Full Circle


In Bangkok, 1972, the largest motorcycle you could buy here was a 125 cc, and most of us only came across Ducatis in magazine stories. (See the “Ducatista” story this website.) Now, in 2012, there are two Ducati factories here in Thailand, one of which assembles the Diavel, Ducati’s largest motorcycle. MaryAnn and I are in front of the Bangkok Ducati dealer, which is just a short hop away from the very hotel where I picked up my first copy of Cycle Magazine and began my 38-year journey with Ducatis, a journey that has now brought me back here, full circle.
