Not sure if you know about “The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride” or DGR in short or how you feel about it, but since 3 years, I’m a big supporter and participant with my “other bike”, the Bonneville T100 with sidecar.
My first one was in 2016 in Chicago and then 2017 and last year I participated in the much smaller and more family-style ride in Indianapolis, where my son lives who is riding - as in the past years - his 1973 BMW R75/5.
It’s all for a very good cause: Men’s mental health and prostate cancer research and last year for over 115,000 gentlefolks on classic and vintage bikes, in 648 cities in 101 countries, at precisely 11 AM local time, it was kickstand up and the rides began.
This year it’s Sunday, September 29 – same procedure as every year. 11 AM is kickstands up.
Here’s the link to the official 2018 DGR Global Wrap Up video with amazing pictures from last year’s rides from all over the world.
Worldwide we ride on the 29th.
