Hi All!

I am all-Italian bike kind of biker. Monster 796 was my first bike despite being told it is a non-beginner bike. I love it and learned so much on it in 3 seasons. It was a steep learning curve but worth it!

I am getting a Panigale 899 (it's in the workings now) to try a more sporty type of riding. I hope I made the right choice.

My track day experience is limited to one day only, but I try my best to use highway ramps and turns to practice what I learned.

I love speed. Adrenaline junkie to the core. But I am careful because of what we call reckless "Masshole" drivers.

I don't wear pink riding gear, but do make sure my ponytail is visible so drivers give me more space and are more respectful.

Any fellow Ducati riders from Boston: feel free to reach out for a ride, maybe not now, but in a couple of months!
