Posts Tagged ‘Ducati Boyz’

The Ducati Superbikes immediately strike you with a no-nonsense attitude.  Performance is first and foremost in every detail.

I’ve made a few motorcycle trips with the “Ducati Boyz” in past years.  It was like the classic children’s book of the Tortoise and the Hare. The “Duc’s” would zoom by us cruisers, but our persistence and patience would win out on long trips as we’d soon meet up with the fast paced Superbikes taking a break to unfold their bodies from the racing frame…often with a lot less speeding tickets!

Recently Ducati Motor Holding shareholders approved a plan to merge with majority owner Performance Motorcycle.  In what I find somewhat ironic is that one of the three new main shareholders of Ducati is the Hospitals of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP).  It’s a pension plan for Ontario’s healthcare community where half of the trustees are appointed by the Ontario Hospital Association (OHA). 

Maybe we’ll see a new motorcycle bundling program.  A Ducati Monster 1100s with healthcare insurance…?
