To Uncle Fester. Yes you are allowed to attend any function and meeting to see how it is done. But you have to go in with an open mind. If you have more than one Chapter withing 25 miles or so, you might want to check out the other one also. MY first two meeting were in a town about 25 miles from where I live and for 2 months I attended their breakfast meetings because the Chapter where I live were out on poker rides or rallies on their meeting days. I was welcomed with open arms at the Chapter 25 miles from where I live and met a great group of people. I then had the chance to attend a Chapter meeting in my own town, and the same thing. I met a great group of people and I have been a member of Chapter 'G' in Salem, OR for the last 2 1/2 years. I am now the Membership Enhancement Officer and love what I am doing. I have seen more of Oregon and it's back roads in the last 2 and a half years than in the 40 or so years I have lived here. So go for it my brother and here's wishing you safe riding weather you join or not. Remember to

If the Chapter is worth joining, they'll let you join in to see if you feel comfortable with the group (that's what we always do); no good Chapter would ever force a decision on someone. Go tag along and see whatcha think! :D

I think they should leave the trip reports to the folks who ride. A picture from a point and shoot is good enough for that. This isn't Playboy after all.[/quote]

I agree. I am really disappointed with the direction the magazine is taking. The scenery is nice, but a lot of the "experience" of the ride is lost in a car. If I wanted to read a travel log I would go to National Geographic.
I must fit the demographics of the magazine pretty well though, because at 65, I tend to wine a lot more than I used to.... :lol: :lol:

Feb. 2014 issue, page 16 - Safe Team Riding

Article is okay but includes a picture. Reminds me of the Where's Wingy thing that have each month.

Picture is of a drill team. Seven of the eight bikes are Harley Davidson's. You have to look hard to see that #5 is a Goldwing.

If they would have asked I have a bunch of pictures of a Goldwing team from California I saw last summer in Pendleton.

I spent HOURS calling and web-searching clubs in my area of So Calif ... and after much effort and joining the NAtional Group ... I cancelled my membership and did NOT join any local groups ... few people were helpful - no one wanted to ride in the mountains - and no one wanted to talk 1500 stuff - so I befriended some Gwing riders I found motoring around and we're good friends and ride together often ... the Gwing group wasn't helpful at all

SORRY TO HAVE TO REPORT this - but it was true experience ...

anyone riding in So CA is welcome up here - super riding in the mountains ;-)

RIDE SAFE !
nice to meet you ... all the best ...

- come ride with us up in the beautiful San Bernardino Mountains in sunny southern Calif

This is a long thread and I've seen a lot of points covered. I'd like to give my two cents but I think I'll owe a dollar by the time I'm done. Apologies in advance for the long read.

I've had the distinct privilege of experiencing many different riding styles and groups. I'm 40 and I grew up in a riding family. I was riding on my dad's bikes since I could run, from his CX500 to his GL1500. He now has an 1800 but I was already in the Navy when he bought that one. Mom had a Silverwing and my sister rode with her. Lots of bike camping in the mountains of California growing up. When we moved from California to Alabama in High School dad and I rode and mom drove the Uhaul. I started my own riding life on a Honda 125 scooter and then progressed to a 250, 550, 750 to a Harley 1200 and now my 96 GL1500se. I was a solo rider for many years until I became a Freemason. I then rode with the Widow's Sons which is a Masonic Riding Association. From time to time I ride missions with the Patriot Guard Riders. As a vet it's a huge honor and privilege to give back to the vets and their family. I never leave with dry eyes.

I've also been a member of a bona fide MC. For those who don't know what that's like think Sons of Anarchy but without guns and drugs. This isn't Hollywood. Some of the most real people and closest brothers that I have met in my life were in the MC. I say all of that to say this, no matter where you go in life and no matter who you ride with, if it consists of more than 2 people there is politics, no matter how small it is.

