Manigale Madness Indeed (video)

Over a year ago, while working at MotoCorsa, I wanted to get into creating beautiful Ducati content to share on the web, rather than regurgitating the same things everyone else posted. That’s where the seDUCATIve photoshoot with Kylie Shea Lewellen came from- Arun Sharma (General Manager) and I decided that we should hit the internet with 1199 Panigale desktop wallpaper photos of a beautiful woman on a bike- but do it first and do it better. After the shots made their rounds they had rather positive response, but of course there were some who couldn’t see the fact that we classed up the regular girl on bike photos a little bit. So, as we’re talking about it, Arun says, “Wouldn’t it be hilarious to do a parody with the guys?”

TerraCorsa: 1199 Panigale Adventure Bike

MotoCorsa is doing some rad stuff. If you don’t already know, I’m no longer working there. Not since last December- but that’s not the point. The point is my friend Taylor Ramsauer (Garage 6) is working on a lot of their projects now. He did a killer video and photoshoot with TerraCorsa- a Ducati 1199 Panigale with knobbies and other mods from Quentin Wilson and MotoCorsa.

When I saw Quentin Wilson post a photo of the project he was working on I almost choked on my coffee- a Ducati 1199 Panigale set up for adventure riding. Q is just crazy enough to do this kind of thing, get muddy, have fun, and smile for days after… so I was more than excited to see the outcome. 

Well, a couple weeks later here’s a great shot from Arun Sharma of the knobby-sporting TerraCorsa all muddy and used. See more photos on MotoCorsa.com of this genius madness.

Fun at MotoCorsa trackday today- I stopped by for a bit to say hello to everyone. Ended up riding the minibike around the pits in my super safe shoes and rockin’ Spectre Apparel Triumph tee. Meanwhile Chris cooled down after Marshall sessions with a nice wet face towel.

I can’t tell you how many times people asked about that shirt in India. It arrived the day before I left and I was so stoked to have it. That photo is taken after my 23 hour flight at 12:30 AM. My lil bro was so excited he couldn’t wait till the next day to go riding so we had Delhi roads to ourselves at Midnight! Have I told you I love my shirt? Thank you!

Ladies- there is literally one hour left to pre-order/pledge for this tshirt at the $15 price. After that it’s $20.  Intro price is over, but you can still help get them printed! Shipping included for a total of $20!
It’s my design, and it won’t get printed unless we pre-sell 75 of ‘em. 
So go over to the MotoCorsa FB shop and snag one!

What happens when you put a bunch of bikers with a warped sense of humor in a Ducati shop together? You get the one-of-a-kind, often-imitated-never-duplicated MotoCorsa family. This photoshoot is a good example of the lengths we’ll go for our customers… even if it’s to make them laugh, cry, and/or want to vomit. ;)

To all the people who are sick and tired of seeing bikini clad babes draped over bikes… this is for you. I can only tell you how lucky I feel to work with this group of dudes. 

Make sure you go check out all the 1199 MANigale photos on the MotoCorsa website.

Photography by yours truly, MotoLady!

Hi, quick question, you maybe able to help me. I am searching for a Ducati SportsClassic front hub, or a hub that could allocate a double front SportsClassic rotors pair. Do you know were I could ask for this part? Thanks in advance. Great blog, btw. Keep it coming! — Asked by Anonymous

Since I don’t know the answer to this I would a) call a Ducati dealership (MotoCorsa- the one I work at is awesome…. 503.292.7488) or b) Have someone fabricate one for you.

Hope that helps… sorry I don’t know more. Oh and thanks for the compliment! :)

Okay POST SCRIPT: Hey douchebag who wrote me an anonymous msg- “Fabricate a hub? lol yeah right." I’m fuckin’ tired and I read it wrong so give me a break.
