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 three area rallies, two track days and two 2 day track weekends. More adventures are planned for the future. Please revisit this web site for more information on membership, the magazine, discounts with area dealers, rallies, track days, and other events to come. We always welcome like-minded riders, members and volunteers!

Official Desmo Owner's Club Registration and Benefits

US DESMO is an Official Desmo Owners Club and as such its members are entitled to any benefits offered from Ducati, both in the USA and the world. However, if you aren't a registered member you will not have access to any of it. In order to be registered you need to go to ducati.com and register as a member of US DESMO INC. (Be sure and specify US DESMO INC in the clubs list on the form, and include the US international code (001) in the phone number.)

You will need to create a ducati.com account to join the club. If you don't want to register it's up to you. You will still enjoy all the benefits of US DESMO, but you won"t have access to DOC benefits like these I have listed below which are just some of what is offered:
