Yes. It's alright but it's certainly not my life. Some folks eat, breathe and sleep GWRRA.

Whether you like GWRRA or not usually comes down to how good your local Chapter is.

Met up with some folks from my local chapter a couple of weeks ago. What a GREAT bunch of people! Friendly, helpful, easy-going. Just came back from a ride with them a few minutes ago (an hour or two of riding, then to a member's house for pie, coffee etc., then ride home), and going on another chapter ride tomorrow morning to Saltspring Island (via a ferry), then back, with a meal during the ride back.

Funny, not only were we not looked down on for having a GL1500, we actually got lots of attention and compliments on the bike! No issues at all, as far as I could see. I guess it really does matter what the chapter's people are like. This chapter is like a family.

So, tonight I joined the GWRRA. If today was any indication, we're really going to enjoy our association with them!

Glad to hear you had a great experience. I did check out 3 chapters in the area. Well I looked at there web sites. They looked to be mainly comprised of folks who were retirees. I'm 51yrs old at concerned I just wouldnt fit it due to the generation gap. I should probably explore into more.

Have a 1982 GL1100 with sidecar and am a member. No one looks down on the old bike and we have a very active group. The next oldest in the club is a 1500 . GWRRA has its quirks but I joined for the club. AZ-D

Had our second trip with our local chapter yesterday, the second ride in two days. Fantastic! Leader was very well informed, gave a running tour commentary over the CB while we rode. Great food, great company - my wife is thrilled with our new association!!
