Welcome to the website of the Gold Wing Road Riders Association, Louisiana District
What is GWRRA?
The Gold Wing Road Riders Association (GWRRA) is the world's largest single-marquee social organization for owners and riders of Honda Gold Wing motorcycles-and some would say, the world's largest family. Dedicated to our motto, Friends for Fun, Safety and Knowledge, GWRRA members enjoy the freedom of belonging to a non-profit, non-religious and non-political organization.
Founded in 1977, GWRRA has grown to more than 65,000 U.S., Canadian and international members in 48 foreign countries over the past 20 years, 900 active Chapters are managed by 4,000 volunteer officers working with members to foster safe, enjoyable riding while also working to improve the public image of motorcycling.
Once you join GWRRA, you can participate with as many Chapters as you choose. You decide your own level of involvement and time. Wherever you go, wherever you travel, you're welcomed. GWRRA membership opens doors to friendship everywhere you ride!
Monthly Chapter get-togethers (often light-hearted exchanges of information at a breakfast location) are pleasant, social occasions. There are no expectations, riding requirements, elections, politics, required uniforms or Chapter dues.
We invite you to share the joys of owning and riding your Gold Wing with 65,000 people like you worldwide! We even guarantee you'll be glad you did!
Who Belongs to GWRRA?
GWRRA members are men and women from all walks of life with varied interests and backgrounds. We have riders in their teens, riders in their 90s and every age in between! Many ride solo; many ride as couples. With sidecars attached to their Wings, many ride with their children or grandchildren! Some ride Wings that are new; some ride Wings that are "classics."
Some belong for the technical information we share; some just for the enjoyment of riding with friends.
As a family organization, typical GWRRA fun includes restaurant runs, picnic rides, campouts or CPR/first aid workshops conducted in a wholesome, fun-filled environment suitable for all family members. We also have dances, charity runs, parades, ice cream socials and riding clinics.
For Gold Wing/Valkyrie owners there are Individual Membership and Family Membership.
Individual Membership - just what it says. Individual Rider membership.
Family Membership - for two or more individuals within the same household to belong to GWRRA for a lower membership fee.
For non-Gold Wing owners - there are Individual Associate Membership and Family Associate Membership.
Individual Associate Membership - for individuals who do not own a Gold Wing/Valkyrie.
Family Associate Membership - for two or more individuals within the same household who desire membership.
Some of our most dedicated members, though once apprehensive about riding as passengers, have discovered the joys of touring: the fresh air, the beautiful vistas, the close communication with their partners. Many even learn to ride their own machines.
While generalization about a group of individuals as large as today's GWRRA is difficult, GWRRA members are likely to be independent thinkers, fun-loving, generous, adventuresome, cooperative and unfazed by the natural challenges of riding in the rain, temperature extremes or highway uncertainties. Many members have completed CPR and first aid training, making them the best-prepared riders on the world's highways!
