G'day Ducati MOB,
Hi Joe !,
I am travelling to SF for a week and arrive on Friday 24th November. I have a colleague coming with me, who rides as well(not a monster, but he has owned a Pantah and 900SS in the past!). We're keen to go for a ride on Saturday and Sunday if possible. Looking for suggestions for places to ride, how to hire gear, etc., costs...or should we bring some gear over ? Gonna be any weather issues ?

Any DML regulars keen for a ride ?


Now don't flame me here Joe !! ;D but I will bring the video(d'oh, had to mention it) and the tank mount to record the events....

ps. joe, done all the video edits, now just adding the music and should have done and hosted this week ! What's that you say ? only 6 months later ?!! yeah, but I think it's not bad ! and I'll personally deliver you the DVD ! [thumbsup]

Sweeeeeeet. Now maybe the MOBers will actually believe me about riding in Australia :angel:

As I mentioned, the Superchicken is here for you to borrow. It's like Ian's Spada times four. I can also offer an XL textile jacket and an XL helmet, as well as a pair of gloves. I also have a tank-mount for the camera (fits either the Duc or the Chicken), so you can leave that piece at home if you want...just bring the camera.

I have a two XL jackets and two helmets that you guys are welcome to borrow (they came with my bike and I've yet to sell 'em). If the weather's good a ride would be great.

OK, great ! Given the XL sizes, I think Peter & I will bring our own riding gear. Thanks for the Superchicken offer...consider it taken !! [thumbsup] I'll have a look on the web for renting a bike for Peter. Oh, they will believe ! You are seen....although they may not believe what you rode! ;)

Thanks for the offer cloudseeker, but given the sizes, I think both of us are Mediums. We'll bring our own gear and pray for good weather ! Californian sunshine here we come....

I'll probably have family in town, so prolly can't ride. Which means that--if I get the stock exhaust back on by then--you're welcome to my tard.

Maybe Spidey can tell you about the time he crashed on a DML ride 5 minutes after giving the safety briefing ;D

So Ivan, it looks like you won't be riding the Superchicken after all. You'll be riding a 900SS instead:

...provided I get it registered and insured by then ;D

That 900 2V engine should be familiar for ya...but bring plenty of earplugs: the pipes on this thing will give you a headache quickly...and might even sterilize some people [laugh]

Yippee ! just so kno - my friggin boss decided to move my trip to SF out a week - as of last Friday. He copped so much flak from us, that he's put it back in place, so the 24th we arrive at 10am in SF. I'll give you a call Joe. I know that there were offers of a bike for my buddy Peter on the weekend, can anyone confirm ?
