Like Ferrari's Tifosi, Ducati brand enthusiasts tend to be deeply passionate loyalists whose love for the marque extends into a broader state of Italophilia. They're more likely to drink espresso than drip, dream of riding the Dolomites than the Dakotas, and have an affinity for the color red that far exceeds that of most Honda riders. So when Southern California Ducati dealer Bill Nation throws his annual Café Desmo ride-in bike show, it attracts the finest machines in the area. And given that Ducati reps consider this area to be their biggest footprint in the U.S. market, it's no wonder there's such a wonderful turnout. Alphabetically, brands entered in the show included Aprilia, Benelli, Bianchi, Bimota, Ceccoto, Ducati, Moto Guzzi, Moto Morini, Laverda, MV Agusta and Vespa.