I've ridden alone (which I prefer), staggered in a group, and club style. The first two are pretty self explanatory. The third is something to behold. I don't prefer it and it's counter to what anyone would consider safe. you will, most likely, find it absolutely abhorrent. Club riding is side by side riding less than 5 feet from the bike in front of you in a very tight group riding very fast, like 80-100 mph fast. And you can forget about ATGATT. Club ATGATT is boots, jeans, t-shirt, leather vest and sunglasses. I don't prefer that riding style and I don't do it anymore, but I am glad that I experienced it for almost a year. *GASP!!* Why?! Why would you jump out of an airplane with only a silk sheet to bring you safely to the ground? It was an experience, probably alot safer then my 4 years on the flightdeck of an Aircraft Carrier during flight ops or my time flying in a Helicopter map of the earth through the canyons in southern California. It was an experience that I'm glad I've done and I'm glad I'm not doing it anymore.

Where am I going with this? I've ridden with lots of different types of groups and lots of different types of people with lots of different types of riding styles on lots of different types of bikes. What I've found is that almost every group doesn't understand the other and they make assumptions about the other. I know many wingers that would stop and help a 300 pound, hairy, tattood HD biker when he was on the side of the road. I know many said HD bikers who would help a winger on the side of the road. I've also had alot of experience with squids on rockets. I guess you could say I would probably make a pretty good motorcycle ambassador for the various groups.

As for the not waving back issue I saw posted. Some see it as a travesty of safety and some see it as a courtesy. I can see the point on the former. The latter is the one I prescribe to. We're a band of brothers whether we know it or not. What you say when you wave is "You and I are alone against the cagers who could care less about us. I'll watch out for you and you'll watch out for me. I'm waving to tell you 'I see you, I'm here for you'." Personally, if you wave back or not, that's on you.

Now for the matter at hand as it pertains to the OPs comment and poll. I live in Central Illinois, Peoria to be exact, and the local chapter here is Chapter Z. I've had exactly one experience with them and it was very nice. I do not know about the politics of GWRRA. I do know this chapter does events throughout the year for the express purpose of helping members of the local, non-riding community. The chapter has a weekly short ride on Thursday. They leave Morton, IL and ride to a different location every week and get ice-cream. The one I went on was to a place 15 minutes away and it was a beautiful hour and a half ride to get there. Everyone I met was extremely friendly and talkative. (At this moment I should mention that although I'm 40 I still have my majesticly long beard, Mojawk (real, not fauxhawk), tattoos, two of which are on my right hand and I wear a wallet chain that could probably pull a small Ford.) My fiance and I were made to feel very welcome. In fact, we were asked to ride second in line. It may not have meant much but in all my years of riding in groups second in line has ALWAYS been a place of honor. The chapter also has dinner rides twice a month.

Will I join GWRRA? I have no idea. I will, however, continue to meet up with the local chapter and get to know them. I like the riding style and the generally laid back attitude. And yes, they all practice proper ATGATT.

I would put in my dollar but I don't think my laptop has a coin slot.

Keep the sticky parts down, the shiny parts up and your face into the wind. -Easy
Finally bought the same bike that brought me so much joy as a kid from the backseat.

Well, I did join GWRRA, Region H Chapter W (Wild West Riders) and so far, NO REGRETS !
The main reasons I joined, in no particular order :
1) Wing Rider mag , you might LOL but I like the read
2) the Rider Assistance Club ( or what ever it is called ) , think AAA for Goldwings / bikes only better IMO
3) The people in my chapter, they are great!
4) Gold Book
5) chapter events, my chapter and other local chapters

the biggest negative I have so far, they are all GL1800 riders, so not much knowledge to share with me about my GL1500.

In an issue this spring Kevin discussed being hired to a Motorcycle magazine and not being a rider.
He then when on in next issue or so to get his endorsement and discuss Gear, etc.

I don't know what he rides now but I think he is actually trying to broaden the brand at least how he fits into it.

