New user nightmare


#1

Well… what a bloody faff to get to this point!
I would have thought the Ducati owners club web site would be slick like a well oiled machine, but no, my experience so far has just left me annoyed lol…
My reason for joining was to get a dating certificate for my 350 desmo restoration, I’d like to get it sorted before brexit incase everything goes tits up.
I’ve tried several of the email addresses to enquire about machine dating with no success, can anyone give me a working email address to help please? Cheers, Martin.

Hi Martin and welcome ,the bike looks stunning . I recently had a dating cert issued by Pete Ward ,he does it voluntarily so the length of time it takes to get one i would imagine depends on how busy he is ducarc@aol.com
the instructions on how to obtain one are https://www.docgb.org/machine-dating-age-verification-for-ducatis
theres also a FB age https://www.facebook.com/groups/108638249797/
Good luck dealing with the DVLA they are taking ages with my application Ive been trying since the end of August 2017

Hi, it is Pete that deals with machine dating, the DVLA seem to pttingbup hurdles all over, it is a nightmare, Pete will be on it but be prepared to wait.

Hi Martin,
I understand that you have now heard from Pete (he assures me that he’s emailed you).
I’m concerned though that you’ve not had replies from the email addresses for CoM members though, I thought that they were all working ok?
Cheers, Jilly

Hi Jilly. Yes I have had a reply from Pete, I appreciate that he is a busy man and doing this job as a volunteer.
I’ve had no response from anyone else, though I can’t remember who I emailed now lol…
hopefully I can get the dating letter sorted soon so I can get the bike registered in time for the spring.
Cheers, Martin.

Cheers, Jilly
