$25 and you might be riding a Bayliss 1098R!

$25 and you might be riding a Bayliss 1098R! | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

Duc Pond Motorsports and Horsepower Charities are raising money for a few great causes and we like the way they are thinking. The raffle is for a limited edition Bayliss 1098R, a bike so rare that they only produced 500 WORLDWIDE. And for those that aren’t familiar with the Bayliss 1098R, it was a proper tribute for a true champion, not a “sticker kit” bike – the 1098R Bayliss was the real deal with all the good bits and pieces, and it’s beautiful to boot.

Canadian Chris Willenberg rides from Toronto to LA  on a Ducati 996 to raise diabetes awareness | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

Davisville Village area resident Chris Willenberg is hopping on his trusty motorcycle and taking an international journey to help battle diabetes.

Willenberg grew up in a family where diabetes is frighteningly prevalent. On July 1, he will embark on a trip from Toronto to Los Angeles on his 2001 Ducati 996 to raise awareness of the disease and collect funds for the Canadian Diabetes Association.

“There are a lot of causes out there to pick and choose from, but my sister’s a type 1 diabetic and has been for 38 years, since age four,” he said.

“Both my parents are type 2 diabetics and I have aunts and uncles who have diabetes as well.”

Ductalk.com | eBay auction raises $9518.72 for Dynamo Camp in Italy

Ductalk.com | eBay auction raises $9518.72 for Dynamo Camp in Italy | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

Final Tally -  Rossi fairing - $5250e ($6851.56 USD), Hayden fairing - $2810e ($3667.16 USD)


Raising a total of $9518.72 for Dynamo Camp, the first summer camp in Italy specifically for children with serious or chronic illnesses in post-hospitalization convalescence. The camp hosts children from 7 to 16 who live in Italy, although they plan to open the camp to children from other European nations as well in the future. Every year more than 10,000 young Italians contract serious and chronic illnesses. These children are forced  to spend long periods in the hospital. The conditions of which not only oblige them to deal with fear, fatigue, and often side effects, but also limit their social life with children their own age. Dynamo Camp is the light at the end of the tunnel for these kids. Nice job Ducatista's!
