new massachusettes winger looking for a club/group to ride with. resideing near Rhode Island border. I am new to cycling, licensed this year and riding my first, an 84 aspencade. going to tear down soon for repainting and repairs. the previous owner wasnt very kind to her, and i am on a tight budget but i cant think of any better place to put my extra cash. who wants to retire anyway.
email me at [email protected] and put club info in the subject line so i dont delete it as junk mail. thanks, Bruce

Welcome to the GW Owners forum. I am new to the forum but have owned the '08 GW since '08. I love riding and I occasionally ride to New Port, RI or Providence from Hudson, NH for a day trip. I can let you know the next time I am down that way and we can do some riding if you're interested. Or when you are up in NH, you can let me know and we can ride up here. I usually travel w/ the wife.

Consider the GWRRA, its a great place to really learn how to ride safe. Most people are mid 40's and all the way up to who knows in age but all love their wings. Every year,make, and model. Worth a look anyway and it won't cost you a dime to check them out and even attend a meeting or go on a ride with them.

Hi from Down Under. Have fun working on the wing. There will be no retirement for me. When I stop driving trains across Australia I will have a full time job in my shed. Well that is my plan.

I joined the GWTA "T" chapter (Goldwing Touring Association, Toronto Chapter). I have made some great friends and riding buddies. A couple of days ago I joined the GWRRA (Goldwing Road Riders Association). There is no chapter close to where I live but has other advantages like their Wing World magazine.
The bottom line is, if you are active, and like the other people in the chapter it's all worth it. If you are not active (like many people that are in our GWTA chapter and to this day I've never met), then you will not get anything out of the club.

Safe riding, and welcome to the board

My wife and I just joined the local MS GWRRA Chapter L group and they are a ton of fun. We rode to see Christmas lights in 30 F. then went to catfish house and got to fellowship with them. They invited me to their annual ride to Butler, AL on Jan 1 and then to regular meeting on Jan. 3. They are big into safety training and I am looking forward to going through their school in the spring.
