Are you a Distinguished Gentleman?
Sunday September 25th 2016 will see a world-wide formation of motorcycle riders dressed up in their finest clothing to take part in the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. This growing annual ride out is held in cities across the planet to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer research and suicide prevention.
Joining this year’s UK DGR events on their Harley® motorcycles will be men’s grooming goods specialist Captain Fawcett Ltd, better known as Richie Finney – a Harley fan through and through – and freelance journalist Jamie Hibbard. Main ambassadors for the ride include the Bike Shed’s Anthony ‘Dutch’ Van Someren, former 500GP racer Freddie Spencer and adventure traveller Charley Boorman. It’s also important to remember DGR is not just for men – TT and short circuit racer Maria Costello will be one of many female representatives taking part.
With the ride taking place, now is a good time to celebrate all things customisation, classic and retro! If you need help making your bike stand out there’s still time. Call in and talk to our Custom King or P&A staff to talk through some ideas.
