    I regularly see cruiser riders on the side of the road near my house..... We live in the northern panhandle of WV, and lots of riders HAVE to stop an put their helmets on to ride through WV! Most of them could have ridden 30 minutes north and bypassed our state all together..

    Update to this; received a package in the mail today from the Ducati Owners Club (DOC) with 2 DOC T-shirts, 2 DOC neck protectors, 2 DOC wrist bands, an invitation to a club track day at SMSP with Troy Bayliss & Mike Jones & a really nice card.
    The fact they have gone to the trouble to look up our address & send this gift is awesome.
    We feel really special now.

    Great end to your story plocky.
    I always like to think there are more good people in the world than a-holes.
    Hope you can make the track day and show those Duc guys what an Aprilia goes like.
    Do not go gentle into that good night,

    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Unfortunately Sydney Motor Sport Park (AKA Eastern Creek Raceway, my old RC30 racing days stomping ground) is ~1200km NTh of here, plus an expensive boat ride across Bass Straight.
    So no; we won't be going.

    There was another part of the card that had a quote that summed up their attitude & appreciation.

    "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."- Helen Keller


    EDIT: rofl, just realised the track day invite/leaflet is from last year, so I would need a TARDIS to get to it anyway.
