Char­ity ride guide is so snobby

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Comment -

Look­ing through my Twit­ter feed to­day, I read a post from Charley Boor­man ex­tolling the idea of be­ing in­volved with the @Gentl­menss­ride. I thought it sounded like a fun idea. Click­ing though the we­blink, I found a ride in my home city then, you have to regis­ter to get full de­tails. I then found out that your ride has to fit in the style guide ‘with gen­tle­folk rid­ing their Café Racer, Bob­ber, Clas­sic, Tracker, Scram­bler, Old School Chop­per, Mod­ern Clas­sic, Side­car, Clas­sic Scooter, Brat-styled mo­tor­cy­cles’. So as I ‘only’ have a mod­ern KTM I can­not take part and raise funds for prostate can­cer. Since when did bik­ing be­come so snobby? Gary Bick­ley, email
