We are a family organization based in the metropolitan Milwaukee Area. We have been in existence since 1983 and we are one of the larger GWRRA chapter in the state of Wisconsin. Besides our love of Gold Wings, we love to have fun. You will commonly see our members riding together and doing non-motorcycling events. We enjoy meeting new people and we accept new members with open arms. If you have a technical question, most likely someone in our group will be able to assist. Our activities include safety fairs, weekend camping/hotel trips, winter getaways to fight those winter non-biking blues, fundraisers, dinner rides, and the list goes on and on. If you happen to be in the neighborhood on a social night, stop in, we’d love to see you.

FROM THE DIRECTORS:
As usual the summer is flying by. August always seems to get here way sooner than we’d like. Next thing we know it’s Fall. At least we’re having a great summer and enjoying many good times together. Let’s keep it up while we can. We’re still hoping to find some new places to visit during the remaining summer months. We’ll let members know via email of upcoming events. In case you didn’t notice the location of our August dinner ride had to be changed. The original location we planned to visit has decided to only have carryout dining, so we’ve changed our destination to Irish Cottage II. Unfortunately, as we were forced to do in 2020 because of Covid, we again have to cancel our annual Chapter G picnic and chapter challenge for 2021. Milwaukee county is still not issuing any picnic area reservations. Without a reservation we just can’t be sure we can get an area for the picnic. Maybe by August of next year we will be back to “totally normal”. We’ve also been forced to cancel one of our most enjoyable chapter events which was always held in September. Unfortunately, this is a permanent situation. Our annual “Fall Fling” has had to end because the Konkapot Lodge where we’d held it for many years has been closed. We don’t know if it was another casualty of COVID or if it was closed for some other reason. We’re going to miss the great times we always had there. We’re still enjoying having our socials outdoors at county park beer gardens so that’s most likely where they’ll be held any time the weather cooperates. Members will be notified via email of location and time as usual. We’re hoping to see you all at one or all of our upcoming events
