DGR Top Tips
Pull out all the stops with the dress code, leave your inhibitions at home along with your Gore-tex. You may feel self conscious on the ride there but once in the pack you will revel in your glorious decadence. props help too, think; monocles, white silk scarves, pipes and pocket watches.
this event was created around the image of classic and custom bikes. retro is the theme, cafe racers, scramblers, bobbers, and classics. if it looks silly with a suit, it shouldn’t be there. If you do not possess a suitable steed, spectate and donate. Motorcycles from the current triumph line-up that can be ridden at the DGr are as follows: Street twin, Street cup, Street Scrambler, thruxton (all types), Bonneville Bobber, Bonneville t100 and t120 (all types).
The clue is in the title, this is a ride for Ladies and Gentlemen. adopt the manners of a bygone era, doff your helmet, bow politely, and leave your inner hooligan in their cage. the pace of the day is sedate and courteous so play along and enjoy the calmer side of biking.
Amidst the spectacle of ﬁne tailoring and desirable machinery lies the cause. the Distinguished Gentleman’s ride is this year hoping to raise over a million dollars worldwide for prostate cancer research, a cause that deserves every penny.
