GWRRA Rider Education Program


The GWRRA is proud to present the Rider Education Program.  We encourage you to think seriously about motorcycle safety and be a participant in the GWRRA Rider Education Program. You should also remember the old cliché, "an ounce of  prevention is worth a pound of cure."   Always wear protective riding Apparel!
 

 
 
LEVEL I - SAFETY BY COMMITMENT (SAFE MILES) 
    

 LEVEL I REQUIREMENTS:

  • A one time join level - After joining , you will be a Level I participant as long as you are a paid up GWRRA Member

  • No renewal for Level I is necessary.

  • To join, you must complete the GWRRA REP Level I form, have it validated by any GWRRA Officer, and mail it to the
    address indicated, along with a $6.00 fee for each registrant.

  • You will receive a "Safe Miles" Patch, Rider or Co-Rider rocker, and mileage pin indicating how many safe miles you
    have ridden since joining GWRRA or since your last accident. If you have an accident of any type, whether you are at
    fault or not, your safe miles pin should begin at zero and count forward from that time. New members will begin the
    task of completing their first 5,000 safe miles and receive a 5,000 mile pin getting them started in the program.

  • You may receive additional Safe Mileage Pins as you accumulate safe miles by having your miles validated by a GWRRA Officer. Complete the Level I form (again) and send it with $2.00 to the address shown on form. You will receive your new mileage pin to display on your "Safe Miles" Patch. Rockers are available for increments of 100,000 miles to be displayed under your patch. Pins are available in 5,000 mile increments.
