Welcome To the Arkansas District Home on the Web


We are the Arkansas District of the Gold Wing Road Riders Association. GWRRA is the world's largest single-marquee social organization for owners and riders of Honda Gold Wing motorcycles, 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 non-profit, non-religious and non-political organization.

GWRRA also welcomes riders of all types of motorcycles, not just Gold Wings. Got a Valkyrie, BMW, Kawasaki, Suzuki, any other Honda or other marquee? Then you'll be made to feel welcome at any of our activities.

This Web Site is provided as a means of introducing others to GWRRA, keeping our members up to date on events, and providing touring information so that everyone can enjoy the fantastic scenic, historic and cultural opportunities that the State of Arkansas has to offer. Enjoy our Web Site, check everything out, & come back often, because we update information regularly.

The Battle of the Bulge Begins - December 16th, 1944



1944 - The Battle of the Bulge, the final major German counteroffensive of World War II, began.  Initially, the Nazi commanders were able to thrust deep into Allied territory in North and East Belgium, a 75-mile front, choosing a time when foggy, rainy weather prevailed.  The Allies were taken by surprise, but recovered and repulsed the Nazi offensive by January 1945.



Boston Tea Party - December 16, 1773



When the British repealed the Townsend Act they removed all taxes and duties on goods, except for tea.  This became the focal point of the colonists anger.

The British East India Company had controlled all tea trading between India and the British colonies.  As a result of the tea tax, the colonies refused to buy the British tea.  Instead, they smuggled tea in from Holland.  This left the British East India Company with warehouses full of unsold tea, and the company was in danger of going out of business.

The British government was determined to prevent the British East India Company from going out of business.  It was going to force the colonists to buy their tea.  In May 1773, Prime Minister North and the British parliament passed the Tea Act.  The Tea Act allowed the British East India Company to sell tea directly to the colonists, bypassing the colonial wholesale merchants.  This allowed the company to sell their tea cheaper than the colonial merchants who were selling smuggled tea from Holland.

This act revived the colonial issue of taxation without representation.  The colonies once again demanded that the British government remove the tax on tea.  In addition, the dockworkers began refusing to unload the tea from ships.

The Governor of Massachusetts demanded that the tea be unloaded.  He also demanded that the people pay the taxes and duty on tea.

On the evening of December 16, 1773, a group of men calling themselves the "Sons of Liberty" went to the Boston Harbor.  The men were dressed as Mohawk Indians.  They boarded three British ships, the Beaver, the Eleanor and the Dartmouth, and dumped forty-five tons of tea into the Boston Harbor.



   "There will never be a really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly."
~ Henry David Thoreau
