20th ANNUAL DUCKS FLY SOUTH DUCATI MOTORCYCLE RALLY



It’s that time again. The room has been booked, the holiday requests handed in and the car scheduled for a full service in preparation of our annual pilgrimage to the land of great riding roads. Our flight plan has us in Murphy NC late on Monday Sept. 14th. The rally is Friday 18th, thru to Sunday 20th however; we arrive early to enjoy the area, atmosphere and people. We’ll ride by day and party at night. We’ll do ShoeBooties Cafe at least once and some of our other favorite spots as time (and money) allow.
Yes, it’s a Ducati rally but all brands are welcome and you do not have to be an USDesmo member to join in the fun. (See the registration form.) We’ve had as many as three MV’s in past years. Plus a smattering of Aprilia’s, Moto Gazzi’s, Triumphs (old and new) and other makes too.

The bikes are loaded on the trailer and parked in the garage where they'll stay dry until we pull out Sunday morning. We expect to make it as far as Beckley WV by Sunday night and then pull into Murphy around supper time Monday. Hopefully we'll find sunny skies and perhaps a few of you too.

Back home again, just shy of 3600 kilometers round trip and about 1800 kilometers of riding. BIG grins all around despite getting nailed for 12 over in Virginia, dropping my bike on Friday and the wife throwing her back out causing her to sit out Friday and only do a short run on Saturday morning.
Andrew showed up just in time for Saturday’s ride. We had little time to talk but we’ll make up for that next year.

It wasn’t the biggest turn out for this rally but it was the most fun of all the ones we’ve attended with the best weather, EVER! Quite the variety of motorcycles and people too.







You guys in the south should really check out USDesmo. They do fantastic road rallies and low stress track days. (And I know many of you have or have had Ducatis so it's all good.)
