Tiga Moto successfully organised their first-ever DGR KL 2018 (Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride Kuala Lumpur).
Over 600 riders registered for the ride where a wide range of modern classic machines convoyed from Dataran Merdeka to Muzium Negara.
The KL chapter also managed to donate a whopping 6,543 USD (around RM27,104).
It was a sight to behold as over 600 bikers and riders from all walks of life gathered at the heart of Kuala Lumpur yesterday afternoon for the annual DGR KL 2018 or Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride Kuala Lumpur 2018. Organised by Tiga Moto (the proprietor of Tiga Supply Company located at The Gasket Alley PJ), a fleet of modern classic machines made their way from Dataran Merdeka to Muzium Negara.
Dedicated to making things different this year for DGR KL 2018, the folks from Tiga Moto actually got the majority of participants to register AND donate for the ride. In total, the Kuala Lumpur chapter managed to collect an astounding 6,543 USD which translates to around RM27,104!
To make things slightly different from yesteryears, the ride was held in the late afternoon where it was less sunny with a hint of cooling wind. The convoy which consisted of a range of modern classic machines from timeless Vespas to modern-day Moto Guzzis made their way through major city streets which started from Jalan Raja Laut through Bukit Bintang and concluded at the National Museum.
Participants were welcomed with refreshments and most of them took the opportunity to dress up in their finest gear to showcase their love and support for such an event. Entertainment and awards were given out such as Mr. and Ms. DGR KL 2018 kept the event lively and happening before concluding.
Dedicated on making the ride even more memorable, Tiga Moto also hosted their second-ever The Union 2018 event where DGR participants can mingle in a more relaxed manner over good food, excellent music, and great vibes back at the Gasket Alley PJ.
Friends and compatriots took a sunset ride back to The Gasket Alley where even Kawasaki Motors Malaysia (KMSB) took the opportunity to preview their latest retro cafe racer machine, the 2018 Kawasaki Z900RS Cafe. The mean, green, retro machine can be seen in all its glory right in front of the Tiga Supply Company.
All in all, we can confidently say that this year’s DGR KL was a success considering the number of participants who joined in as well as the donation figure collected for a good cause. To quote the great Pele, “Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”
