Gold Wing Road Riders Association, America's Heartland (Region E)


2018 is the Year of  Fun Destinations!
Gold Wing Road Riders Association (GWRRA), Minnesota Chapter "O", is based in the North Metro area of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
We would like to invite you and your family to join us for some fun and motorcycle riding. The Chapter has its monthly Social on the 4th Thursday of each month, except for November and December. We have weekly Thursday night dinner rides (from April through the beginning of October, weather permitting) which depart from the standard ride point (except when we have our monthly social).
Check out our events page for all of the details on the rides and other events, including our Saturday breakfasts.

It was supposed to be a nice day to ride come Sunday, so at our dinner social last week, I volunteered to put together a ride even though I knew I was going to be rather swamped between Thursday and Sunday with work and the Spring Ops meeting.

I worked Thursday after the social and Frid...Click the title for the full post
