August Message for the Gateway Ducati Owners Group

August was a busy month for Ducatistas in the United States.  The end of July had MotoGP at Laguna Seca.  The early part of August had the Pikes Peak race where Multistradas demonstrated their excellence.  The final US event was held the weekend of the 18th, MotoGP at Indy.  One week after Indy, the MotoGP race at Brno in the Czech Republic was held.  Lots of racing for Ducati fans.

Activities for the Weekend of 8/25/2012

While the Gateway Ducati Owners Group has no official activities, Vito Sicola (our Vice President) is riding on the morning of 8/25/12.  The meeting point is the Shell Station/Circle K located on Lindberg Blvd, South of I-44.  Meet at 8AM, leave at 8:30AM.  This ride is Vito's ride and he is inviting people to join him.

On another topic, I did a Bixby ride today (8/24) and discovered that in a short amount of time, highway C will be have fresh oil and gravel.  Please ride carefully on that road.

The information for the ride on September 1, 2012 follows:

The ride starts at 8:00AM from the QT on route 109, south of I-44.

Joe Henderson, our Ride Captain, and Giorgio Tortora did a pre-ride and amended the route.  Here’s the revised route for September. Joe shortened it due to a pea gravel covered state hwy and it just seemed to take them awhile. The ride will be 62 miles each way, about 80-90 min each direction. Destination is Gerald, MO. We can plan a stop mid-way if the guys want.
