Roy B told me they tried to start one back in 2004 but didn't have the numbers at the time.
Nowadays, you can make a Facebook Group page for free (instead of a website) and do any payments via PayPal, and/or do it in conjunction with this site if that works for everyone. We would probably only need to have dues of $10-20 per year, and could probably get vendors to kick in some coupons and discounts to cover that. Perhaps have a roster of owners for emergency help, and maybe a monthly breakfast like YB does.
With the event scheduled in August in VT, and V-Strom turnout at events like Cromag (4 in 2008, 12 in 2010), maybe it's time? Does anyone see any benefit? What events or activities would be worthwhile?
There are several regional clubs that I see as good patterns. One is Yankee Beemers
(Eat to Ride, Ride to Eat), the other is BMW Motorcycle Owners of Vermont
I think V-Strom owners are more independent than most marquee club owners, so we would have to embrace that. To make it unique, maybe we could add our own cheerleading squad?
