The International Motorcycle Show is in Novi, MI this weekend (1/5 - 1/7). Saw Ducati's semi when I drove by it today. I'm sure they'll have the 1098 there. Wonder if the Hypermotard will be displayed?

I went to the Long Beach show in Dec. The Hypermotard was there along with two of the 1098's- the Tricolore (for sure) and the "s". The Ducati representation was cool but minimal with about six cycles on display. Enjoy!

Do you mind if the pictures are from the San Mateo show? These are the same bikes that you'll see.

They let you sit on the 1098. There was a line all day long for that.


1098 S Tricolore.


Desmosedici RR.


Hypermotard prototype.


The Troy Bayliss World Superbike 999.


And be sure to have a look at the fastest motorcycle in the world:

yeah, thanks for the tip on discount. I'll for sure be there on Sat too, so I'll look for you guys.

BTW Pete, not to be too far off topic, but do you have a teenage son, cuz I think I ran into you at Best Buy there off 8 mile couple months ago when you had your S4 out. Not sure, but I chatted with the guy for a minute and though it might be you.

Yup I remember that. We'll have to get together and ride when the weather improves. Do you belong to Ducsunlimited? I just moved up here in june and haven't joined yet.

Just joined in Dec. Still haven't got info from them yet, but talked to a few at some events and they seem like a good bunch. They seem to do a bunch of track days and whatnot, so if you're into that, they can help. See you at the show on Sat.

I joined ducs unlimited in November but haven't gone to any events yet. Probably will stop by the booth they are sharing with Rosenau.

Yoda, you just joined too, sweet, we'll have to hook up for some rides this summer. I'll look for you at the show on Sat too.

Sounds good, especially since none of my friends ride. Although, my wife is set to take the MSF course this April and she already has a bike.

Hope to see you there.

Just got back from the show. Sorry I didn't run into Erik or Ryan but I did join Ducs Unlimited while I was there so I'm sure our paths will cross eventually. The Ducati display was pretty much the same as the pics that Scott posted so I won't waste space with repeats.
