I personally wanted Paulie to do me a Musolini tribute Duc.........Il Duce or something like that, they could do the gearbox so it had 6 reverse speeds
What a great response Eric!We have not had anyone come in yet for custom parts, but we have been busy.
Since we opened we have been getting great feedback from all who have visited us, sold bikes to really good people, have had people come in to get their bikes repaired/worked on. One gentleman actually called us up on Sunday because he had a puncture on the radiator on his 08' 848 and needed something done by this Wednesday because he paid for a ride on Thursday. We did all we could and got a new radiator on his bike and ready to roll in 1 day. Needless to say the customer is very happy.
This last weekend we had our first ride with a local Ducati owners group which went great. I had the chance to ride the "Spider" Monster 1100 the whole day and all the work done on that bike really made it a blast to ride. The rear sets where a little racy, but I was kind of used to it from my R6 track bike. But yeah...the bike ripped. Everyone on the ride had a good time, and when we got back to the dealership we watched the Mugello round of MotoGP which turned out to be a great race.
All in all...it is great to have such a strong brand like Ducati here. We are 100% committed to making this a strong dealership and also a great place to come meet up with other riders.
If anyone wants to check out some pics of the dealership and the last ride check out our new Facebook page:
All the best,

Thanks Paul! It was great riding with you as well. You were hustling that ST3 around like a mad man! Awesome skills indeed.It was fun riding with you Eric, that Monster could get up and go
I am as guilty of the occasional typo as the next guy, especially when typing passionately, but honestly, before you choose to dump on another's style choices, and thereby seek to set yourself up as a judge of what is "good" or "bad," keep an eye on your spelling first. Honestly, your computer should indicate possible misspelled words before you hit the "Submit Reply" button.I'm sorry you had to ride that thing around. I know your East, I'm West.... My eyes are bleeding buy what you did to that Monster. Sorry, you seem like a good sport, so please don't take my comments to heart. Monsters are a great bike, with a base to do endless moding to. I just don't get the rear tail. Looks like a trunk for a helmet!
PLEASE... take your R&D and look to find new produts that make the bikes run better, faster, and longer and for cheaper! Less focus on what crap you can bolt on this bike. There is enough "bolt on" stuff and less then 5% is actually performance.
Performance.... perfromance... perfromance= GOOD
Paint... bolt on.... more paint.... chrome.... more bolt on.... custom leather stiched seats= BAD
I'll be keeping my eye on you guys.
Oh man, people have been customizing Monsters since they came out! What's the big deal!??!? I love that Monster "Spider"! It's way cool!!! Even Ducati makes Monster "specials" once in a while... Ducati isn't all about going faster or what ever. They've long since realized it's Style and Fashion also.
