Last weekend we attended our first “Cafe Desmo” at ProItalia. As long time Ducatisti we here at GearheadExchange have nothing but love for Pro Italia. They’ve been around 25 years (and this year’s Cafe Desmo show was a celebration of that anniversary) which is long enough for us to consider them one of the original members of Ducati’s “modern era” shops. ProItalia, along with Munroe Motors in San Francisco represent the “old guard” dealerships that have been selling, supporting, and servicing the brand since the days the company was owned by Cagiva. As new 900SS owners in the early 90s, Pro Italia’s instructional DVD taught us how to adjust the valves ourselves (it’s really not that hard, at least not on the 2v motors) and we appreciated their desire to educate owners about their motorcycles.
