Gold Wing Riders Association brings safety and tourism to Kentucky
LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (WTVQ) – Every few years, one of the state’s largest motorcycle groups pick a town for a big gathering.
This year it’s Lawrenceburg, but it’s not what it might sound like.
This year’s Honda Gold Wing Riders gathering is like the previous years. It’s about fun, education and renewing friendships.
And for Lawrenceburg, with dozens of fancy motorcycles in town, it’s about tourism and showing off the community so they’ll come back. For the Gold Wing Riders, it’s about not just the camaraderie but also some pretty basic things.
“We have levels program where you can get training on life skills as well as riding skills and we also have CPR and first aid training so its about being safe on your motorcycle being educated as a rider and a co-rider with a group of friends that you have fun with,” says Leah Cridlin, a member of the group.
Friday night, the Gold Wing Riders will parade through Lawrenceburg. The event kicks off at 9:45 and goes from the American Legion through downtown.
