I am a new Strom owner (2007 1000). I live in Grass Valley-Nevada City area and am looking for people that can ride on weekdays as well as weekends. I am a fireman and every eight weeks with my shift changes I can only ride on weekdays.
Fireman, check the "Regional Club rides" section from the main page, which covers CA and many western states. You have some great riding all around you by the way so it shuldn't be any trouble finding riding buddies.
