Cafe Desmo: Ride the Crest 2010

Motorcycle Events

Pro Italia’s annual Cafe Desmo event will be held over this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Sign up to participate in the show and/or benefit ride…it’s something you will not want to miss.

The latest news on the show: PI’s Friday night cocktail party will benefit Riders for Health. This vital organization will raffle off some nifty items and will hold a silent auction for some snazzy bits from top-shelf manufacturers.

Erik Buell has also committed to offering some one-of-a-kind pieces for auction (a confirmed list of items from Erik is on Pro Italia’s Facebook page ). All for a good cause.

Also, Pro Italia says they’re feeling they need more women who ride (or want to ride) at Pro Italia, so join the East Side Moto Babes as they welcome author/photographer Christina Shook to Pro Italia for a book release and signing for "Chicks on Bikes" during Friday’s cocktail party! Admittance is free.

On Sunday morning show your bike! It is free and cool and may garner you a trophy and some fame. Register now.

Register now for Sunday afternoon’s benefit ride up to Newcomb’s Ranch. Any and all can attend the concert at Newcomb’s, but the sponsored ride, with its perks, is limited to only 200 (so Newcomb’s can plan the food and our moto-cop escort can manage the ride) with spots filling up quickly. All details and a registration form can be found on our Cafe Desmo page.
