Nice but look at the terms.

"The Desmosedici requires a motorcycle endorsement, a resume showing your riding history and experience level, a recent photograph of yourself standing next to your current motorcycle, a statement of net worth showing $100,000+ USD and a letter of recommendation from a reputable source (like a Ducati dealer). We only have one of these bikes coming in January and we don’t want anyone spoiling it for everyone else. You are not allowed to take the bike outside of California and you must make arrangements for proper security for the bike if you will be keeping it overnight. If the bike is stolen while in your possession, you will be liable for $75,000.

You must ride the bike on public streets and highways. Although, the temptation will be unbearable, you are not allowed to take the Desmosedici to the track where it belongs.


You must weigh less than 250 pounds fully suited up and you must be reasonably fit. Upon arrival, you will be asked to take a short ride-around on a ZX10 to demonstrate to us that you are familiar with riding a sport-bike.


The Desmosedici requires a $3,000 USD deposit on a credit card for static display or a $25,0000 USD deposit on a credit card or bond if you would like to have the experience of a lifetime. There will never be another bike like this."

Why would you want to rent something you (read "me) can't afford? When all is said and done with, you'll be kicking your bike over the next time you lay eyes on it.

Good point, but a bike like that can only be appreciated on the track, and even then you better have the skills or else. And as stated in the T&A, you can't take it to the track. So, IMHO, it would be a pain in the to ride on the street. As a result, when you get on your bike again, I would think that you'd appreciate the more usable power. Conisder this discussion:

the terms cut down that percentage of the population to about 10-15% of people who might be able to ride this thing, so the joe blow is def not going to get a chance on this beast.. and the face that they wont let you take it to a track is nuts... looks like the perfect setup for jimmy if he had the funds lol

No worries J-boogie, I think its funny how some people have a few more posts and a little more time on a public forum and think thats a license for nefarious banter.

Next time you go, ask him to teach you how to do the following:

Respectfully disagree with an opinion
Offer your opinion
As a result have a debate/discussion

For the record, most riders know that Cali has great streets to ride.
