Ducati Italy Moto GP Mugello (9SI1201)

Saturday, July 14, 2012 | Alan Magnoni | Europe

Hello out there and welcome to the BEST OF ITALY DUCATI TOUR with MOTO GP MUGELLO and plenty of sunshine! Today was our first riding day! Riders from 6 different countries: US, Aussie, Canada, Colombia, Tour Guide Marko from Germany and me from bella Italia are looking foreward to some very good riding around central Italy! We are going to explore 2 countries: the republic of Italy and the republic of San Marino, plus cruising trough 4 different regions: Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Umbria and Marche.

But before leaving the beautiful University city of Bologna with about 60.000 students we did a visit to the Ducati Museum and the Outlet Store in “Borgo Panigale”.

Check it out!!

Ducati fan but still Casey Stoner supporter: Greg Nagy from Australia! Let’s see how surprised he’ll be when “The Doctor” will win tomorrow …

But we stay realistic and enjoy the Museum …
