A Club Called US DESMO

US DESMO is a gathering of rider enthusiasts whose common interest is to promote Italian motorcycles on the road and on the track, safely. The clubs initial efforts were in the Southeastern United States. There are now four area rallies. More adventures are planned for the future. Please revisit this web site for more information on membership, discounts with area dealers, rallies, and other events to come. We always welcome like-minded riders, members and volunteers!

USDESMO dues and renewals are now only $25 per calendar year. Join now!


Notes on 2022 Rallys

COVID-19 has had a big impact and our club is no exception. As a result we have modified how we run our rallies in an attempt to make everyone comfortable and safe. Traditional sign in and buffet dinners are for now a thing of the past.

When you check in at the hotel there will be a clipboard for you to sign the liability release. Please sign it. There will be a plastic tub with your rally information, door prize ticket, and memento item in a zip lock bag. Your name will be on it and they will be in alphabetical order by last name.

Friday's Pizza will be assorted 10 inch individual pizza. We will have four or five choices for preorder. We will have a table outside to pick up your meal to allow you to find a spot you are comfortable with the social distance and can enjoy your food.

Saturdays, no buffet buffet, the club will order individual meals. Like Friday you will have three preorder choices of the main course plus salad and desert that will be served outside.

The breakfast buffet varies by hotel. I am going to bring a few things of my own.

Lunch is up to you. I plan on bringing PB&J so I can carry lunch on the days I ride. I am sure we can get take out for those who have higher culinary standards. We may even be able to dine in.

There will be door prizes as usual. If the weather permits we will try to have it outdoors. As always we are open to suggestions on how to make this event as safe as possible.
