The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride “is all about dapper, classic bikes, laughter and men. It is a motorcycle ride that takes place in over 110 cities worldwide on the exact same day. In 2013 the money raised . . . will be split between charities that focus on Prostate Cancer research and awareness that showcase preventive procedures.” (From the website.)
Yesterday I joined several gentlemen and a few gentlewomen for the first annual Austin DGR. I never miss a chance to wear a fake distinguished mustache, and Evelyn (my yellow HD200) even caught the spirit by donning a black tie.
We met at Full English for an authentic English brekkie.
A few of the dapper gents.
And a few of the bikes.
Auntie Biketrash (or is that Uncle Biketrash?) would like to invite her dear readers, if they are so moved, to contribute a few quids to the health of our guys. If so, here is a link to the donation page for my mate, Lonnie the Lonster. Donations will be accepted for a few more days.
And who do you suppose won the award for most distinguished gentleman? The prize was an awesome t-shirt. In fact, I love the t-shirt so much, that if my left hand could pull in a clutch lever, tomorrow I’d accessorize with a Triumph Bonnie as soon as the doors open at Lonestar!
Here is a slideshow/video of our ride.
Peace on the Road!
