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,

2015 15th Annual DESMO BBQ

The atmosphere was a bit subdued this year at DESMO Ducati Owner's Club.   I've gotten a few tickets over the past few weeks, and more than a few friends (or friends of friends) have had some motorcycle-related drama.

Stuart Parr Collection: Art of the Italian Two Wheel

If you've been following this blog, a few weeks back I noticed a bunch of amazing Italian bikes on display on Madison Avenue. and I've been drooling a bit every morning on my walk to work each morning.  


The "Art of the Italian Two Wheel", featuring classic GP MV Agustas, Ducatis (ranging from Darmahs to 750GTs to 860GT's to Imola 900SS's, to Ducati 750SS's to 750F1A's and more) to LaVerda's and even a custom MV Agusta Magni, is located at 285 Madison Avenue (and 40th Street) in Midtown Manhattan, and will open April 18th and run through July 18th, with a catalogue to be written by the great Ducati historian and writer Ian Falloon.  More information can be found at www.stuartparrcollection.com and www.artoftheitaliantwowheel.com.

Italian Motorcycle Classics Invade Madison Avenue

Antique Ducatis, MV Agustas and LaVerdas abound in Midtown

UPDATE: Exhibition is called "Art of the Italian Two Wheel" from the Stuart Parr Collection. The catalogue will be written by none other than Ian Falloon.

 I was walking to work this morning from Bryant Park east along 40th Street, when I caught sight of the unmistakable profile of an orange Ducati 750GT out of the corner of my eye inside a seemingly otherwise empty retail space along Madison Avenue.
