Are there any organized Wing riders in the Phoenix area?
Hi Belgar,Are there any organized Wing riders in the Phoenix area?
The Gold Wing Touring Association GWTA Chapter F (F-Troop) can be found on Meetup at
The monthly meeting is this Saturday at 8 am.
OLD COUNTRY BUFFET
6625 E Southern Ave, Mesa, AZ
Get there about 7:30 to meet the folks in the parking lot and start eating prior to the meeting. I won't be there as I'm doing a BB1500 this weekend.
There is also a GWRR group in Scottsdale but I don't know anything about them.
Az-S Meeting is first Saturday of the month. It is now at the restaurant at Deer Valley Airport at 8:00AM. Check it out here.
In addition I ride with the AZ Beemers Club (www.azbeemers.org) as they are not particular about the bike you ride and won't give you crap about not riding a BMW.
As I recall, some gave up riding for health reasons, seems like one is deceased..... couple of guys would cruise in from Vegaswe used to have a fairly good core group of riders that got together for Saturday rides fairly frequently. Unfortunately a number have left the state.

We even had a celeb out here one time... Jan Kokochak visited and rented a wing to ride with his wife...obviously, before my time.
We've had some early winter rides...predominately to rub it in on those back east who have their steeds safely tucked away for the season.
Two years ago, we gathered at Heart Attack Grill... :thumbup: Had to have been a couple dozen of us, including some of the SoCal contingent.
Belgar - one thing to consider - with a bit of warning, a few of us from Baja Arizona might even head north for a RTE (ride-to-eat) opportunity.
Wayne does tell the story well of the annual February Death Valley ride & the impetus for that annual adventure...<...>Shuckaduck Tim would ride down from Vegas for a run around the areas, Tim would bring a friend on another goldwing, I forget his name. Wayne may remember
