Distinguished Gentleman''s Ride 2015 Brisbane

Yesterday marked another edition of the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2015 Brisbane Edition. This was only the second one that I have attended with the first one being four years ago, and wow has it grown! With over 300 registered riders …I mean what's not to love about it, you get the rare opportunity to don a suit, and combine that with any excuse to talk and check out bikes it's a sure fire winner.


Yesterday marked another edition of the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2015 Brisbane Edition. This was only the second one that I have attended with the first one being four years ago, and wow has it grown! With over 300 registered riders and only signs in growing in popularity.

I mean what's not to love about it, you get the rare opportunity to don a suit, and combine that with any excuse to talk and check out bikes it's a sure fire winner. However the main purpose of these shenanigans was to raise awareness for men's prostate cancer, with all proceeds going towards the cause.

Oliver's Motorcycles hosted the event this year as they did last year, they did a great job catering for the crowd with free morning tea and a number of giveaways. They even supplied a backup vehicle to pick up any stragglers, I saw a number of riders breathe a sigh of relief after that detail was announced.

As the kickoff rolled closer the bikes started rolling in with such a large variety of vintage / custom and the more modern machines. It felt a lot like a show and shine wandering the rows of bike throughout the carpark.

11am came around and everyone fired up, kicked and some continued to kick their bikes into life. One kilometer of motorcycles headed down Ipswich road into the city in a somewhat orderly fashion. We regrouped at the base of the toowong roundabout for a while and then continued through Southbank and then to the Morrison.

Well done to the organisers of such a great event. Certainly there was a large amount of planning involved and from the outside looking in everything went to a tee.

Until next year gents...
