THIS IS AN OBSERVATION...IT IS NOT MEANT TO PERSONALLY OFFEND ANYONE.

My experience with several Ducati clubs that I have joined (3 out of 5) is that they are primarily populated by middle aged, fairly well to do males of average riding ability that form cliques within the club. In several cases, erroneous (and dangerous) maintenance information was espoused by self-proclaimed "experts", and any advise to the contrary was shunned or ignored. Some seem far more interested in the bikes versus the riders themselves (interesting, since the riders join the club, not the bikes). Thus, I have or will discontinue membership in all but two of the clubs, as the benefits to me in the other three are non-existant.

So the question is...what is your opinion? Are Ducati clubs just like any other club? Are they different because the average age and income level might be higher? Comments please!
