“I rode my Du­cati Mul­tistrada to Bologna last year to go on a fac­tory tour and visit the mu­seum, it was my first proper Eu­ro­pean trip and a bril­liant ex­pe­ri­ence. The fac­tory tour was ex­cel­lent, how­ever spend­ing a few hours in the mu­seum was cer­tainly the high­light. The mu­seum is fan­tas­tic and the pho­tos you can see on the in­ter­net don’t do it jus­tice. It’s a won­der­fully de­signed build­ing, re­ally well set out and ob­vi­ously has had a huge amount of time and money in­vested in it. They have a great col­lec­tion of bikes rang­ing from his­toric road bike to ma­chines that I re­mem­ber cheer­ing on from the grand­stands of race tracks such as Foggy’s 916, Hodg­son’s 999 and Stoner’s Mo­toGP bike. And you can stand right next to them, which is re­ally un­usual in a mu­seum. I loved go­ing to the mu­seum and I’m plan­ning to ride my Speed Triple to Hinck­ley to do the Tri­umph Vis­i­tor Ex­pe­ri­ence next sum­mer, which I hope is as good. I’d rec­om­mend the Du­cati Mu­seum to any­one and it is re­ally easy to com­bine with a hol­i­day.”
