|My Royal Enfield and I are all dressed up with no where to go.|
No motorcycle on earth is more appropriate for a distinguished gentleman than a Royal Enfield motorcycle.
|"Bunty" is our role model.|
Organizers say it is "A day when cafe racers, bobbers, flat trackers, classics and retros across the globe unite. We ride the world for no reason, being distinguished."
Motorcyclists in communities from Cleveland, Ohio to Singapore have organized local rides. Check the Distinguished Gentlemans Ride website at this link to see what is planned near you.
It's all in good humor, as the ride's Facebook page describes it:
"Good will rise and shine again on the 30th across the globe. As we motorcyclists do, if you see someone, anyone, in distress, assist. Sadly, the general public is less likely to run away from us helping when we are not wearing leather and denim."
Returning to the choice of motorcycle for the ride, the website advises that "Unfortunately this is a specific event for cafe racers and similar styled bikes: retro, vintage, classic, modern classic, flat trackers, brat, street trackers, bobbers and yes we have opened it up to Vespas and Lambrettas."
As for the personal dress code: "think distinguished." The website strongly recommends suits. You shouldn't need your leathers.
"If you can not ride a motorcycle for a few hours without crashing, please do another activity," organizers suggest.
However, note that in the logo, Mr. Distinguished Gentleman wears his helmet.
The project started with the Sydney Cafe Racers (Perth, Melbourne, Newcastle, Brisbane) and was graciously extended to the world at large.
