Second GWRRA Chapter Meeting

Last night Slick and I attended our second GWRRA High Point Chapter-G meeting. I was pretty fun. We met for dinner with the group and about 3 other chapters in Archdale. Several member rode their Goldwings to the event. It is always nice to see other Goldwing riders and their bikes. That is why we are looking forward to the open house event in a couple of weeks in Asheboro at the Cycle Center.

As I said, the meeting was fun. There are a lot of nice friendly people at the chapter meetings. Craig (our chapter educator) loaned me a couple of videos to watch on motorcycle riding. One was on Co-riding. It was a good tape. However, the other tape was all jacked up. It was supposed to be on touring and braking. Well, it turned out to be a very old tape on motorcycle trailors and hutches. Of course, I will have to let Craig know about that tape. Luckily it was not a tape of something a little more sensitive, if you know what I mean.

Anyway, back to the meeting. We ate dinner and Vickie and Andrew (chapter leaders) made some announcements on upcoming events. They also talked about Andrew's fail about 4 weeks ago. He broke his collarbone during a freaky accident. His bike was damaged and the group that was with him kind of ran into situation of what to do with the bike and Andrew. They called a new couple in our group for help. This great couple got the call around 10 pm from Craig for assistance. They went to Craigs home to get his trailor and drove about 6 hours (arriving at 5 am) to pick up Andrew and the bike. Then they headed back a couple hours later. Now is that awesome or what? That is an example of the great members we have in our chapter and why Slick and I are excited about being part of High Point Chapter-G.

Also during the chapter meeting a lady from another chapter talked about some great motorcycle glove designed for motorcycle riders. The gloves were developed by a orthopedic surgeon and displayed during the Wing Ding in Nashville. I bought a pair and they are awesome. To find out more about the "Qwi" gloves just go to the Qwi website.

Well there was more stuff that happened during the chapter meeting, but I need to stop this entry. I feel like I am writing a novel.

Until next time and happy riding!
