The Gold Wing Road Riders Association (GWRRA) is the world's largest single-marque social organization for owners and riders of Honda Gold Wing/Valkyrie 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 not-for-profit, non-religious and non-political organization.

Founded in 1977, GWRRA has grown to more than 72,000 U.S., Canadian and international Members in 53 foreign countries in just 35 years. Over 800 active Chapters are managed by 4,000 volunteer leaders working with members to foster safe, enjoyable riding while also working to improve the public image of motorcycling. Read More

6.15.15 - Wing World Article Notice: June 2015

In June's article "Part II, Motorcycle Tires: A primer for the layperson," a line in the article states, "Not only that, but the folks who install tires at these events aren't necessarily familiar with your Gold Wing's maintenance procedures and specifications. At rally's end, they evaporate into thin air, leaving customers unlucky enough to have installation issues twisting in the wind."

GWRRA recommends that if you bring your bike to a rally, remember to research the company providing service on your bike. GWRRA emphasizes that it makes sure to have reputable vendors at all its events and that they are there to provide the best service they can to you. View the Article

4.1.14 - "Rescue Plus: Not Without Making it Better."

Over the 16 years that I�ve had the privilege to serve the membership of GWRRA, I have always been amazed how hard this organization works to take care of each and every one of its Members. Very few groups of this nature provide their membership with as much as GWRRA does and that continues to be a great sense of pride for all of us. So much so that we spend countless hours looking for the next great product or service that we can proudly bring into the GWRRA package of Member benefits.

One that we take pride in is our roadside assistance program, better known as Rescue and Rescue Plus. As you know, Rescue is included with your membership and provides roadside assistance to your motorcycles. Rescue Plus is an add-on benefit, which works on not only your motorcycles, but also your non-commercial vehicles.

For the last 10-plus years, our Rescue Plus program has been offered at a rate of $25 per year � a price that is almost 75 percent less than its nearest competitor. Through the increases in fuel costs, insurance costs and typical inflation price increases, we worked hard to keep it fixed in order to keep offering an amazing program at an even more amazing rate.

Unfortunately, we have found ourselves in a position where we can no longer offer such an outstanding benefit at its current price. Beginning April 1, 2014, the price of our Rescue Plus program will increase to $35 per year after almost 10 years at its previous rate. But at this price, we are still more than 70 percent below our fellow competitors offering a similar (and often inferior) product. As much as we disliked increasing our rates, we refused to do so without adding additional benefits to this already great program.

Our program will now also include two new benefits to enhance your Rescue Plus, the first being MedeFile, a digitally secure way to keep your medical records. Having your medical records handy could be crucial in an emergency situation, particularly if you�re out on the road. The second is a prescription discount card that you can use at thousands of pharmacies to reduce the cost of your prescriptions. Alternatively, you can also use the discounts for mail-order prescriptions.

I hope that you will give this great program a try. It brings us great joy and peace of mind to know that our membership is taken care of no matter where they are or whether they are on two, three or four wheels. For more information, please contact our Member Services department at 800–843–9460.
