No i am not a member of the GWRRA ! I don't really care for the little red vest and badges ! lol We would rather just have someone like ourselves that enjoy riding to get together and do the day ride thing without the regimented club hoopla !! I guess to each his own ! I have never aspired to be crowned KING of the group or be married to the Queen , so we do our own thing ! I hope i didn't offend anyone , but the club is just not for us !!

No offense taken. I had the same concerns (contempt prior to investigation) ....... as I went to my first state convention this past weekend and had a good time.

That ritual is not that big of the entire ordeal. You won't find me wearing any of that attire...... as I never dressed like a pirate when I rode a cruiser.

The main thing is that these people ride in group and they make contacts to ride outside of the group. A great bunch of people who just enjoy motorcycling.

Actually, I found the little funny uniforms a little refreshing. More than all of the pirates I have seen at other motorcycle gatherings.

I highly recommend the GWRRA groups (Goldwing Road Riders Association) to find folks who ride wings in your area.

Just wondering how many of us on here are from Alabama.... My name is Phil and I got the Northeast Portion covered.
Phillip, nother Bama-Geezer checking in here from Smiths Station, AL (Southeast Central) on US 280/431 between Opelika & Phenix City. Is it Summer yet? Waiting for some warm weather to ride.:rolleyes:

Heard you enjoyed the Burger Run to Trenton, GA Saturday. Understand you rode with some of my friends. Hope to meet up with you in the near future.

I ride a 92 Aspencade. We got it in June of this year. We have not been on any long rides yet. I've put about 3,000 miles on it since we've had it. So far we just pick some place to go eat breakfast at on Saturday or Sunday mornings and make a ride out of it. Sorry but I do not know Terry Long.
