RULES

The competition is open to all ACTIVE Detroit Desmo members. A Detroit Desmo 2021 Rally Towel will be given to all members upon receipt of their 2021 DDOC dues. The towel must be visible (and readable) in the picture. Also, your motorcycle must be in the picture and visible enough to ensure you rode to the location. “Your motorcycle” means your personally owned motorcycle. No fair flying to a faraway location and renting a bike for the picture.

In cases where a ‘location’ is a particular street, bridge, river crossing; some official marking must be visible and readable in the picture. A picture of a motorcycle next to a river does not count, it must also include a sign CLEARLY MARKING THAT LOCATION. In cases where the description is “next to” the item, it must be visible in the picture along with your motorcycle and towel. If you ride with another DDOC OR non Detroit Desmo Ducati rider(s), all bikes need to be in the picture. Please note that some of the location markers may be behind fences or on private property.

Trespassing is strictly against the rules.
