The Ducatis of Hazzard

Ducati has been making motorcycles since 1946, when they weren't even motorcycles—they were bikes with little engines strapped to them. Today, Ducati, which is based in Bologna, Italy, is known as the premier maker of superbikes, which is short for bikes that haul ass. They also look cool, which is why they're so damn expensive. So if you're lucky enough to own one, you might want to cruise over to Motorsport Ranch in Cresson for Texas Ducati Track Days, where six-time National Ducati race champ Jeff Nash will teach you how to ride your bike "in a controlled and structured environment." The first track day of the season is Monday. Individual tickets are $200; a package deal for all the track dates is $999. For more information visit advancedmotorsports.com or call 817-790-0200.
