REGIONAL DIRECTORS - SOUTH ISLAND.

Nick Marer

NELSON DIRECTOR & DOC NELSON PRESIDENT

Nick Marer will never forget the day he heard his first Ducati. Lying in bed on a Saturday morning, he heard a rumbling getting louder and louder. He tore down the stairs to find Chris, his brother, home to visit on his 1987 750 F1.

At the age of 20, Nick had experienced his first encounter with bike lust – and it wouldn’t be his last.

Nick’s the President of DOC Nelson, and in conjunction with DOCNZ, he coordinates ride events and club nights in the Nelson area for DOC folks from all walks of life.

William aka Geoff

CANTERBURY RIDE DIRECTOR

Steeped in the motorcycle trade William, aka Geoff’s older brothers rode British Bikes and of course were always working on them around home, often taking him for rides which inspired his passion for all things motorcycling.

Geoff now rides his 2006 999s every chance he gets. It’s clocked up over 30000kms over the past two years since owning this spectacular model!

Since becoming a Ducati owner, Geoff admits that he finally understands the immense passion Ducatista have for the brand. He tells me “I truly have never owned a motorcycle I have enjoyed more”! 

Join Geoff on regular rides in and around Canterbury

Kelly Jenkins

CANTERBURY MEET DIRECTOR

This bike mad enthusiast only got her license in December 2018! Before that Kelly loved the thrill of corners while riding pillion on her fiancée’s Ducati 750 and 900ss Supersports. After MUCH coaxing from him she finally took the plunge and got her license.

Kelly's current stead, the new Ducati Monster Plus 937, has already clocked 9000kms in the first 3 months. Riding all-year-round, Kelly has now amassed a whopping 69,000kms in just over three years and hasn’t looked back!

While her passion lies mainly in road riding - you can often find Kelly at Ruapuna and Levels race tracks. And also started racing her latest buy, a Ninja 250. To upskill (when she finds the time!) Kelly has also added a dirt bike to the collection!

Keen to share her enthusiasm for two wheels and to spread her addiction, Kelly hosts our monthly DOCNZ Meet in Christchurch

Chris Ferguson

OTAGO CLUB DIRECTOR

Heavily influenced by his older brother, Chris first met with motorbikes in 1984 at the age of 16.

He has enjoyed many bike rallies, including 15 Brass Monkeys and several Cold Kiwis, all while riding to or from Dunedin. Chris recalls the coldest Brass Monkey in the early 90s, when it got down to -18°C (yes, you read that right – MINUS 18°C) and a foot of snow at the campsite!

Chris entered the Italian market with his first Ducati after locating a low-mileage 2007 Monster S2R 800 in Dunedin. The deal was done.

On fine weekends he can be seen (and definitely heard) around Dunedin and surrounding areas. The pulse of a fine Italian motorcycle underneath him, and the wind in his hair. Catch up with him at the next ride or club meeting.
