I'm doing my fourth Distinguished Gentleman's Ride this year. The past few years there has been some participation here, but many of the MV community are put off by the "style guide", which precludes newer scooters.
Now, management of the rides is different from city to city, and where I live (Boston) they don't follow the style guide at all, allow anyone who wants to raise money and ride to join in the fun. I've seen brand new sport bikes like Ninjas, newer Vespas (including a member here who rode a white LX150), Harley Baggers, and anything else you can think of.
I posted something about the ride when I first registered, but it was crickets... no responses. Oh well, still gonna ride.
Thanks for the response. I'm told hat as long as the bike has a vintage style, you're encouraged to ride in the San Antonio rally. This will be my first one (if I can make it home from our od town in time).
Ií Riding my 150 Super for the second year. Our local organiser strongly encourages classic style as we are a bit restricted for numbers at our start and finish venues. I donít imagine they would turn someone away on the day.
