Trike Clubs/Organizations???

Does anyone know of any clubs, organization, or chapters in N. Georgia? I'd like to become aquainted with some sort of riding group where there are other trikers.

Try this link: http://www.trikes.org/districts%20&%20chapters.htm

This is the link to Trike Riders International's district list. There are about 3 in Georgia..not sure if any or close to you. Costs $20 a year with 4 great trike magazines a year included in the cost...I think they are running a special for $15 right now.

Hope this helps.

You might want to pose the question at the GWTA and Trike Talk forums and to ask around locally, particularly at trike and motorcycle dealerships.

While some here may disagree, I really like Trike Riders International.

It is a growing organization with some new great things coming in the near future. The folks in charge now are really trying to give members additional benefits for their membership.

While it's roots may have been with GWRRA, it is growing rapidly, and includes ANY and ALL trikes....Harleys, Kit Trikes, and home builts.

Come on out and check us out....the national rally is in Branson Mo. August 20-22. Or check the website at www.trikes.org.

Look forward to seeing everyone down the road soon!

I'm glad you enjoy TRI. I personally have no interest in a top down social organization, especially one with such high overheads.

As I understand it, all officers in the GWRRA and TRI, except perhaps for those a the lowest level are appointed by the company that owns the organizations, rather than through elections. I also am of the impression that the financial records of the two organizations are not available to the membership. Am I mistaken?

I don't know, but I enjoy the magazine, just about any magizine you order now is twenty dollars....I don't go to any meeting's but when I show up...I'm welcome..i guess they weed out the people with a bad out look...
