#tbt To that morning almost a thousand Distinguished Gentlemen and Ladies mobbed the streets of LA on motorcycles in the name of men's health research and finely tailored suiting.... Check out @gentlemansride to learn more about it.
Firstly, heart goes out to those in Las Vegas. It’s terrible that things like that continue to happen. It very well could have been me at that concert or many I know. Nowhere is safe from nut-jobs, and I hope none of my LV friends were there or harmed.
But on another note: I haven’t been posting or doing much the past week or so because I’ve been slapping together this DGRLA 2017 Video! It’s now live on my channel. Go watch it! Or don’t! Link is in my bio!
Although we spent my actual birthday getting tipsy on theraflu sweating out fevers on the couch together, we got to spend my pre-birthday being very distinguished gentlemen amongst 1,000 other riders for an incredible cause.
Lucky, as always, to have the best partner to ride through life with- in both flu-sickness and in health. Plus..look how handsome he is. #distinguishedgentlemansride#dgrla
Already counting down the days for next years amazing @gentlemansride. 📷@rambleonjesse
This might be one of my favorite photos I managed to snap from this year's Los Angeles Distinguished Gentleman's Ride. No heavy editing, no filters, just raw and pure. My good friend and fellow ride marshal @kotaisattaloss sat for an impromptu portrait during our after party festivities. The light and his expression capture a unique dichotomy we all face sometimes. Moments of darkness, perhaps lethal sadness, with only a glimmer of light shining upon us. It serves as a reminder to focus on that light as it can illuminate our better selves. Let it also be what you see in others to pull them up and give them strength. By teaming up with the @movember foundation, the @gentlemansride has expanded its scope beyond raising funds for prostate cancer research and also raising awareness for men's mental health and suicide prevention. These invisible diseases must be brought into the light and acknowledged. We are our brother's and sister's keeper and the first step is starting a conversation with those around you. We all have internal demons but we don't need to face them alone. 📸x @livemotofoto#gentlemansride#dgrla#dapperday#dgrla2017#suicideprevention#mentalhealthawareness#movemeber#portrait#realmen#awareness#azzarowanted
LA Traffic on a Tuesday 🏍...🚗🚐🚙
That moment when almost 100,000 motorcyclists start lining up, in almost 600 cities across the planet on the same day, to be the ones causing a traffic jam for a change.... and raise over $4 million for charity....
