    Exclamation The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

    Aloha!

    Every year in September, tens of thousands of distinguished gentlemen get together for the "Distinguished Gentleman's Ride".

    This is a motorcycle rally, but with a purpose and a theme. It is organized to raise awareness and money for men's prostate cancer research. Riders that participate (register) can be sponsored with all the money going to prostate cancer research.

    And here's the thing. It's all CLASSIC BIKES AND HIGH FASHION DRESS! You will NOT see choppers and sport bikes and leather. You will see suit and tie and pipes and cigars and CLASSIC bikes from the 50s-80s. I ride my classic 1982 Honda GL-500 Interstate. This ride is WORLDWIDE with hundreds of cities participating and tens of thousands of riders taking part. All for a VERY worthwhile cause.

    Check out the videos on youtube (just put in Distinguished Gentleman's Ride) or go to the website The 2017 Distinguished Gentleman's Ride for more information or to participate. You don't absolutely have to ride a classic bike, but that's the "spirit" of the ride. But dressing up like a gentleman is ESSENTIAL!

    Mahalo!

    Here is another PROMO video for the ride, and this one is "Shaving" based. Not a straight razor, but a Shavette. Still, interesting;

    What a curse be a dull razor; what a prideful comfort a sharp one

    Here is the one from Honolulu, Hawaii. This is the only one that was done with "Drones" in spots along the ride to give you a birdseye view of scenic Oahu, and is very professionally done. Enjoy;

    The date for this ride is fast approaching. The ride is connected to the Movember foundation as well. All for a great cause. To support men's prostate health and suicide. All profits (if you choose to sponsor someone riding or donate) go to the funding of these causes 100 percent.
