GA/Fl riders???

Hey,

I am new to this forum and just bought 916 from other forum member. Already have bike but first ducati.

Started looking on web for Ducati/european clubs/events in S. Georgia/ N. Florida area? No active communities found?

If I am wrong let me know.
If I am right .... then I would be willing and would like to form a list of all who would be interested to get together on a regular basis .... any bike welcome of course!

Only dedicated Ducati dealers close to me (Jacksonville, Florida) is in Ocala.
I will contact the Dealer and see if I can get them on board if interest exists.
Noticed on there website people giving remarks from S. Carolina to Tampa.

Also, two major concours events locally here annually that could be fun!

Thx,
Kyle

Thank you... I looked at that but really was trying to focus on consistent club type in N. Florida and a lot of those threads were dispersed and out dated.
If admin wants to they can moved the thread I'm good... trying to reach some that may not look in that area.

Thx,
Kyle

I haven't been there but I think there is a dealer in Tallahassee. It isn't ducati specific but they sold them last time I checked.

You may want to check some of the tracks up there. Sometimes they have a euro track day. If you don't see one in the near future, make one! I would come up to Jennings for that. What about RR?

Other than that I would think that Atlanta is you next bet for a quality ducati meetup unless you come south to Tampa or Miami. Miami has a bunch of euro/Ital meetups with cars and bikes. That is a trek for you though.

Good luck.

I'd be interested in a meet-up, maybe St. Augustine, or Ormond beach. Jacksonville is kinda a trek for me. Also a meet-up and ride from Melilli on Saturdays would be cool.

regardless of the distance, sabastian at mellimoto is the place to go. great people there. mellimoto also does track days at jennings
as i have found, there are plenty of ducatistas in florida, but they seem to be spread out.
