    It's almost time again for the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride of 2013. Last year saw the very first edition and already had a massive following all over the world right from the start. I tried to beat the drum here in Thailand but apart from a few "yeah, cool", there was no real interest. I ended up riding by myself all dressed up in a suit. Silly? Maybe. Definitely more fun to ride in a group of like-minded lunatics.

    I'm not one to give up easily, so I'm here again to make you riders aware of this fun event and beat the drum. Maybe this year a few more are willing to join...

    Possible locations: Bangkok/Pattaya/Chonburi (Bang Saen)....just because it's where I live.
    Riders from Bangkok could ride South, people from Pattaya ride up North and we could all meet in Bang Saen for a beer or two.

    When: to be defined with the main organizers in Australia

    What to wear: you must look like a gentleman from days past and present. Be distinguished.

    There isn't supposed to be any commercial gain involved, just a simple and short ride in good company, dressed up as the gentlemen we really are.

    If you're interested, let me know and spread the news!

    Sounds like an event with a difference.
    Have you got any photos from last year to share - it would help the promo a lot.

    Mission
    To bring classic and cafe racers bike owners together around the world for a dapper of a ride.

    Description
    DGR is a worldwide event for owners or Customs, Café Racers, Bobbers, Flat Trackers, Retro’s, Classics and Quirky Motorcycles and their owners. It is an event that takes place all around the world on the exact same day. It is about motorcycles and dapper. We don’t care about work/social or life status for the one day we all ride the world together distinguished. This means Suits, Tuxedos, and Button up shirts, ties, bowties, top hats, canes, monocles, blazers, coats and all the rest of it!

    To take part you need to be in the correct attire. Be as creative or bland as you want. The most important thing is make others laugh, make yourself laugh and have fun along the way.
