Welcome Letter


Welcome to FL2-F, Gulf Coast Wings. We are a chapter of the Gold Wing Road Riders Association (GWRRA). If you ride a motorcycle or a trike, then you are welcome here. GWRRA offers membership to all riders.

The Gold Wing Road Riders Association (GWRRA) is the world’s largest motorcycle organization for owners and riders of motorcycles and trikes — 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 motorcycle organization. We have members who ride all kinds of different motorcycles.

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. In Florida alone, there are 34 GWRRA chapters. GWRRA is truly an international organization.

We would like to invite you to join us for our next ride or our next monthly Chapter Gathering.

A Chapter Gathering is a social breakfast starting at 8:00AM, then a short update type meeting at 9:00AM. Chapter Gatherings are NOT boring business meetings they are social affairs to talk abut what we are doing and areas of mutual interest, and a lot of FUN. We usually have a ride after our Chapter Gathering. Chapter Gatherings are held at the Golden Corral Restaurant, 1451 Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda.

Our Chapter usually has at least 2 group rides per week plus several other activities. We usually meet for our rides in the shopping center parking lot of Peachland Promenade Shopping Center, right behind the McDonald’s at 24133 Peachland Blvd, Port Charlotte. October through the middle of May we meet and get ready to go at 9:30AM for most of our rides and leave promptly at 10:00AM. Middle of May through September we meet and get ready to go at 7:30AM for most of our rides and leave promptly at 8:00AM. Check the calendar on our website gwrra-fl2-f.org for details. TRIKES ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!

GWRRA has impressive member benefits. Florida Rider Education also offers members FREE motorcycle training and classroom instruction on all facets of, motorcycling, Medic/ First Aid and Motorist Awareness. We offer overnight rides, special ride programs, guest speakers covering motorcycle issues, rally/convention opportunities, membership discounts on hotels, motorcycle products, rider education/ training programs, weekly chapter newsletter, The Gold Book, Wing World Magazine, and “Rescue Plus” roadside towing/assistance comes free with your membership.

Our Chapter puts out a newsletter. If you would like to receive a copy of the newsletter, send an email to glen.disbrow@gmail.com along with your name and phone and we will get you on the list. You can also see our newsletters on our website at gwrra-fl2-f.org.

Most importantly, you’ll be in a motorcycle association that shares your passion for responsible riding and the constant search for a road not yet ridden.

Give us a call and let’s ride:
