Dave:I have been riding bikes for 26 years. I always ride in the Santa Barbara Abate
Toy Run. In 1993, my friend and I was waiting forthe ride to start, when I met Frank
Luna who was then CD of chapterCA1S, he asked me if I would like to join GWRRA and
he gave mean application and I joined and have been an active member eversince,
always enjoying the riding and social activities.
At that time I was riding a 1984 GL1200 and I had a lot of fun on thisbike and rode
to several meetings with Frank and Shirley Luna.Now, lets go back to my first street
bike which was a Yamaha DT 400.I rode this bike to work and on some back roads in
Santa Barbaraand in the mountains. Next, was my first 4 cylinder Honda 400-4and
this bike was so smooth, I made several trips with it.
Then came the 750-4 Honda, I made several long trips with this bike.I rode to Tahoe
and made several trips to LA and all over the placewith this bike. Later came my
900 custom Honda, now on this bikeI made five trips back to the east coast and even
Then came my Honda Goldwing 1200 making several trips in theU.S. to Wing-Dings and
several rallies and trips. I had a great timeriding this bike, and then in 1998
I purchased my 1998 Goldwing1500 (red), I currently have 64,000 miles on it and
while your readingthis I probably will be adding a few more miles. I been around
a loton this bike and lovin' every minute of it...
Anne: It was in 1997, I joined with my now ex-husband who was riding one of the other
makes of bikes. Soon after joining he traded it in for a new Honda Goldwing 1500.
later, after we divorced Dave asked me to ride with him and we have been to 3 Wing-Dings
and district rallies, we take several short trips on the bike and really enjoy all
the comforts it provides for the co-rider.
I tell people it is like riding in an easy chair, we really love the Goldwing and
all that GWRRA has to offer.
