Ducati SA hosted a ‘Family Day’ at Red Star Raceway on Sunday the 15th November. Fact is, Ducati owners have never had it so good. Ducati Mystery Tour, Octoberfest at World of Motorcycles and now Family Day. The events lined up for the riders of the Bullets from Bologna keep coming thick and fast. ‘Family Day’ was aptly named, because that is exactly what the team at Ducati SA are doing, building a family vibe around the iconic Italian brand. We took a cruise out to Red Star to hang with the guys and soak up the unique buzz.

The track was inundated with booming Duc’s of just about every description. V4 and V-Twin Panigale’s, Multistrada’s, Streetfighters, Scramblers and 998’s, plus a few sweet Monsters were circulating clockwise around Red Star. That is the beauty of the place. Reverse the direction and it becomes a totally different riding experience. Suffice to say that a damn good time was had by all. Here are a few snaps to illustrate the point.

My name is Dave Cilliers. I consider cars as four wheeled shopping baskets and only worth using as a last resort! For years bikes have been my primary transport. Racing, touring, commuting or just kicking up dust on African tracks, I have owned over 270 motorcycles and ridden millions of kilometres. I am happiest when sharing my passion for motorcycles with like minded people whilst traversing Africa in search of adventure.
