Fourteenth Annual DESMO Bar-B-Que

DESMO's Premier Event!

DESMO's biggest event of the year is scheduled for Sunday, August 17, 2014 at Thomas Bull Park in Hamptonburgh, NY (Orange County).

We have a private section reserved for us, complete with covered picnic tables, a softball diamond, a playground and a volleyball court. There is plenty of room for you, your bike, and your friends and family. Large and level parking lot for trailers.

Great Motorcycles
Awesome All You Can Eat BBQ Buffet
Door Prize Raffle
Good Friends

As always, we'll host our World Famous door prize raffle, with fantastic donations from our favorite sponsors. Expect gift certificates; trackdays; leather jackets, shirts and other apparel; parts and accessories; oils and cleaners; DVDs; and so much more! Bring your saddlebags and tailbags. Everyone gets one free door prize ticket, and everyone will go home with something.

This is your chance to meet and mingle with scores of DESMO members, talk about and show off your bikes in our bike show, brag about your trackday experiences, and check out the bling on everyone else's bike. And it’s a great way to share your passion with your family, too. The park is very kid-friendly, with lots of lawn and a nearby playground.

Ninth Annual Bike Show

In conjunction with the BBQ, we will host our Annual Ducati Bike Show. So, order that last minute bling, spit & polish your bike ‘til it shines, and get ready to show off your loved one(s).

Last year’s Bike Show classes included:
Best 4-Valve
Best 2-Valve
Best SportTourer
Best Naked
Best Vintage

We’re always surprised by the great bikes that come out to play—it’s literally a rolling timeline of Ducati history, including a rarely seen Ducati Brio scooter, which was on display last year. Unique trophies to each Best in Class. And as always, the winner of this year's Best of Show award will take home a very unique one-off trophy guaranteed to please. Additionally, the Stronzo, Pigpen, and the Bling Awards will be making their return with some new friends as well. Don’t worry-there’s a huge parking lot so there’s plenty of room for your trailer, if your wife, kids, and dog won’t fit comfortably with you on top of your bevel single.

To enter, register at the BBQ with your bike or pre-register by sending the following info to bikeshow@desmoducati.org
