How did GWRRA get started?


Based on the premise of Fun, Safety and Knowledge, GWRRA, an international association for Gold Wing and Valkyrie motorcycle Riders, Co-riders, and Associate Members, was started June 4, 1977, by seven people with a common interest in riding their motorcycles.  They wanted to establish an association that would allow freedom from regulatory membership, yet provide benefits superior to those available from other, more ordinary, motorcycle groups.

Over 30 years later, the Association continues to grow and flourish.  Today there are 80,000 Members spread across the United States and 52 other countries!  There are over 800 Chapters where Members gather to have fun and live the motto of "Friends for Fun, Safety and Knowledge."

The Association is built on four simple ideals.  First is to "promote safety and skill enhancement," so we can continue to enjoy our hobby of riding.  The second is to "promote friendship" among the entire biking public.  The third is to "promote the positive image of the motorcycle rider" to continue striving to overcome the negative image many non-motorcyclists attach to folks like us.  The fourth ideal is to "promote fun."  After all, life is too short not to enjoy, and the one common thread that runs through this Association is the FUN factor!

What are some of my benefits as a Member of GWRRA?


The benefits of membership are many.  Member benefits include a twelve-month subscription to Wing World, one of the finest Gold Wing/Valkyrie magazines in the world!  A second benefit, the annual "Gold Book" Service Directory, has thousands of names of fellow Members offering services that range from roadside assistance to lodging.  Members also receive Free Rescue Emergency Roadside Assistance, an attractive gold-plated GWRRA pin, membership card, logo patch, and distinctive logo decals.  Other benefits that many of our Members take advantage of are:

Social Amenities / Chapter Life / Interactive Website with Message Boards
Rider Education & Training / Leadership Training
Rescue Plus Emergency Roadside Assistance for as low as $25 per year
GWRRA Official Products / Honda Dealer Discounts at many locations
Credit Union Services
Access to a Member-approved listing of motorcycle repair shops

Most of the above are material benefits; however, many of our Members feel the greatest benefit of belonging to GWRRA is the camaraderie and friendship enjoyed within the GWRRA family.

What is the benefit of belonging to a "Chapter?"


Many Members feel the Chapter is the single most important benefit of belonging to GWRRA and for many reasons, some of which are stated below.

New Friends: Countless new friends with a common interest are made.  It provides an opportunity to ride our Gold Wings with our friends.

Safe Riding: Safe riding is promoted to make our riding experience even more enjoyable.  Skills and safety techniques are learned.

Friends for Fun, Safety and Knowledge: You really get an opportunity to live the motto of "Friends for Fun, Safety and Knowledge."

The best advice that can be offered is to attend a Chapter meeting (sometimes referred to as a "gathering" or "get-together").  These meetings (normally held monthly) are social events that try to offer something for everyone.  New ideas are always welcome!

You do not "join" a Chapter; you are a Member of GWRRA and a “participant” of a Chapter or Chapters.  You can participate in as many or as few activities and meetings as you wish!  There are no applications or fees needed to participate in a GWRRA Chapter.  With over 800 Chapters, when you travel you’re never far from "home."

Most Chapters publish a newsletter, usually on a monthly basis.  When you attend your first meeting, you will be asked to sign in, and then you will be on the distribution list for that Chapter’s newsletter.  In it, you will find everything from upcoming rides, to recipes, to motorcycle items for sale, to information about other Chapters’ meetings and events.
