Scrambler Ducati Food Factory celebrates its first birthday
Opened precisely a year ago, the Scrambler Ducati Food Factory is Ducati Motor Holding’s personal resto-café in its own backyard, Bologna. The Land of Joy’s food experience is celebrating 12 months of serving customers authentic Italian cuisine amidst the Scramblers models.
The Scrambler atmosphere created together with Sviluppi Urbani, is housed in an old service station and serves Emilian-Romagnola culinary tradition and pays homage to the ‘60s and ’70s symbol of street culture, the Scrambler.
The Gettysburg Bike Week may not get the same amount of publicity as its counterpart in Sturgis, South Dakota. But rest assured, anybody who has been to the motorcycle rally in Pennsylvania will swear by its awesomeness.
Like most rallies, the Gettysburg Bike Week comes with no shortage of events. A look at its website shows a schedule of what you can expect from the July 9 to 12, 2015 rally. There’s going to be a swap meet, a motorcycle tour, concerts, and yes, even a wet t-shirt contest. Good times all around.
But the real highlight of the festival remains the bike build off, an annual tradition of the rally that calls on some of the best aftermarket builders in the country to build and design their own custom bikes. This year, the Gettysburg Bike Build Off will prominently feature three top-flight bike builders some of you may be familiar with: Vicious Cycles, Franklin Church Choppers, and Hellion Custom Cycles.
Unlike past years, all three custom bike shops will build their respective bikes ahead of time at their respective shops and then bring them to the festival where rallygoers can check them out in person.
There’s still no word on what kind of prize the winner is going to get, but if their past creations are any indication, these three custom bike shops will bring the pain at the Gettysburg Bike Week, making all those who see these three bikes up close the real winners of the festival.
