Membership Process

No Comments »

Tonight we made a few changes!

First, we've created a Membership Form that asks a few more optional questions and puts you right into our membership database.  If you already signed up, have no fear, we added you to the same database.  Note that we still welcome the additional information such as your phone number, riding skill level, and emergency contact information.  You are welcome to email this information to us or give it to us at the next event.

Second, we've uploaded our Liability Waiver which MUST be signed by everyone that wants to participate in the club.   You are welcome to print and sign it then email or mail it to us, or wait until your first event where we will have them on hand to sign.  This is standard stuff for participating in a sports club.  Safety is a top priority, more on that later.

And, GREAT NEWS, we have all of our events for the year planned!!  We have some things to finalize but we will have dates soon.  We know there are some of you that have a need for events NOW and we really want to make that happen.  Remember that, if it's nice out, and you want to ride with buddies, post in our Google Group! We'll try to make it happen!  You are also welcome to post right on Facebook.

Northern Ohio Ducati and Triumph
We are so excited to officially announce that Northern Ohio Ducati and Triumph will be our partner Ducati Store!  The owners and staff have extended support from the very beginning and we are extremely happy to be working with them!  In addition to already being a great dealership with TONS of Ducati merchandise in stock, they will also be providing use of their facilities, expertise, and have even offered to donate some goods and services.  Northern Ohio Ducati and Triumph can be found next to Chapel Hill Mall in Akron at:
1955 Brittain Road, Akron, OH 44310
and online at www.northernohioducatiandtriumph.com .


This relationship leads us one step closer to qualifying for official Desmo Owners Club status.  In less than one week, 19 of you have signed up for the Club and 30 of you follow us on Facebook.  We only need 31 more members to meet the requirement of 50 members, so please sign up if you haven't and tell your fellow Ducati enthusiasts to join today!  We would love to get our application to Ducati as soon as possible.

Besides meeting new friends, attending events, and being matched with riding buddies in your comfort/skill level, being a member of a DOC has awesome benefits:

"Becoming a member of an Official Club allows you to enjoy exclusive privileges and participate in a wide array of events organized by the club and by Ducati, the chance to live your Ducati passion through 360°.
The world of DOCs (Desmo Owners Clubs) is the most fulfilling way to enjoy the excitement you get from your Ducati.Through the official clubs, you'll meet people who share your Desmodromic passion and rest assured that wherever in the world your journey takes you, there'll always be a friend on hand to welcome you.
Since the year 2000, the number of clubs has been increasing steadily and the community continues to grow today. DOC members get special treatment at all Ducati events and can benefit from exclusive viewings during company and museum tours. As a Ducati club member you can also take part in all the club's organised events, such as bike meetings, track days, trips and lots more."


We have set a date for our Launch Party: Wednesday, April 17th, from 6-? at Northern Ohio Ducati and Triumph.  They will be providing pizza and we will have additional membership materials, planned event details, and maybe even a limited amount of Founding Member swag available.  We can't wait to meet you!
