For those who aren’t aware: the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is an annual motorcycle event held in the interest of fostering awareness for and raising money to support both prostate cancer research as well as men’s mental health. Since its founding in 2012, the DGR has gone from a niche weekend gathering to the largest organized ride in the world, raising some $27.45 million across 107 different countries.
In order to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, founder Mark Hawwa has teamed up with Triumph to build a one-off Thruxton 1200 RS. Designed and customized at the Triumph UK paint shop, it features a bespoke, two-tone tank done up with the ride’s crossed wrench and umbrella insignia. What’s more, the tail has been treated to some art deco-inspired gold DGR letting, an addition that looks the business whilst also celebrating the cause. And if that wasn’t enough — Hawwa and Triumph are giving the bike away to one lucky fundraiser. To be eligible for consideration, all entrants have to do is set up a personal profile, donate accordingly, and raise a minimum of $250. The winner will be announced on June 6th.
