  • Denver, CO (1888PressRelease) April 01, 2010 - Pro rider Jake Wand will be doing a series of track days (by invitation only) to help experianced riders become more comfortable with their motocycles. Just so happens that one of the first track days will take place sometime in May and will feature the new Ducati Desmosedici 16RR that was used in the new movie "The Expendables" starring Jason Statham and Slyvester Stallone.

    "This Ducati is one of the most amazing bikes on the planet and the fact that it was used in the new movie "The Expendables" makes it even that more unique. There are only a handful of Ducati Desmosedici in the US" said Jake when asked about the bike. He would not disclose about how he came into possession of the bike. But we hear that it was actually owned by one of the stars in the movie (Jason Statham).

    Upon viewing the bike you can see that it is much different than just your average Ducati on the street. It also bears the movie logo on both sides of the bike. It truely is a site to see.

    While the track day is by invitation only we are told that the bike may be on display in other areas as well. You can check periodically at or to check for locations near you where the bike will be displayed.

    Jake Wand began his pro career at a very early age and has been in the extreme sports circle for almost a decade now. He is also very active in the music and music publishing buisness as well. But motorcyles seem to be his true passion.

    He often has track days to help both inexperianced riders and experianced riders become more confident on the street and the track. The Ducati is an example of how motorcyles have become super bikes for the street. Most street bikes put out well over 100 horse power and bikes like the Ducati Desmosedici is basically a GP bike that is street legal with 200 (plus) horse power. In layman terms it means that it is even more important for riders to become more familar with their motorcycles in a closed course safe enviroment like a track day. When you have a bike that goes in excess of 150 mph it helps to take certain measures to keep yourself as well as others safe. Jake has taken his expertise and knowledge to the track many times and now helps others learn the basics as well as help the experiance rider have more control and confident.
