"Desmo" is the club's bi-monthly informative magazine. It will keep you in touch with everything the self-respecting Ducati owner or enthusiast needs to know.
Desmo is currently edited by Jilly Penegar, who has been our editor on and off since Desmo 15, it's down to Jilly's Ducati knowledge, hard work and attention to detail that has seen Desmo improve over the years from the black & white photocopy to the full colour mag it is today.
Over the past couple of years, there’s been an increase in the number of people helping out with the content of ‘Desmo’ so if you want to contribute here's how:
