Club bikes – David’s Ducati ST2

David has been a club member for about 4 years and rides a Ducati ST2 1997 model (borderline classic!), David always wanted a Ducati since he took a test ride in the 70’s. She is fast, stylish and corners as if on rails.

David has been with Francesca for about 2 years and done about 4000 miles (original English import), the temperature gauge is in farenheit as well. David has done nothing except,service and polish and take the panniers off.


She doesn’t work well in traffic at low speeds and her electrics are a constant challenge, but David’s best rides are Grabouw and over the pass to Franschoek, because it is scenic, challenging and there is a good breakfast at the end.

David’s first bike was a Puch 50cc followed by an AJS 500 twin 1951 model which cured him of ever wanting to own another British bike. For some strange reason David has always wanted to own a Gold Wing.IMG_2590
