Ducati Bike Night Calendar!

The reason for getting these events started was to provide a fun, social atmosphere for Ducati owners, folks that want to become Ducati owners, and folks that don’t yet know that they want to become Ducati owners and people who are too poor (and/or sensible) to ever own Ducatis, to sit, eat, talk, walk around and look at other Ducatis. All brands and models of motorcycles are welcome, so please don’t be put off by the event name.

Nor Cal Short Track!

In 2014 the Ukiah Flat Track Series and the Prairie City Dirt Track Series merged to become Nor-Cal Short Track, operating a 9-race championship flat-track motorcycle racing series in Northern California. We are fortunate to have access to three exceptional 1/8th mile tracks on which to practice and to race.

The Nor-Cal Short Track mission is to encourage increased participation in the sport of flat track racing and nurture youth involvement. To those ends we have instituted a simple and cost effective set of rules and strive to keep the racing fun, family friendly, competitive, accessible and affordable.

Brian Bartlow’s Feel Like a Pro Dirt operates a fleet of Kawasaki KLX140 bikes for training and racer rental. Feel Like a Pro Dirt will be present at all of our 2014 races as well as offering rider training in Kelseyville California.

Brok McAllister’s Prairie City Dirt Track operates a fleet of Honda CRF150F & CRF230F bikes for training and racer rental at the Prairie City Dirt Track. Brok offers rider training at Prairie City year round as well as open practice most Sundays. Racer rentals will be available at our Prairie City race events in 2014.

Dudley Perkins Company, founded in 1914 by legendary hill climber Dud “Red” Perkins, turns 100 this year, and is preparing to celebrate its anniversary.

On September 13th the company, now in its third and fourth generations of ownership, will be hosting the Corey Way Street Fair, along with the California State HOG rally at the dealership’s location in South San Francisco.

The day will be filled with an antique motorcycle show, vendors, silent auction, food, and live music. The grand finale will be a New Years Eve themed dinner party and motorcycle fashion show featuring “A Century of Motorcycles,” as well as the then 2015 Harley-Davidson model line.

“We are looking forward to sharing our history with old and new friends alike–our customers and friends are the reason we are able to celebrate this historic milestone, we wouldn’t be here without them” say Tom and Janet Perkins.