I do agree there are some issues but those go with the territory, as some else said. any group more than 2 has those issues sometimes they are healthy, sometimes they cause a melt down.

I think like anything in life you approach it like it is a smorgasboard. Not everything served up is for everybody but there is enough there that everyone can find enough for themselves if they choose. Not saying or pushing either way but as things go along it may work for more or less. You won't know until you check it out.

I am currently a member not that this should matter.

Not everyone enjoys all that is offered by GWRRA. I drive an '82 GL1100 with a Watsonian sidecar. There are no other 1100's or 1200's in the club, at least none come to the events. Only a few 1500's as the most are 1800's. I never saw the snobbishness some people have had in this subject. The club does ride. If someone is interested in the club they need to go to a meeting and go to events. I don't do the vest or patches and no one suggests I should. You don't have to either. The magazine does nothing for me, it's the people I have met that keeps me a member.

Not interested in the magazine or Wing Ding, then join for the comaraderie and fun events each chapter has. I joined because I ride a Goldwing and wanted to be a part of a group of like minded riders.

I hafta say, however, I agree about the ads for WingDing...wowzers there are a lot.
For us as well, it's all about the local Chapter.
You are so right about your chapter being larger and much more active then most chapters. Everyone knows that if you don't care to read the ads or whatever no one is making you. As for chapter faults, they all have some, you don't have to go to everything. We have found the thing we like to do is ride to other states and visit the District Conventions. Taking a long vacation and seeing places we have not been to before, or in many years. I like the idea of belonging to an organization that lets you do as little or as much as you wish. One thing I believe that is not going over for many is the MEP, it has gotten rather "pushy".

Our Chapter (KY-G) does the same - We have a large contingent of couples who have Bunk House/Time -Out/Aspen/Lee sure Lite trailers and we try to hit all the close by District Conventions as well.

For us, it's all about riding with friends- not so much the parent organization. Everyone is different, of course, but I am really happy belonging to an active Chapter.

Go in peace.

Not a member as yet but been thinking about it since buying my first Goldwing last April, 20014. A 2000 Special Edition Trike. That's why I looked up this forum, to get others ideas on membership. I have ridden bikes all my life but always pretty much alone. My wife convinced me that if I switched to a trike she would ride with me for the first time ever. Since my legs aren't what they used to be to hold the bike up and with her promise in mind I converted my vtx1300 to a trike and lo and behold she took to riding, so I then bought my Goldwing trike. Now this brings me to the topic at hand. Figured I would look into finding a group of like minded people to ride with once in a while and maybe find some new friends along the way. I heard about the GWRRA and went to their website but to be truthful I haven't been convinced that they are the answer that I seek. And as I'm not much into organizations because there always seems to be too much politics if you get more than 2 people involved. And now after thoroughly reading thru this thread I see that there are many opinions on both sides of this topic so I guess it's still a decision to made in the future, maybe if there is a local chapter in the area that I can visit without prior commitment that would help. We will see. Anyway thanks all, for your input.

Go to your States GWRRA site and look under, Chapters, that tells where each has their get togethers plus people to contact. Remember, you join GWRRA and can go to anything that you wish or not as you choose. If you are a total lone rider there are things to visit all over still. Plus, the Gold Book gives you contacts for help in most areas. You make it what you want.

I am a member of GWRRA. I went to meeting and a couple of group rides with the locals. I found them to be very unfriendly. I am also a PGR member and have been for years. Three members of the local started running down PGR calling them a bunch of stuck up SOBs. I was PGR state secretary at the time and didn't see any humor in their doing so. Never went back. Don't think I will :roll: .

I don't know what Chapter you went to, but my experience has been 100% the opposite....fun, very friendly and great to ride and camp with. I'm sorry you had a bed experience, perhaps you might visit a different Chapter.
Our Chapter has a great time and I'm glad we are a part of it (KY-G) :D
