal for the weekend.
