20th ANNUAL WDGAH WEEKEND
West Lebanon, New Hampshire
September 9-11, 2016
For 20 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 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 VFRdiscussion.com.

Friday Early-Bird BBQ
Once again Bryan Roth has invited everyone to his house for a Friday afternoon barbecue. This is one of the highlights of WDGAH - we suggest you don't miss it! Information and directions are on the barbecue page.
The Saturday dinner has been a highlight of the WDGAH event. We are still working out plans for the gathering. Traditionally at Lui Lui's is just a short stroll from the Fireside Inn.
The Seven Barrel Brewpub is located across from the hotel, and is the traditional evening gathering spot.
