Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2017 - Glasgow

Took part in the VERY wet DGR today in Glasgow. Despite the weather there was a very good turnout and I think everyone enjoyed themselves. I had to wear waterproofs over my suit, but my (non-motorcycling) boots and allegedly 'waterproof' gloves soaked through fairly quickly. I also wore an open face helmet for the first time since I was 17, and now know why - my face felt like it was being sandblasted when I was riding in the rain!

Despite the bad weather, I managed to take loads of photos, so here's the first selection of them. More photos and a more complete write up later.

We met up at the Fort Shopping Centre - yes, that's me!

We then made out way to George Square in the city centre. - Just look how wet it is!







We then headed to Triumph Glasgow's showroom at Hillington.

Some dapper chaps.

One of my favourites. This used to be a Yamaha XV750 Virago - looks a lot better now!

Is this yours, Shirley?

There was also a display by the classic Triumph car club


This dog was so friendly that I had to take its picture!


One of the charities we were raising money for.

My brother came to see the Ride and took a couple of photos of me (from his blog).

More later!

  1. Stylish, foolish, dapper, it all works. I wouldn't say foolish like your brother did, maybe just silly, but for a good cause.
