Mental Health Matters: Rev Your Mind, Ducatisti! 🧠🏍️

Today is , and at we're not just about twisting throttles; we're also about taking care of our minds. πŸ§˜β€β™‚οΈ Riding isn't just a passion; it's therapy on two wheels!

CONGRATS to Mark Dixon who won the Aug monthly prize draw!!!
πŸ₯‡πŸŽ‰

Mark was stoked!!!
"Back when I was a teenager there was mostly British and a few Japanese bikes around. But, my neighbour had this bike that I had never seen before and it was a Ducati. It air brushed flames down the tank, sounded amazing and too me it was the coolest thing around.

Since then I’ve always wanted to own a Ducati and in 2019 I bought a 1997 M600 and now I’m onto my 4th Monster being the 937 SP.
Joining DocNZ was the best thing I could have done to continue my passion along with a bunch of other like-minded people.

This year was my 1st NDR and I had a great time and met so many people from all walks of life. Bring on Te Anau!! Thanks for the prize Techmoto and DOCNZ DOCNZ!!"

BIG THANKS TO TECHMOTO FOR DONATING AGREAT WORTH $50! ❀🏍
