The event was founded in 2012 and has gone from strength to strength - growing in popularity and raising more funds each year. Partnered with the Movember Foundation and sponsored by Triumph Motorcycles and Zenith Watches, this years ride was bigger than ever - with over 92,000 registered riders worldwide and a total of over £3,000,000 raised.
This year I participated in the Leeds DGR. Along with other members of Sportster Sickness UK, we joined another 200+ registered riders with a total raised of over £13,000.
The day is for a brilliant cause, but is also a lot of fun!
The tweed was out, the chrome was shining, the leather was creaking, the pipes were puffing and most of all - the smiles were beaming. There was even a monocle to be spotted (cheers for that Sean - gave me a proper chuckle!).
We certainly gave the folks of Leeds something to look at as we rode through!
Mega thanks to all the organisers and sponsors of the day for making it one to remember. Congratulations also due to SSUK's very own Brett Buckley for winning 'Most Dapper' in his pretty awesome Biggles outfit - you certainly looked the part mate!
