Attention SW Ontario V-Strom Riders - Owners Club?

I am giving some serious thought to setting up a V-Strom Owners Club for riders in the SW Ontario region and I wanted to guage whether there would be enough interest.
My initial thoughts are to have either a monthly or semi-monthly meet and greet at a venue somewhere in the Kitchener area, possibly "A Vicious Cycle" in New Dundee where we could share stories and ideas as they relate to V-Stroms and motorcycling. I hope that some of these meetings could be set up as tech days to learn how to do maintenance on our bikes, group rides, bbq's, etc.... An then in the winter months we could probably move the venue to a restuarant or something.
So what do you think, would you be interested? I am open to suggestions on how to develop this.
I am initially thinking that Saturday mornings would work best, as A Vicious Cycle would be open during this time and people could probably make the trip to pick up any gear they need too - that way we would have time for late morning or afternoon rides as well.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I would be interested in joining the group. Always a good time shooting the sh*t with other Strommers.

We interrupt this marriage to bring you the riding season.

I'm not exactly in the SW but am interested, could make a few meetings and group rides. I am currently a CVMG member but the group doesn't really ride. It would be great to see a group of v strommers getting together and planning rides long and short.

Id be interested.
One of the main reasons i surf this forum is to meet and ride with like minded people.
I'm in Acton, so not far at all.

Ok - that makes 3 of us. I was hoping the the response would have been a bit better. Anyway I will give it another week and see where we are at and then plan our first meet and greet.

I've also got a 2200 sq ft heated shop just North of Acton.
Full of general automotive tools and a car/motorcycle hoist.
Might be a good destination for a meet/install day.
I'm no motorcycle expert but learning as i go.

I would be interested. My work schedule doesn't allow me to have every weekend off. I would attend if time permits if that is ok.

...or...just start

Pick a Tim's and a time. See who attends. Go for a ride an hour later. Post some pictures. Set the next date and time (essential step!).

You might get three people out. It might grow from there. It might not, but there's nothing to lose and only the potential for gain.
