No just kidding, I don't actually have the umbrella.


I reckon it depends. Do you ever talk to people? Do you like to get help from Coaches? Do you sit in your pit and bounce the bike off the rev limiter for no reason? Do you pull in the clutch and rev the shit out of it on your way to hot pit?

You can't always judge a book by its cover.

I went up to a fellow Ducati rider and asked him for advice about bike setup. All he did was brag about how hard it was to get into the expert classNd all the trick shit he had on his bike. He was a conceded dick! Not all of us are like this. I've made a great group of new like minded grip twisters at the track this season. Some times one bad apple spoils the whole bunch. The Ducati persona is a real thing, us friendly guys need to be good ambassadors and prove that we are not all tools.

Very good point. And I have never really understood the whole "Ducati persona" thing to be honest. I mean it is just a fucking bike. Harley riders are the same way.

I ride a Ducati, but I am not a "Ducati Rider". I only chose the 1299S over the R1 because my racing org has Twins classes, which makes the Ducs legal for more race classes than the I4's...and I like to race a lot.

The brand is irrelevant to me, I buy bikes for their capabilities.
Thanks from Prince Albert and 80shilling

I completely agree! I rode Kawasaki racing motocross because they had the best contingency program and I made $500 a weekend double classing. I got the Pani because of the power to weight ratio.

I was only joking. My trailer is grey. I do have the Ducati Corse Helmet though as you can see in my avatar pic. I have only been to the track a few times but usually find most people are pretty good to talk to.

I wish I had a SL and the suit to go with it.

thats actually funny- Because every track day I've done between 2-3 organizations almost every single time we get Middle east/ European people from Chicago that come down and do not listen worth a shit. They don't come to the AM meeting and the guys who run the track days literally have to force them to come over- holding the rest of us up. They act like complete idiots the entire time and act like they're pros- whilst they may be better than myself or others there theres a lot better rides than themselves there as well. Pretty much act like they can do whatever the hell they want and they're shit don't stink
