Indiana District Directors:

 

Hi! We’re Rick and Debbie Warmels and we’re so proud and honored to be Indiana District Directors. We’re also D2 Senior Chapter Directors (Fort Wayne Johnny Appleseed Wings) and Senior Master Tour Riders. Rick is also a Rider Course Instructor and certified ITCP trainer.

We live in the little town of Spencerville, IN about 20 miles north of Fort Wayne. We’ve lived in NE Indiana for over 33 years, coming to the area from Jacksonville, FL where Rick served in the Navy. We have been married 35 years, have no children, and share our home with 4 cats. Rick is planning retirement after working at a large defense contractor while Debbie plans to retire from her job as the area local office manager for the State welfare department. Besides riding, Rick likes to golf and is a retired softball and football official. Rick grew up in Atlanta, GA so you may see an Atlanta Falcons patch on his vest, motorcycle, and/or car. Debbie enjoys shopping and being the neighborhoods crazy cat lady taking care of not only our four cats but strays from around the area.

Our motorcycle lives started in 2008 when we purchased a new white Honda VTX 1300. It soon became apparent the VTX was NOT a touring bike. In 2011 purchased a 2008 white GL1800 with only 2,300 miles on it. This bike was sold in 2018 with over 120K miles and a new white 2018 was purchased. As of August 2019, this bike has over 27K smiling miles on it. Being GWRRA members has enabled us to visit places we probably would not have gone had it not been for GWRRA.

We joined GWRRA in 2011 and while we’re relatively new to riding we have become fully immersed in Chapter Life and all the fantastic benefits GWRRA has to offer. We’ve attended each Wing Ding since 2011 and have volunteered to work at all of them. We look forward to each rally and event with an eye out for reconnecting with old friends and expanding our extended family with new folks we meet. We also enjoy volunteering at chapter, district, and region events.

Our goal as District Directors is to maintain and increase our membership by providing fun and educational activity offerings for Indiana. We’ve got THE Team in place to make this goal a reality. Come join us for the RIDE!!!!!!
