We represented the DGR and all of our sponsors last Sunday, May 23. The ride and event was a great success. No crashes, no near misses, no mechanical failures, smiles all around. The lads had a blast with laps of Barbers Motorsports track, and then into town.
So on behalf of Heath and Ian, and all the men we are trying to help survive health issues, THANK YOU for your generosity.
Pleased to say that son Heath Ross will be riding along with his brother Ian and me. Good riding distance apart of course! Pandemic friendly activity.
Big shout out to Gary M. with Iceomatic who cleared the tarmac for Heath to fly in from Denver for this event.
Heath has his eyes on the Ducati, and the road ahead.
Thanks to all who helped me hit the target goal. It keeps moving!
I really appreciate the very distinguished folks who have stepped up already. Here's just one reason why: I just heard my brother-in-law [in Australia] has early stages of prostate cancer. The family is hopeful that the reseach and services that this organisation that you have supported will help see him through these tough times.
You're all champions in my book.
Looking for more folks in my network to wear the Champion jersy. Please spread the word.
Last year during all the covid craziness, I chose to ride but not ask for donations. I know a lot of people are still suffering from the pandemic but as we see light at the end of the tunnel, my hope is that those who can donate will do so. Last year I told many of you to hold off until this year. Now is the time.
Our younger son Ian Ross is riding with me this year on his Svartpilen 401.
Of course I'm thrilled to have him along.
On Sunday the 23rd of May, I'm riding in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride with fellow men and women across the globe to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and men's mental health on behalf of Movember.
Men die on average 6 years earlier than women and for largely preventable reasons. The number of men that are suffering is growing, and we need to do something about that. So, before I press my tweed and polish my boots, I'm asking you to join me in raising funds and awareness for these causes by donating what you can for this meaningful cause and to help the men we love, live happier and healthier lives.
BRESCO is happy to donate to such a worthy cause. ride safe!
This donation is In Memory of James “Jasper” and Celia Ross to sponsor their son Neil Ross, and grandsons Heath and Ian Ross by the Reed Family. They were so dear to us.
