Ducati Dyno Shootout at Daytona Bike Week '09
I clipped this from my club board, take a look. it'll be a fun event. I'd love to have some of you guys participate.
OK, guys, Tony and I have come up with the preliminary rules. The location of this event will be at Destination Daytona behind the Ducati dealership under the amphitheater on Thursday March 5th starting at 1:30 PM.
1. all 2 cylinder 2 valve up to 750 cc. Includes 600, 620, 695, 696, 750, 2 valve power plants.
2. all 2 cylinder 2 valve over 800 cc. Includes all 800, 900, 944, 1000DS, 1100 DS power plants
3. all 2 cylinder 4 valve under 1000 cc. Includes 748, 749, 888, 848, 916, 996, 998, 999 power plants
4. all 2 cylinder 4 valve over 1000 cc. Basically the 1098.
Power adders are not allowed in any class
Thats the line up as of right now for the Dyno contest. The bikes will have a combined score of the HP and torque.
I.E.- if a bike pulls 123 hp and 76 ft lbs it will receive a combined score of 99.5.
The sound contest will run simultaneously with the dyno run. We all know a Ducati should be under load for it to sound like a true Ducati. During each Dyno run a group of judges will have a score sheet numbered from 1-10. Each bike will be judged on who can produce the best authentic Ducati sound. I will pick judges that have an acute sense of hearing. Grin. I also want to let you know this contest will be held in the amphitheater, so it's going to sound frikin awesome.
This score will be added to the dyno score, so the contestant mentioned earlier so far has a score of 99.5 and he scored an 8 on the sound so he now has 107.5.
The last part will be the show. Also broken up into the following categories.
Best Monster 2V
Best Monster 4V
Best Touring which includes ST2, ST3, ST4, Multistrada
Best Sport Classic and Super Sport which will include, MH1, Sport Classics, and all Super Sports.
Best Super Bike this includes all from the 888 all the way to the 1098.
Best Race Bike. This class has to be strictly a race bike. No headlights, tail lights, or any other street parts. Cannot be street legal. Race numbers not necessary. Bikes with taped up lights will not qualify.
Each participant will get a score on several sections on the aesthetics of their machine to come up with an overall score that will be added to the other 2 scores from the previous events to come up with the grand total. That person will be given the best of show trophy.
The highest score from the other 3 events will also receive a trophy in their individual class.
So there it is, these are the preliminary rules and can change to accommodate everyone. I'm trying to make this as fun and fair as possible. We want to put on a great event and hopefully keep it going for years to come. I encourage everyone in the club and outside to sign up. Even if you are in doubt you will win, remember you have 4 chances. one in your class and if you score lower in one event but higher in another you might end up with the highest overall score.
You can enter as many bikes as you like, each bike you enter is a separate entree and fee. We have not come up with an registration fee yet. Depends what the dyno and trophies are going to cost. I will try to keep it as low as possible so more people can participate.
I know this is still 4 months away, but this is going to be the CDC's first real big event, so I want it to go as smooth as possible.

Why dont we show up in back of rumrunners and a have a penis contest, 2 balls with longest penis, 2 balls with the thickest penis, 4 balls with the longest and thickest penis. Or just take your bike for a ride and call it a day.

OK, so he's a bit overdone. But give the guy a break here.......after all there's plenty of ADV-inmates that go ogasmic over KTM's and BMW's, too.

Sounds like a good time.
Thanks for the heads-up and invite.
Just a little too far away for this far north Ducatisti.
Have fun, Mark H.

Cap - funny stuff but, I bet Motogp will think you are the biggest dick.
Give your self some time getting there - OBPD had traffic all messed up during biketoberfest. They try a different way each event to see how long they can make the bikes sit in traffic??????
Should I bring the KTM or the VMax?
