Any Ducati rider around Chicago?

I see this is not a very popular section but I was wondering if there are any Ducati meet ups around Chicago. I was told by the dealer that there is a club called D.O.C but it doesn't seem like they're very active. Anyway, I was just wondering if there are any of you out there that would like to meet up for a ride sometime.

I am about two hours south of you in the Champaign area, my in-laws live in Marseilles right on the river though. Some beautiful riding around there!!

I'm just SW of Chicago, DRILL (Ducati Riders of Illinois) is supposed to be a good club, the website is dead though, I hear everything is on Facebook (which I'm not on). Just picked up my Monster 797 in December, so not much riding in the current IL temps

I'm in the Chicago area and we have a lot of meet ups and organized rides with lots of Ducati owners. DRILL is the official Ducati Club for this area and most everything is communicated via email or Facebook. I'm also part of the Chicago Ducati Rdiers Group on Facebook and that is where almost all communications about rides and meet ups for that group happens.

There are also a few other Groups on Facebook where owners of other bike brands intermingle and larger meet-ups and rides are organized.

Chicagoland BMW S1000RR and S1000R Riders -

Ton Up Chicago -


Mods vs. Rockers Chicago -

This group is a bit more diverse, some like the group some don't but almost everyone keeps an eye on it

Ride Chi -

That should get you started

There is also a Sunday meet at the Full Moon on Rt 41 just south of Rt 137.

Usually a good Ducati turnout, many rides start from there.

Autobahn generally has good availability for track days if you are so inclined. I am by far the slowest guy around but still have a good time doing it! Moto Show in Rosemont is next weekend and there will be many sad Ducati guys there but a good way to break up the weather!
