The Annual Northeast Gathering of VFR owners - Celebrating 23 years of great riding and great times!


West Lebanon, New Hampshire
September 6, 7, & 8, 2019

For 23 years, WDGAH has been the annual northeast gathering of VF/VFR owners. From just a few people meeting to ride for a weekend in '97, the event has come to include riders from all over the northeastern U.S. and Canada, from as far away as Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Quebec, Ontario, and the Atlantic Provinces. Why "WDGAH"? It stands for "We Don't Give A Hoot" - a quip that came from one of the event founders. It was a good-natured play on the Honda Hoot, as well as a comment on the occasional riding behavior of some of the attendees.

This is an informal event! No fees, no schedule, no organization. We negotiate a group rate at a hotel, and usually gather for dinner at a local restaurant -- but this is just a bunch of  enthusiasts getting together to have a good time.  It's an opportunity to meet fellow riders and enjoy our passion for motorcycling and Honda's V-4. (All makes and models are welcome, however).  More on WDGAH history here.

There is no formal sign-up. If you want to find a roommate or meet others for the ride in, post to the VFR Google Group (VFR list) and/or

Friday Early-Bird BBQ - CANCELLED this year!

Unfortunately Bryan cannot host his usual Friday afternoon barbecue this year, due to business travel.  The 
Salt Hill Pub is just a walk through the parking lot, and is a good alternative Friday gathering place. 

Saturday Dinner

Traditionally we will gather at Lui Lui's or Ziggy's Pizza. Both are just a short stroll from the Fireside Inn. No formal group dinner this year - grab some friends and head on down. Usually people are down there around 7 or 7:30.

There is also a new pub located near the hotel - the Salt Hill Pub, replacing the former 7 Barrels Brewpub as the traditional evening gathering spot.
