How to Become a DesmoNorthwest (and DOC) Member

Updated 7/16/2015

OK, so you want to become a member of DesmoNorthwest (DNW)? Great, and it's easy to do! First, if you haven't yet registered on the DesmoNorthwest forum, please do so. Just click on the "register" link in the small yellow band running across the home page. Follow the instructions and fill out the online form.

By joining the forum you will become a welcomed member of DNW and have full posting rights on the forum. Don't forget to post an introduction! PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH OUR REGISTRATION PROCESS. Eventhough we are a relatively small forum, we unfortunately receive a lot of spam and malicious internet attacks. While we try to review the registration applications as quickly as possible, it sometimes may take up to 10 days before we can get through the process. Thank you for your understanding and patience!

After registering with DNW, you might also want to also register with Ducati to be a member of their Desmo Owners Club. To become a DOC member, continue reading below.

If you haven't already done so, go to http://ducati.com and register with Ducati as an owner (top/center of the web page). Please complete ALL sections of the registration process and answer ALL the questions. You are now registered with Ducati as a Ducati owner, but not yet as a member of a DOC.

Finally, please go to http://ducati.com/club/become_member/index.do?clubId=DOC000468 and request to be associated with a DOC, and specifically, DesmoNorthwest. In doing so, I will get notification that you wish to become associated with DNW and I"ll be able to complete your application process and make that happen. It's important that you include all the requested information: Name, email address, physical address, phone number, birthday, male or female, shirt size, and year & model of Ducati may all be required entries. This information will also help you receive timely yearly member welcome kits in the future. Please check both boxes giving Ducati permission to send you stuff.

If, for some reason, you are unable to complete the above steps, or your not sure that all the information was properly recorded, you can also do the following:

Complete (fully) everything on the pdf form attached below. It is a editable form which you can enter your data on. To fill out the pdf file, use the “sign, add text, or send a document for signature” button on the Adobe tool bar at the top of Adobe Reader, then select “add text” in the menu screen on the right side of the window. This allows you to type directly onto the form. Then save the form with your info on it. Adobe Reader is a free program you can download here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/

Email the completed form to: president@desmonorthwest.com

If you are unable to complete the form electronically or unable to email it, please print the form, fill it out pen and mail it to:

13707 S.E. 51st Place
Bellevue, WA 98006-3437

If you have any further questions or problems with the membership process, please send me a PM.

Thank you!
