2017 District Couple of the Year
Joe and Janel Piper
We are Joe and Janel Piper; the new Georgia District Couple of the Year for 2017. This past year has been a whirl wind as not only are we Chapter S Couple of the Year for 2016, but also new Chapter Directors. It has been an amasing journey since joining GWRRA just three short years ago.

When we singed up for our initial membership, never in our wildest dreams did we think that we would be gaining a family. We have more friends now than we did during our pre-GWRRA life! GWRRA is so much more than a good magazine!

So, who are we? We are a couple that simply enjoys riding a Gold Wing. We get lots of attention when we ride down the highway, because our 1994 1500 Wing is teal in color. We dubbed her the Bermuda Pearl along with her matching trailer affectionately known as Calypso; it makes lots of folks take a second glance.

When we aren't riding, we have filled our retirement days with whatever strikes our fancy. Being grandparents to five grandsons and one granddaughter all under the age of 8 can keep us pretty busy following them on Facebook and Skype. At times, we have our youngest grandson spending time with us. He is the only one that actually lives in Georgia. The other grandkids reside in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Joe enjoys tinkering in the garage, watching westerns on TV or working on antique mantel clocks. Janel enjoys creating quilts and can spend hours quilting in her sewing room.

We love being a part of the GWRRA family. You are never a stranger and our circle of friends just keeps growing and growing. We are honored to be the 2017 Georgia District Couple of the Year and are looking forward to saying Hi to everyone when we come to visit!
