What we're about


We the Chicago Ducati Riders (CDR) is officially part of the International and Exclusive DUCATI Desmo Owners Club (DOC) recognized and supported by Ducati Italy and Ducati USA.

We are a Not-For-Profit Corporation with a mission to make a difference in our community by being a good example to other riders, promoting road safety/"Wear your Gear" advocate and help others who are in need - organizing fundraisers, various events and encourage charitable giving to our members.

We are proud DUCATISTAS and would like to share our passion with other Ducati Owners/Motorcyclists in the greater Midwest.

CDR has regular Scheduled Rides; setting a meeting place and time with pre-planned destinations and riding in staggered formation following a leader who makes sure everyone is fully geared before every ride whether there are 2 or 20 riders.

We also have Motorcycle Meets twice a month - we meet up, hang out and enjoy the company of one another discussing our Ducati Motorcycles. These meets are open to other motorcyclists as well!

CDR supports Chicago Local charities as well! We just recently became partners with Gilda's Club Chicago.

The Chicago Ducati Riders Desmo Owners Club is a rapidly growing group and we are accepting membership applications from Ducatistas exclusively. https://photos3.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/b/1/0/a/event_422145322.jpeg

Motoworks Chicago is our sponsoring Ducati Dealership and we are grateful for the support we get from them.
