About the Author

Eduardo Cabrera, better know in the Spanish ducatisti community as Baron Rojo (Red Baron), was born in Madrid in 1972. Since his earliest memories, he has been passionate about motorcycles. He got his first bike in 2000: a Ducati 750 SS, and since then he’s only ridden Ducatis. With a natural inclination to all things mechanical, it was a breakdown of his 1988 Paso 750, just after a complete service by the dealer, that started his deep interest in the mechanics of that iconic Italian motorcycle. From a self-taught beginning, his fluency in English and French allowed him to further his knowledge in Ducati mechanics through foreign literature. It was in this way that a first rough draft of what would later become his Ultimate Ducati Desmo Manual started taking shape in a series of articles published online at www.ducatistas.com, the main Spanish DOC forum. Thanks to the contacts he made with respected specialists in the Ducati marque, he’s been able to gain a complete knowledge and the ability to perform the most complex repairs. Progress in this work, and his recognition by the ducatisti, finally resulted in the opening of his own Ducati specialist workshop in early 2016.
