This year, Malaysia will be adding another landmark city, Johor Bahru, as part of the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR) charity drive, which will be spearheaded by local brass metal craftsman Muhammed Khairul Neezal Razali from Leftee Works.
He will also be rallying riders from Johor and Singapore to join the ride there, along with Team Art of Speed.
The Penang edition will be jointly organised by Riders Garage and Rotten Motocycles, also with full support from Art of Speed Malaysia.
The convoy in Penang will take dapper riders on a tour around UNESCO Heritage City of Georgetown from morning to afternoon.
The ride is planned to push-off from a historical place, yet to be confirmed, and make stops at Heritage buildings for photos as well as to create awareness.
Motorcycle restoration and custom workshop Rotten Motorcycles founder Wan Zamani Ahmad will rally the call to action for motorcycle communities based in northern regions Perak, Kedah, Perlis and Penang to suit up and join the worldwide cause to bring awareness on prostate cancer & men’s mental health.
Meanwhile, Jeremy Leong from Riders Garage will be lending support through his management expertise to ensure this non-profit event runs smoothly.
Art of Speed Malaysia is also on board to assist with its event expertise and marketing strategies to maximise awareness about DGR, prostate cancer and men’s mental health.
