I went to the annual Festival of Italian Motorcycles in Melbourne, which has been held at Piazza Italia in Carlton for the last years. The Ducati Owners Club usually has a good presence there, and with perfect sunshine forecast for the entire day, I rode there on my Streetfighter.

As expected, Ducati had the largest presence, but there were plenty of other amazing bikes worth checking out.

What was a little bit disappointing was that many riders who put their bikes on display already left around lunch time. Officially the festival ran until 3pm, but by 1.30pm the piazza was nearly empty.
