Was able to visit the home of Ducati on Friday in Bologna. Always dreamed of going and was lucky enough to have a day off there during my European tour. The factory was closed (labor dispute), so no activity, but we were able to walk through anyway. Every Ducati ever made was built here. Pretty impressive. And how many of you know that Ducati started out as an electronics company? I didn't.

Anyway, here's a photo of me on Caporossi's MotoGP bike.
(Note the sign behind me).

My thanks to Livio the curator of the Museo Ducati, for giving me (and the guys on the crew) the experience of a lifetime. Everyone should go, given the chance. Admission is free to all.

You win! That would be better than grabbing a hand full of Angelia Jolie boobs.

GuitarTech - That is a great pic! What did the riding position/ergonomics feel like?

Doc - I completely disagree, I'll take the boobs any day!!!

As I'm 5'7" and Cappy is even shorter, it was a little tight. And I don't think they were thinking of ergos in the design.
