WELCOME TO THE NEW WEB PAGE OF GWRRA CHAPTER WI-G

We are a family organization based in the metropolitan Milwaukee Area. We have been in existence since 1983 and we are the largest 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 range from safety fairs, weekend camping/hotel trips, winter getaways to fight those winter non-biking blues, hockey games, fundraisers, dinner rides, and the list goes on and on. So, put down the kickstand and take a ride through our pages. If you happen to be in the neighborhood on a social night, stop in, we’d love to see you.

 From the Directors:

AIN’T SUMMER GRAND!!

It’s compensation for what we have to put up with all winter.

The first order of business is to send out a big THANK YOU to all the chapter G members who worked at our fundraiser on June 7. It was a great success. In addition to the chapter making a good amount, we were able to make substantial donations to both the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (Ride for Kids) and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (Amer. Cancer Society). Great job all of you who came and helped. We worked hard, but we had a lot of fun doing it. We’d also like to thank those members who came and bought some brats or hot dogs and contributed to the cause. Also a big thank you to Terry Werth who, having won the 50/50, bought frozen custard for the workers after we finished.

As you can see from our events list things really get busy in July and it carries over right into August. We’ll certainly have plenty of great destinations for rides all summer long.

Hopefully, most of you had a chance to learn the best way to pick up a fallen Wing  at the demonstration before our June social on the 29th. Thank you Dick Choyke and Bob & Jinney Schattschneider for an excellent presentation.

Hope everyone has a chance to visit Madison for Wing Ding sometime from the 2nd through the 6th. It’s going to be quite a party, and you’ll have an opportunity to meet fellow Wingers from (literally) all over the world. See you there.

Have a great July and as always: Keep the shiny side up and the dirty side down.

Rich & Sharon Winkler
