See if a ride is happening near you. Register, donate/sponsor if you can.

Dress up and ride for a good cause (Prostate Cancer funding and Men's Mental Health)

All Gentlefolk welcome. I signed up with my modern Vespa and I don't care if it's not vintage. I'm riding. Hope to see others post pics if you do go for a ride.

I'd love to see how this community supports, worldwide!

I'm riding too, my 4th year. I've seen everything from vintage Vespa to moped to 1938 BSA to Ninjas and Harley baggers. The Boston ride is open to anyone, they don't go by the "style guide".

Unfortunately we've all known some guy with prostate cancer, or a dude who committed suicide. I got both in my bowling league 3 years ago.

Awesomeness! There's a bit of tension as it's our Anniversary but acknowledging my mental health issues (Anxiety & Depression) last year and working on that. Also knowing a few who've committed suicide or been suicidal as well as a few survivors of Prostate cancer motivated me this year to ride.

Sorry for the loss to you and the League!

Ride safe and post photos please!

Anniversary? You'll be home in time for dinner.... that's looking at the bright side of things! Hopefully it's not too long a ride to/from the meeting point.

I'm hoping for warm weather on Sunday, as I picked out clothing that wouold work well in the heat. Last year it was a hot and steamy 85 and humid, so I ditched my 1970's style dinner jacket.

This year I got a nice asian styled kimono/smoking jacket (think Hugh Hefner style).

Will post a pic on Monday. As for Playboy bunnies, I don't think my wife would approve....

I ride solo....never really felt comfortable taking a passenger.

Ready for my second ride this year. Have raised sufficient to be in the top 10 here. Will be taking Bella the 150 Super. Over 200 bikes last year from a couple of 50cc scoots through to a Honda CBX and an Ariel square 4. The route looks good and the forecast okay. Got a choice of 3 dinner jackets, will have my clan tartan bow tie on as well. Renting a kilt was prohibitively expensive.
