This one is pure MotoGP porn, the best that you can experience off the racing circuit. Patrick is one lucky British lad who owns this entire collection of MotoGP goodies, that include Casey Stoner’s 2008 Ducati Desmosedici, Kevin Schwantz’s 1995 Suzuki RGV500, Carlos Checa’s 2005 Ducati Desmo, Troy Bayliss’ 2003 Ducati Desmo as well as championship-winning factory Ducati SBK.
The 2008 Ducati Desmosedici is the very machine that Casey Stoner’s used to race at Donington Park and the incredible Laguna Seca. The 1995 Suzuki RGV500 is the very same two stroke mad machine that Schwantz rode during his final racing season before retiring from Grand Prix racing. The No.7 Ducati Desmo that Patrick has in his stable is the very same machine that Carlos Checa won the 2005 WSBK championship. Patrick mentions that the V-twin is quite wheelie happy and was quite scary when he acquired it with Checa’s racing setup.
Next up is one of the most iconic bikes in recent years of MotoGP for Ducati. Covered in Marlboro livery is Troy Bayliss’ 2003 Ducati Desmosedici, the very same bike which he rode for Ducati when the Italian brand re-entered premier class racing. Patrick mentions that the bike is an “conventional firing order screamer”, and absolutely incredible to ride, as it howls past 16k rpm.
Patrick’s MotoGP Motorcycle Collection is absolutely incredible, MotoGP porn to say the least. Watch the video below made by 44Teeth, who have a nice long chat with the man, while also getting a unique opportunity to fire all his machines one at a time. It’s absolutely incredible and the 27 minutes or so that you would spend watching the video will be well worth it.
