Membership Enhancement Coordinators


Dan & Mary Costello -  Membership Enhancement 


Mary and I joined GWRRA in April 2004 after moving to our present home. It started when I purchased a 1977 GL-1000 “project bike”. Shortly after purchasing the GL-1000, we joined GWRRA and began participating with NJ-F. In short order Mary decided that she was not going to ride the “old” bike I was working on. Luckily for me she added that we should purchase a newer and larger Goldwing, like the other NJ-F members owned. Our search was short and quick as we located and purchased a 1999 Pearl-White GL-1500 from a fellow NJ-F member and then purchased an Escapade trailer from a second NJ-F member. We attended region rallies and Wing Dings and put over 25,000 safe miles on this combination. In 2008 we purchased and became the proud owners of a new Pearl-White GL-1800. We currently are participating with NJ-H and have almost 40,000 safe miles on the GL-1800.

We will be celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary this June, just prior to our travels to Wing Ding. Mary has recently retired from the Public Education System as an Elementary School Principal. Dan is an Engineering Consultant with a Mechanical Engineering background.

To make retirement more comfortable, we recently purchased a Class A Motorhome for our vacationing and travel across the US. We also added a family member this year with the arrival of Molly, our Newfie pup that travels with us. We will now be towing our Goldwing behind the Motorhome and not bringing the Escapade trailer, but Molly will soon travel in style with her very own trailer.

We joined GWRRA in 2004 and have held various positions and enjoyed our time in each. We are proud to be a part of the GWRRA University Training Program. We are both Master Level Leadership Trainers, Rider Ed Seminar Presenters and Membership Enhancement Program Presenters. We are also OCP instructors since the initial rollout in 2010.

As your Region B Membership Enhancement Coordinators we look forward to growing our GWRRA family by meeting more members within the Region B area. We look forward to working with all of you in Region B to promote the true meaning of GWRRA, namely FUN, SAFETY and KNOWLEDGE.

Feel free to contact us via email, phone with any questions.
