ducatitech.com

My main goal with my ducatitech website is to help people learn about their Ducati by sharing my experiences pertaining to maintence and what I have learned about many different aftermarket parts.

I started the pages on this website in 1995 because I realized from the beginning there is not a lot of helpful info available about Ducati motorcycles, neither on the Net nor at dealers. This site started life as a single page eight years ago containing only 2 pictures of my 900SS that I was *so* proud of! That was when you could go to yahoo and add entries... I created the Ducati motorcycles section and then added my first Ducati-related page on the net to a search engine.

After 2 or 3 years of describing mods to my own Ducati, I started getting requests to sell people the parts I was talking about and then shipping the parts to them. I never imagined Ducatitech and Ca Cycleworks would grow to become what they are now! Most of the parts described on this site can be bought from me via California Cycleworks, my on-line aftermarket parts business. You can read more about this story on the Ca Cycleworks about pages.

Thank you! to those who've emailed! It's nice to hear that there are so many of us who appreciate Ducati motorcycles.

The Aprilia RS250s have been sold

Sorry that nothing has changed on ducatitech.com in a long while -- all of my web development work has been thrown into Ca Cycleworks over the past 18 months. We implemented a Content Management System (CMS) there and have been making iterative updates to the code which runs the back-end, internal processes. Look for a change to ducatitech.com sometime in the future, as we will transition it to a CMS and abandon the hand written HTML files that are so 1996.

Be sure to check out the voodoo tmp directory as well as the sitemap navigation links I provide to the right. You never know what you'll find in the tmp directory! And the sitemap (or image sitemap) may help you find that webpage or image you thought you saw here in the past.
