Bummer! How's NH treating you? I'll check out DOCSD.. wonder if the DOCLA group is active as well..
Thanks for the info!
There are probably multiple owners clubs in LA. I'd bet that there is an Orange County Ducati Owners Club as well. Pick whichever suits you best.
Forums like this are good for information and some networking, and for making contacts if you're traveling somewhere.
But I've generally found that local DOCs are the best bet for actually meeting people, going riding, and local events.
I'm a member of at least 5 of them around the country.
NH is treating me well; my wife and I are glad we moved. It is kind of a bummer putting the bike away for 3 or 4 months each year, but it's worth it for a variety of reasons. Including the beautiful riding for the rest of the year. I'm actually riding more miles per year here -- in SoCal I generally rode between 10K and 12K miles per year; in NH it's varied between 10K and 18K miles per year.
1993 Ducati M900 Monster "Patina" (265,000 miles, killed by minivan 30Oct17) -- 1995 Ducati M900 (wife's bike) -- 1979 Vespa P200 (daughter's scoot) -- 1964 Vespa GS160 (160cc 2-stroke) -- 1962 Maicoletta scooter (275cc 2-stroke) -- 1960 Heinkel Tourist 103A1 scooter "Elroy" (175cc 4-stroke)
