One week to go until The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. Launched six years ago by ThrottleRoll founder Mark Hawa, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride has become a staple of the custom bike event calendar. The blend of dapper gentlefolk (that’s men and women) with custom/classic bikes, coupled with raising money for male health causes, has proved to be a combination for success.

DGR – Bigger Than Ever
