September 2019

group picture

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:

It’s hard to believe the summer is almost over.                                                                              August certainly was packed full of many fun filled events with our chapter, the district, and even with what used to be Region E.                                                                                                          The Region E Reunion Ride-in to La Crosse was a great time. Rich Winkler and Mark Hansen from our chapter attended. We had some great rides, lots of fun and fellowship, and just an altogether enjoyable time with Wingers from all over the Midwest. There were  even riders from as far away as Oklahoma who made the trip.

Shortly after that we had our annual Chapter G corn roast/picnic at Jackson park in Milwaukee. The weather was perfect, the food was good, and the fellowship was outstanding.

We had members of Chapters F, K, and N join us:

We didn’t compete for the Chapter Challenge Trophy this year, but we did have a great time playing Bocci Ball. None of us had ever played it before, so it was a great learning experience for all of us. We played guys against the gals and it was a spirited contest the whole way. The guys won, but we’re not certain if it was because the gals let us win.                                                          One of our most enjoyable events normally takes place in mid-September, but as was noted above, our annual Fall Fling to Konkapot Lodge near Bowler WI, had to be cancelled this year because of schedule conflicts for some of the few members who still wanted to attend. There just weren’t enough people going to hold the event. We’re hoping to renew it in 2020.

We are still holding our ROMEO lunch ride, monthly dinner ride, and social in September, so we’re really looking forward to seeing you at one or all of our events this month. We’ll be having a great time.
