Ducati draws holiday bikers to Yas Marina Circuit - The National

Ducati draws holiday bikers to Yas Marina Circuit - The National | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
The Ducati Riders Experience offers biker tourists the chance to merge hobby with holiday.

As the winter chill and gloom starts to set in to more northerly countries and snow takes hold on the ground, people's thoughts there tend to wander towards vacationing in more sunny climes; of lying on a beach, book in hand, the sun warming their bodies with the soft sound of rolling tides lapping the sand. Ahhh, bliss.
And some have other ideas of vacation bliss; some need a bit more adrenalin. And a lot more noise....

Vicki Smith for Ducati.net's insight:

First time the DRE was hosted outside of Europe and the first time the Ducati's rode the whole Yas circuit under the lights.

Well hopefully not. That Die Hard guy can TEAR UP some stuff, but with 285 original miles and currently at $3250. US  it's hard to go wrong. 

Here’s your chance to give and get at the same time, and feel pretty darned good about the whole deal. Charity fundraising website CharityBuzz, as part of it’s 12 Days of Giving campaign is working with Bruce Willis who has donated his personal 2005 Ducati Multistrada to raise money for the Boots Campaign and to show his appreciation for the US Military.

What this donor bike has is an old-school style Ducati frame – giving the flat upper line which, unlike most Ducatis, allows a proper cafe seat and tank, plus it has a rear loop already in place. Combine all this with a modern, reliable Ducati Dual Spark Motor (as per the Monster and Hypermotard) and up-to-date running gear with upside down forks and relatively light spoked wheels, with a wide rear rim that can accommodate a 180 tyre. In other words, old school ideas with new (ish) school thinking.

MidAmerica Rocks Vegas Motorcycle Auction | Motorcycle Classics | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
The wheels are in motion and the music is cued up for MidAmerica Auctions’ 22nd Annual Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction and Races on Jan. 10-12, 2013, at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.
Vicki Smith for Ducati.net's insight:

We have attended this series of auctions (in the past there have been as many as three going on during the three day event) and have found it to be an event above and beyond the auction itself.  Lots of great bikes to see (and buy) and plenty of other gearheads to meet up with, it's a pop-up museum of sorts. Add to the mix that it's scheduled during the big yearly electronics industry convention CES so the world's media is on hand, Vegas is hopping and the people watching is superb....

Ben Spies: when voodoo strikes | Motor Sport Magazine

Ben Spies: when voodoo strikes | Motor Sport Magazine | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
This is the time of year I usually indulge myself with a list of awards, handing out praise and criticism, perhaps bearing a grudge or two and exacting a little revenge here and there.

But this year I’m only going to hand out one award because I don’t think there’s ever been a more deserving winner of any award than this. It’s for the unluckiest rider of the year, and the winner is former factory Yamaha rider Ben Spies whose 2012 season was such a tale of unmitigated disaster that it was (ironically) round 13 before he even had an incident-free race. I’ve been working the GP trail for a quarter of a century and I’ve never known a rider suffer so badly, week in, week out.
