Is this company still in business? Been over 5 months and no reports of a positive experience. In fact, the last thing posted was about someone about to get booted from a board for mentioning gwrra.

I know nothing about the GWRRA but the line between a Company and a Non Profit Organization can become blurry when those in control have an agenda.

I've been there and seen that.

Well I went to the monthly meeting last Saturday and afterwards there was a club picnic. The chapter meeting had about 35 members in attendance and there was 25 people at the picnic.

The Forum removes the time and distance between like minded individuals. It is quite the communication tool. I give great thanks to the owners of the board.

As several here have already mentioned, we in the Dallas Fort Worth area have a real strong and close-knit group.
My chapter (M) regularly has 50-60 at each meeting. We have at least one ride a week and depending on the weather, have at least 20 people show up. We also have several events each year with multiple area chapters.
I've ridden a Goldwing for about 10 years, but only joined GWRRA a couple of years ago.
I really hate to read about this chapter not being friendly, or that chapter not doing much.
About 6 months ago, I volunteered to take over as Chapter Educator from the previous couple that had been doing it for 7 years and were burnt out. I was willing to step up and take over to get that piece back up to where it should be. I'm sure that I will also be burnt out in a couple of years, but will do my best until then.
Any organization is only what you put into it, not what you expect out of it.

I joined in 78 and started a SF Bay Area chapter in 79 when the Gold Wing scene was exploding as was Gwrra in Calif with chapters everywhere. We took 7 bikes to wing ding 79 in AZ, their first ding and 35 bikes in 80, then the European wingers flew to Vancouver in a chartered jet with their bikes where I spent a month with them on the road ending up at Ding 81 in AZ..what a blast. The 82 ding was at Steamboat Springs in Co, another great time and having said that, rra was wonderful experience for me having gained many life long pals, half whom are dead now as the average winger in 79 was 39.8 years old while I was 27.

I started with them as soon as I purchased my first wing. I found it to be a bit too formal . My riding is a bit more spirited and longer legs.
I kept in touch with a few members for a little while but lately the chapter almost came apart.There is not much in there that I cannot get from this forum. If I brake down I have towing insurance. Dont kill me, I dont hate them, just not my cup of tea.
And like you Larry I've cut ties with 1800 forum. One of the mods in there is a real jerk. He threaten to ban me if I post regarding a certain subject even thou wasn't against the boards rule. Also he said if I mention that I will be suspended. Some mods are developing a God attitude as soon as get a bit of power.This forum is a bit more relaxed and you can say "Sh#t" without anyone going back and change it into "poop". Ill stick around.

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

I think you spelled that wrong. It's supposed to be "sh!t", isn't it?...and...

...you spelled poop backwards.

Darn, sorry my attitude sticks out here so bad.

My experience over on the 1800 riders was not all that good either.

Made 350+ posts providing info and links to good info.

The BIG EGO moderator there warned me that if I make one more he will ban me.

I solved that,
I deleted every single post and deleted their bookmark.
