The GWRRA of Kentucky is made up of Honda Gold Wing motorcycle owners from throughout the state.

District Blast attendees will be coming from Kentucky as well as other nearby states. The theme is “Hawaiia Doin’ in Kentucky.”

“We are looking forward to seeing lots of Gold Wings in Danville at the end of August,” said Kendall Clinton, executive director of the Danville-Boyle County Convention and Visitors Bureau. “I’ve been assisting the GWRRA leadership as they’ve worked to plan this event and we hope to have them back for the Blast in future years. They’ve been a great organization to work with.”

The group generally selects a new host city for the District Blast every three to four years.

GWRRA of Kentucky invites all motorcyclists to join them. You can register onsite for the rally on Thursday, Aug. 25 and Friday, Aug. 26 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., and on Saturday Aug. 27 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Full registration or daily registration fees apply.
