Distinguished Gentlemen's Motorcycle Charity Ride

Every year all over the world over 13,000 riders dress in their best and ride to raise money for prostate cancer research. This year the event came to SLO and I joined in. My goal was to raise $1000 but due to the generosity of my friends I raised over $1800! We gathered early Sunday morning and rode about 100 miles. We made several stops and when crowds gathered around to see gentlemen riding motorcycles we handed out cards about prostate health.... I am sure they were excited to get that.  We finished about noon in San Luis Obispo at the Side Car Restaurant.. fitting, huh? Made lots of new friends and my riding buddy Duane and I had another good adventure!

One of the goals of this event is to improve the "image" of motorcyclists so we dress in our Sunday best. I have to say I clean up well for a mechanic!

My motorcycling buddy Duane. We have ridden to the Arctic Circle together, down to almost Mexico City, and all over Europe and the UK but riding in my sidecar with me driving had to be his most daring adventure!

Duane, his wife Linda, and my wife Bonnie... The wives were discussing how much fun it is when we go away on motorcycle trips..... ;)
