As I said before, Ducati has been following along. And when the trip ended, they called. Apparently Gabriele Del Torchio, (Ducati CEO), asked the PR Manager for North America (Tim Collins), to get in touch with me, which he did via Aaron Klink, the Sales Manager of Newport Beach Ducati.
Tim said that Ducati Italy was “amazed” by the trip--and to show their appreciation, they're flying me out to the Circuit of the Americas next month for the launch of the 1199R. I'll get to meet Mr. Del Torchio himself, along with the head engineer behind the Panigale. Ben Spies and Nicky Hayden will be there, too—along with more 1199Rs than you can shake a conrod at.
Very excited. Ducati rocks.
That's awesome and you deserve it. All the free advertising Ducati has been getting has made them a few dollars I am sure. Your 'Coast to Coast' has been the best advertising campaign they have had! Please take more pics of your trip and have fun. -Steve
