Special Report: Motogiro Australia

Special Report: Motogiro Australia | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

Australia as we all know is a long way from anywhere else, and has been a hot bed of interest in Italian motorcycles even before Troy and Casey came on the scene. Once the flush of youthful racing has past, many of  those enthusiasts of older Italian machinery would want to do something fun with their bikes. One option is to pack them up and send them on the long journey to their homeland to compete in events there. A simpler option would be to have an event in Australia, alas without all the fine Italian food and wine!!

After literally years of being asked when would the US have it's own Motogiro d'Italia they finally built it and I, like just about everybody else I knew, was signed up and ready to ride. Conducted under the umbrella of The MEET at Monterey which included a bike show, an auction, the Motogiro America and the RedBull MotoGP at Laguna Seca, there was lots to do and see. The route included the start on Cannery Row, a lap of Laguna Seca, then down thru Big Sur to Paso Robles and back to Monterey. The whole thing kicked off with a bike show in the Monterey Custom House Plaza, and while the headliners were pristine restorations from noted collectors, many of the entries would be heading out the following day for the 5 day ride.
