2019 Section Executive
No stranger to GPR Executive, Nancy Melcher has been a member of GPR since 2009. In her new role as President, she hopes to see more members attending regular meetings. “I don’t enjoy listening to the details of ‘business' and would prefer most meetings to be a social time for members.
Growing up on the Danforth, I started riding in 1967 (Yamaha YA-6) and kept at it. A varied work history (printer, elevator mechanic, custom painter, software guy, more) kept me busy while raising two kids with my lovely wife. A first move when I retired a while back was to build a bigger garage at our home in Maple and fill it with tools and bikes. You can usually find me there.
old, very thirsty EMC Puch split single 2 stroke circa 1961 which morphed into
a series of (not quite so thirsty) Triumph twins & probably more dependable
four cylinder Kawasakis. Known for being
ruggedly handsome & an ability to stretch the truth.
It all started in 1973 - one day I decided I wanted a motorcycle, so my neighbour taught me to ride on an H1 Kawasaki. I was pretty sure motorcycles weren't supposed to be that scary. Just to make sure I've owned a number of them - Kawasaki, BMW, Norton and Yamaha.
