BMW has supported owners clubs for a long time.

Suzuki is only just now putting any effort into the US organization. I've joined it. Thus far, no Strom-specific rallies. http://www.suzukiownersclub.org/usa/ There is a Suzuki rally in WV Sep 16-20.

Also considering a V-Strom club for New England. There are several very good clubs around like Yankee Beemers but some of the ringleaders there are insistent that it remain a BMW club. By contrast, BMW owners of VT doesn't care what you own: you pay, you ride, you vote. It may be time to start a V-Strom owners club in New England, whose primary purpose will be to provide better excuses to your wife about taking off on a weekend....

PLEASE ACCEPT MY RESIGNATION. I DON'T WANT TO BELONG TO ANY CLUB THAT WILL ACCEPT ME AS A MEMBER.

I will admit, the best thing about owning a BMW was the Chicago Region BMWMOA.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general...nicknames.html

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at https://www.stromtrooper.com/informa...-you-have.html
