There are few things in life worth photographing more than distinguished gentlemen riding motorbikes, so when we found out that there would be a collection of said chaps going on in our own city of Sheffield we simply had to get down there.
We had arranged to meet at the Steam Yard cafe just off Division Street at 9am, which as it turns out was a little early. When we got there we saw a lone Harley parked outside and thought that perhaps we would be spending the next few hours taking detail shots of this magnificent machine. Not long later though a small group of well turned out chaps pulled up on their motorbikes, giving us more hope that we had indeed arrived at the right place at the right time. Not long after that we heard a distant rumble, then as if out of nowhere came tens if not hundreds of bikes from all directions. In the space of about ten minutes it had gone from a quiet Sunday morning in town to a very well dressed bike show with amazing photo-opps everywhere we looked.
We had a great time milling about chatting with all the lovely people who had oiled up their pride and joy and donned their suits for a worthy cause (find out more about that cause here: http://www.gentlemansride.com/).
When the time came for the riders to start their journey we made a run down to Charter Row, staked out some spots and got photos of the riders going past.
