Dapper Gentlefolk…….

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR) is a bit of an Annual Highlight.

That taking part in the ride, also contributes to a simply massive worldwide fundraising effort just adds to the joy. This year, for the second time, I hosted the Busselton WA DGR and I was keen to build on the success of the inaugural event…
