THANK YOU for supporting the GS Giants and the Adventure Motorcycle Community!

A word from the new President

Dear Giants,

For those of you who don't know me, I joined the GS Giants back in 2014 after seeing a postcard at a BMW Dealership. My first GS Giants Rally was the Giants Stampede in 2015. It was then when I realized that the strength of this community is the selfless volunteerism and involvement of its members. Ever since I wanted to do more about this great organization and in the 2018 elections, the Giants trusted me with the role of the Vice President.

With our former president, Russ Kruse, stepping down, as noted in our bylaws, I automatically took over the presidency, a role I will delightfully hold until the next elections, in 2021. 

During my term, I am thankful to have mentors such as Lori Payne, Ian Schmeisser, our departing president Russ Kruse, and our very own Queen, Tracy Novacich. With their assistance and your involvement, I predict a greater future for the Giants.

Thank you for your trust! Stay dirty, my friends!

The location and dates for the 2020 GS Giants Go Big Rally are announced!

The Giants are going to the Northeast! August 6-9, 2020 at the Bobriwka Camp, in Colebrook, CT

Over 300 acres of beautiful forests, right at the borders of Connecticut and Massachusets, the GS Giants will meet again for the 2020 GS Giants Go Big Rally (Rock Lobster).

Our event host, Rob Nye, is rolling out the red carpet for us, guaranteeing an unforgettable event in the Northeast. 

We will post more details, but make sure you mark your calendars! This event WILL be sold out!


With our former Treasurer taking over the Vice President position, we now reach out to you, the Giants to help us with two available volunteer positions.

We are looking for a new Treasurer and someone to handle the store.

All applications will be considered and the Board of Directors will decide on the best fit as soon as possible. Please reach out to Lori Payne ( to express your interest.

Thank you!
