SUPER SHOW PICS – AND NOT JUST DUCATIS!
Well the first show of the season has come and gone. Didn’t get to go myself as I ended up taking care of a sick wife but hopefully the brownie points will put me in good stead down the road. Did read on ‘other’ forums that the deals on gear were not quite as good this year but such opinions always depend on what particular deal you were looking for. At least for the DOCC the reports are that it was a success with an amazing amount of interest shown in the club. Seems there was lots of talk about road rides and such so hopefully enough people are motivated to get the club growing in that directions after many years of quiet.
Extra thanks have to out to Robb LeFave and Dave Gooch for stepping into the breach when work commitments prevented our regular show coordinator Darren Webber from doing his normal juggling act. If you ever have the chance, slap these two on the back. The amount of work they do behind the scenes goes above and beyond. When you consider that Dave dragged 3 bikes all the way from Sarnia and had a crappy 5 hour drive home he gets the gold star. Robb is not far behind with 3 bikes all the way from Woodstock. We need to track down that rare bird the ‘Toronto Duck’ for next year!
FOR ALL OF YOU THAT DID PROVIDE BIKES THIS YEAR MANY MANY THANKS. WITHOUT YOU WE WOULD NOT HAVE A STAND.
Thanks to Jerry Nagy we have a few photos of the bikes on the stand. Seems Dave Gooche’s 900ss was a magnet for drawing people into the booth. This year’s bikes certainly showed a good cross section of the interests of the members that make up this club. While the club’s name may say Ducati what we really are just a group of people who love bikes regardless of where they originate or what niche they are for. I suspect for most of us that fact that they originate from Italy comes second.
