Hey guys... I’d like to extend an invitation to this event. The Bay Area Ducati Riders group (BADR) is hosting a Dave Moss event at Lake Berryessa on 9 Nov, 9am to 2pm. Venue will be at Turtle Rock Cafe. I’m putting this together so I hope you guys come out and support it. This is a great way to get your suspension dialed in by world-renowned suspension specialist, Mr. Dave Moss and ride beautiful Lake Berryessa on the same day!

Thanks in Advance 😊

The cat is a genius. He can look at you, says do this, try that. I only saw him once, well worth getting near the guy. If you dont take advantage of this, you are plain stoopid.

That’s getting a little carried away. The guy is good at talking a lot and not saying much. Really, watch his vids. Yea, bike set up 101, but come on, World renowned. I don’t think so. :)

I first met Dave at Pro Italia at a suspension setup day they put on. Full disclosure, I'm no expert, but he was really helpful. He did a few quick adjustments, sent me up Angeles crest, and asked what I felt. He told me my monster had some limitations, but he wanted to get it to move evenly. Showed me the proper way to set sag (I was a bit off), and gave some more real good suggestions. I've since watched his videos, and have learned a lot. And I've heard nothing but good things aboot him from the guys that race on my track days.

So I guess you have to work harder at some things to gain a reputation. Like my grampa always said, " A guy has to build bridges his whole life to be known as a world class bridge builder. Grab one dick, and you're forever known as a dick grabber." Wise man, old grand pappy was. :D

Have you ever met Dave personally or had your bike’s suspension adjusted by him? I’ve known Dave now for about 12 years. He’s set up all my bikes for track and street. I think he’s pretty great at his craft...

I’m sure he knows what he’s talking about in the videos I’ve watched. The reason I’m sure is because it’s all basic set up knowledge that anyone who’s been around for a while already knows.

When I’m watching his stuff looking for help to learn how to take it to the next level I’m always disappointed in how this “world renowned” expert never really says anything above a beginners level. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I have the feeling he’s capable of teaching more than that, but what I’ve seen don’t do it.

Seriously I respect what he’s doing and his knowledge but from what I’ve seen “world renowned” is getting a bit carried away. :)

Lake Berryessa! Right on! I spent the first 16 years of my life going there during the summers (1960 to 1976). My grandparents actually lived year-round at Rancho Montecello resort. Piles upon piles of great memories there. I was deeply saddened when some California politicians closed the resorts during the last Administration's rule (something to do with saving every goddamed puddle of water .. some conservation nonsense).

Sugar Loaf.
The Marina.
Spanish Flats.
Rancho Monticello.
Moskowite Corners.

Damn ..... I wish we lived closer, I would SO love to show my wife that place (we've been married 40 years, she's never seen it). It was always so beautiful there. I really miss the place.

Sounds like you two are due for a road trip 😉

Dave set up my 916 at Thunderhill years ago. I had been chasing my tail trying to get it just right. It took one day with Dave at the track. Best $20.00 I ever spent. The bike was pushing the front and the rear tire was tearing before Dave set the suspension. I would go out for session, come back, give feedback and Dave would tweek it. Did that a few times and got the bike to feel just perfect. I never touched the settings after that.

It’s in my backyard and I feel very fortunate. Hope you and your wife can visit soon. This is my favorite time of the year. 🙂

Dave Moss set up my 1198 during a clinic at the communal shop on Treasure Island near SF. The guy knows his stuff, and his professional race team resume reflects it.

Dave's very chatty, enthusiastic, accessible, friendly and carries a high energy level. But its all genuine, based on love of the sport and his craft, and being a great people person - these were my strong takeaways after my personal interaction with him and observing his interactions with numerous others.

I highly recommend his work. The only other guy to touch my suspension was Stig Pettersen [sp?] in SoCal, who was later hired by Ohlins USA and shipped off to North Carolina or somewhere too far from me. Pure genius. Dave is in his league, I'd venture to say.
