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:
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL YOU WONDERFUL CHAPTER G MOMS.
What a wonderful time of year May is in Wisconsin!
We are now starting the real “Riding Season” in the Milwaukee area. By now everyone has the bikes out and running and we can go on some great rides and enjoy the wonderful spring weather and the beautiful spring colors we’re finally seeing. It’s a great time to be a “Cheesehead”.
May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Both motorcyclists and motorists need to be aware of their surroundings. … Checking blind spots, mirrors and using turn signals are necessary when changing lanes and when passing. Distracted driving has been on the rise, too. It’s essential that bikers use extra caution because not all motorists will be doing so.
Chapters all over the state are beginning to schedule events as well. Chapter C has their brat fry on Friday the April 30th and Saturday May 1st in Fond Du Lac. Also on May 1st is Chapter E’s brat fry in Randolph. Details concerning locations and times can be found on the district calendar.
We’re looking forward to spending more time on our bikes and outside in the great outdoors as the spring progresses into summer. Get out and enjoy.
Rich & Sharon Winkler – Chapter G directors.
May Birthdays: John Hickman- 8th, Lynn Borkenhagen – 15th.
May Anniversaries: Al and BJ Parrot – 6th
