Want to win head-to-toe motorcycle gear worth over $1,700 or a scooter outfit worth almost $900? Our friends at Urban Rider are organizing a raffle to give away all the helmets, jackets, boots, gloves and whatnot pictured above. 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Homes in Zimbabwe, a registered charity dedicated to helping poor elderly people living in the country. The drawing is July 16, one month from now.. All the items will be provided in the winner’s size and they’ll cover shipping worldwide so yes, Americans can enter. Each raffle (scooter and motorcycle) is limited to 250 tickets, so you stand a pretty good chance of winning.

    Unfortunately, they added shipping to my cart for GBP 37.25.

    If they’d fix that, I’m in.

    • Wes Siler

      If you win, you win EVERYTHING, including the jacket.

  • gregorbean

    Clickety-clack, clickety-clack!

  • Urban Rider

    Tickets selling fast. Hopefully that means we have assembled a tasty prize for you all!

    This is a brilliant cause, it costs Homes In Zimbabwe £5 a week to feed one elderly person living in residential care.

    All your e-tickets will be emailed out in the morning UK time when the store re-opens for business. We have to process each one individually to comply with UK law.

  • Urban Rider

    Some European ticket buyers (Germany) may still encounter the site trying to add shipping. Apologies for this, we have a gremlin in the tubes!

    Either go ahead and buy your ticket and we will refund the shipping or wait until tomorrow morning when we can rectify it.

    Thanks for the heads up Markus.

    Doubled down on my double down: 2 tickets for each raffle.

    Great idea to have a raffle and also props to HFL for getting the word out.

    I’m gonna get 1 or 2 motorcycle tix for myself, but I want to buy a scooter one for the wife. Should she win, would the prize be available in something more lady friendly?

    • Urban Rider

      Absolutely, we can arrange for female substitutions of any of the items in the 2 raffles.

      You can find more information in the description on our site:
      ‘please note you will receive your size in items and women’s articles will be substituted if needed.’

      Also, if the winners have any specific colour requests we will do our best to cater!

    Sweet, done!

  • Jefferson

    Note: Even when scooterati have a raffle designed by themselves to get some nice digs, the motorcyclists get the cooler looking gear.

  • wes (me again)

    What happened to the raffle? I have not seen who won, and will not respond to my email. Has anyone else heard of the winning ticket number?
