Helping men live happier, healthier, longer lives.

Men, we need to talk.

Globally, the rate of suicide is alarmingly high, particularly in men. Too many men are ‘toughing it out’, keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling in silence.

  • Henry Crew, London I have known more people that have died by suicide than any other cause of death. I have had issues with mental health since I was about fourteen. Most recently, I struggled to cope with stress and other issues in my life during my time at university. I was lucky enough to have a close-knit group of friends to look out for me, who understood and were going through similar, if not worse, situations themselves. Riding motorcycles has helped me stabilize my mental health and has been crucial in my wellbeing over the last few years. In 2018, I will be departing on a trip to become the youngest person to circumnavigate the world on a motorcycle. I couldn't think of a better partnership - a year on the machine that saved me while supporting a charity that will help save others. #movember #dgr #dgr17 #ridedapper #jointhegentry @henrycrew
  • Clark Hogan, LA In 1985 when I was 10 years old, my dad bought a 1974 Norton 850 Commando from a classified ad. We rode it all over. I vividly remember the smells and the sensations of temperature change as we travelled down long empty roads. My dad was diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer 2 months after my mom had passed away from a 7-year battle with ovarian cancer. This time was fleeting and every day he got worse. I felt so many emotions, rage, fear, joy, depression, helplessness, sadness. And then finally acceptance. He passed away some 5 years ago and I decided to make it a goal for last year’s DGR to rebuild the bike and do a fundraiser corresponding to the build. It was a 15-month process and I rebuilt the whole thing with my own two hands except the valve heads. I support the Movember foundation and the DGR because I have lived the story of the long slow goodbye to both parents from cancer. #movember #dgr #dgr17 #ridedapper #jointhegentry
