Based on the premise of Fun, Safety and Knowledge, GWRRA is an
international association for Gold Wing, F6B and Valkyrie motorcycle
riders, co-riders, and associate members. It was started in 1977, by
seven people with a common interest of riding Gold Wing 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. Now, almost 40 years
later, the Association continues to grow and flourish. Today there are
over 60,000 Members spread across the United States and 54 other
countries! There are close to 800 chapters where Members
gather to have fun and live the motto of "Friends for Fun, Safety and
now recognized as the world's largest single-marquee motorcycle
association in the world.
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!
Many Members feel the Chapter is the single most important benefit of
belonging to GWRRA. You can meet countless new friends with a
common interest. GWRRA provides an opportunity to ride our
Gold Wings with our friends. Safe riding is promoted to make
our riding experience even more enjoyable and new skills and safety
techniques are learned.
With a local chapter, you really get an opportunity to live the motto
of "Friends for Fun, Safety and Knowledge."
When you receive your Wing World magazine, you will find an "Officers
Listing" by District with contact information to locate a chapter
within riding distance of where you live.

or as few activities and meetings as you wish! There are no
applications or fees needed to participate in a GWRRA Chapter. With
