This ride is open to all bikes. If you do not own an Italian bike, shame on you! Come anyway! Join the club and save on this and future events.

Friday evening registration and pizza and sodas are a great way to unwind from the ride in. Saturday morning find a group or just follow the map and directions on a scouted route. Meet at a pre-designated restaurant for lunch, and then head back on the return leg of the route. Saturday evening features a catered dinner and then lots of parking lot bench racing!

This is leaf peeper season and we have limited space at the Holiday Inn Express. Do not delay! You could be left out! Be sure to mention you are with US Desmo to get our special rate $99 standard and $109 suites + tax per night. Mail advance registration by September 8 and get a club memento. Make checks payable to: US DESMO, PO Box 615, Waxhaw, North Carolina 28173.

US DESMO rallies are three-day weekend events in scenic southeastern locations with great motorcycling roads! Some folks arrive early and ride Friday or even Thursday! Friday night is the time for catching up with old friends and making new ones. Saturday is the time for the mapped-out ride of about 250 miles. Pick a group or ride alone 'til lunch at a designated location. These are some of our favorite roads so don't tell just anybody. Saturday night features an Italian dinner with door prizes and more parking-lot bench racing.
