So Derek and I are looking for a new motorcycle group within the GWRRA. Unfortunately for us, the nearest group is about 2 hours away.
By the way this translate to Gold Wing Road Riders Association.
These groups are a hoot! We went to an event sponsored by OR-G (Thanks Trent) called the Right Turn Ride where the entire long ride consists of only right turns. No you don’t get dizzy. There were about 60 riders there. Some were Flamingo’s, others Aliens and even a cartoon character. No I really can’t explain here, it’s something you have to experience. Now don’t go thinking it was an early halloween party, these are mascots of the various chapters. And they are cherished and protected. Nothing like the thrill of stealing a mascot from another chapter or the victory of returning yours to home base. Afterwards we all went for a great ride of 121 miles through scenic twists and turns, over green hills and forested areas. The scenery cannot be beat when riding on the back of a bike. Nor can the smell of cows stuck in your helmet…I love this life!
But I began to wonder…If I was in my 20’s I’d officially be in a ‘motorcycle gang’! However, when you’re in your 50’s you’re in a group…with stuffed animals. Ah momma never told me.
Needless to say, great group of folks, lots of beautiful bikes and miles of open road 🙂
