To take part in the Ducati Dream Tour you
must be in possession of a valid motorcycle licence issued in one of the member
countries of the European Union. Those in possession of licences from countries
outside of the EU should arrange to get an international licence that is
recognised in Italy.
We strongly advise bike Tour participants
to wear the correct kit, consisting of technical textile clothing, a full-face
helmet, gloves and boots.
The organisation offers participants the
opportunity to hire technical clothing (in a limited quantity) that can be
booked via the website at the time of booking the tour.
NB: when checking-in in Bologna you will be
asked for your credit card details in case of any fines or sanctions that will
be charged to the person renting the bike.
Bike rental: the bikes used on the tour are
insured against public liability, theft and fire. They are not covered by fully
comprehensive insurance for damage to the vehicles. On taking possession of the
bike, at the time of collection the client will sign a waiver and present a
current motorcycle licence that is valid in Italy.
