I'm too busy to organize but I'll add my name to the list for sure!!!

When adding your name, please copy this whole posting, paste to a new post, and then add your name to the bottom, so we continually have an updated list. Do Not just "quote" this list or it won't work. If you also add where you're coming from, it can help coordinate groups who might want to trailer together.
thanks!

now it's official and separated. Chuckracer has been nice enough to try and separate the east and west coast threads, although some posts have gotten lost. Please try to post on these two threads and continue adding ideas and attendees. In other words... do NOT post on the original thread titled: "what about a ducati.ms meetup? " thread

mospeada volunteered as an organizer, and moto (one of the sponsors) suggested a restaurant on the old thread. Now that it's all moved to this one... lets get all that wealth of knowledge and suggestions back on this one for the West Coast.

-MRY 999 Eryk (Eric L.) San Francisco & Monterey Bay


My reasons for picking SF/Monterey:
I travel between SF and Monterey almost every week and know the area very well. From Restaurants to roads to hotels. I can look into a group rate for a central Hotel in any location in-between.
Alice's up on Old La Honda is a famous bike hang out and all roads there are fantastic. Another option is a side trip to Hollister and Highway 25 which is a great ride in the spring. Big Sur coast road is another, you just can't beat the ocean roads and open space around here.
Track days at Laguna Seca, while nice are pricey at around $250+ and there are pipe restrictions, but it is an amazing track and one of the best (MotoGP). But if anyone would be interested I can look into it. Ducati North America is here in Cupertino as well, perhaps they could be approached for some involvement.
Another event to keep in mind is the Concourse d'elegance, which is at Pebble Beach in August. As of last year they began to include Ducati bikes at the Concourse Italiano event over at Quail lodge- I'll need to check on that. But I believe if you rode your bike in for display, you paid a reduced rate.
As I metioned earlier, even putting this event in around the same time as MotoGP in July brings in many more bikes to the area here and future "Prospects" to join our little gathering.
- Yeah, we'll need patches!

Anyone know a good place where I can rent a duc once I land in Cali... probably LAX. Don't want to be the doosh in the cage after setting this whole thing up :D

I'd sure like to do BOTH the East and West coast meetups, but I'm not going to have the vacation time this year. Maybe in a future year.

GP Motorcycles in San Diego rents Ducati's as well. See http://www.rentaducati.com/english/San-DiegoCA.aspx .


As much as I LOVE to ride, riding all the way from SD to SF is not going to happen with me on a Superbike! So I'll be the first to say I'm going to truck it/trailer it to the event, then ride all weekend and such. An 1198S is not quite as comfy as an ST3....

Alexio, you are welcome to come to San Diego, rent the Duc, and join me heading up.

I'm going to be throwing around all sorts of idea's. Scheduled rides per day, places to stay, ways to save money, and any and all your input is truly welcome. Ultimately, you guys will decide what will work best.

I'm really digging the Big Sur - San Francisco - Redwoods coastal area because it's almost essentially non-stop fun riding if planned out well. The last thing I want to do is for a bunch of us to ride the freeways for 3 hours! Even from San Diego all the way to SF, if I was going to ride, I would ride the coast all the way up!

One idea, for instance, is that whenever I go to San Francisco, I never stay at a hotel. I call up a bed and breakfast broker, and ask for a San Francisco flat, and actual apartment. Only a hair more expensive than a hotel room, but if I can find something with 2, maybe 3 bedrooms, that gives us a lot of room for us to stay there, even guys on a sleeping bag on the floor. The cheaper I can this, the better.

I am from the bay area, and agree that HWY 9/35 Alices restaurant would be a great ride. I have been there a many times and the roads are great. If anyone needs any info both the bay area let me know. I grew up in San Jose, and worked in SF for years.

I will be there.

I wish this would have happened sooner...by the time this meet happens, I'll be living in Honolulu, but if I can get the time off, I wouldn't mind flying out for the weekeend. I would need a bike though, maybe I can borrow one from one of you guys (it doesn't have to be a Duc)?

Maybe DesmoBob will come out too and we can reprazent da 808, da kine?
