And that’s just for starters!

The notwithstanding, Ducati is not normally a associated with getting off the hard. After all, dry clutches and a torquey, wheelie power delivery isn’t in the list of basic ingredients in the racing 101 handbook. For father and son Wayne and Todd Patterson lack of pedigree is no impediment.

It is perhaps even a challenge.
