Here’s a screen-grab.
Along with Mutant Moto from last night, I just added Team Benzina. Be sure to check them out!
Here’s a nice Ducati Darmah from Greg’s Benzina photo archives!
Wow! Talk about craftsmenship! This stunner of a bike comes to us from Steffen Bühring of Germany.

Some pics from Berlin Germany.
This bike cost 3 month hard work, the weight is 180 kilo, 105HP, its look like a BMW, but it is an Ducati (because the frame is from a Duc!)
I speechless. What a great build!
From the for sale ad where I saw he bike. If you’re interested it can be found HERE
Forget the Multistrada here is Ducati’s first adventure bike. Built as a collaboration between the Ducati factory and the Swiss military to construct an all purpose, go anywhere bike. The changes that the Condor folks came up with were unique to this bike alone, too bad Ducati didn’t use any of the changes Condor did on the production singles of the day. For instance they used a spin on oil filter, something no Ducati single ever had. The engine is rubber mounted to the frame and there is also a rubber mounted head steady, the result is that the bike has a smoother ride and feel that the production singles. The brakes are larger diameter on the Condor and the rear wheel has a unique feature allowing the chain and rear sprocket to be kept in place when the rear wheel is removed. The tool kit is very BMW-like with a complete tool roll and tire pump, the saddlebags are removable and water resistant (not waterproof though) and, at least to me, the best feature on the bike is the dual rifle holders. No more tail gaiters for you!
This is just too strange. Autoblog called it the “Turducken of burnouts”… sounds about right!

BONHAMS TO SELL TWO EX-CARL FOGARTY DUCATI SUPERBIKES
Bonhams is delighted to offer for sale two Ducatis associated with four-time World Superbike Champion, Carl Fogarty, both of which are owned by the same private collector in Northern Ireland. The first is the Ducati 888 Corsa on which Carl won both the Superbike race and the headline event at the North West 200 in 1993, and which subsequently was campaigned by Michael Rutter in the British Superbike Championship. This historic machine was purchased by the current vendor in 2005 and has since been rebuilt by marque specialist John Hackett at Ducati Coventry. Estimate £26,000 – 30,000. The auction will take place at the International Motorcycle Show in Staffordshire on April 24th.
The 888 Corsa was reunited with Carl at the Ulster Grand Prix meeting in August 2009 where he rode the second of the two Ducatis on offer: the 1998 916SPS ‘Fogarty Replica’. This machine, the 2nd off the production line, was given to Carl by the Ducati factory and comes with two authenticating plaques, one of which states that the gift was in recognition of his ‘outstanding contribution to the success of Ducati’. The machine retains its original and most appropriate registration number: ‘S3 FOG’, Carl having won his 3rd Superbike Championship in 1998. Estimate £21,000 – 25,000.
“It is always exciting to offer machines with an iron cast provenance – and these two certainly don’t disappoint. They’re joining an already exciting line up of motorcycles, with our auction at the Mortons International Classic Motorcycle Show proving to be the place to sell an important motorcycle.”
