SoCal Strom Group

I created a group for SoCal Stroms based on the group ride interest as a way to get riders together, hope this helps, plus there's a NorCal so we can't get shown up:

Long Beach

Hi from Long Beach, where the sewer meets the sea!

I just bought a liter 'strom. Second bike right now, the other being a klr650. Been riding all my life, and am looking forward to riding with some of you! Just be patient, old age has slowed me a bit!

Better to ride a little slow than get a ticket like I did last weekend at Anza-Borrego

Once we get the members established we should think about trying to find a route that works for the majority and move from there.

Thanks for joining

I'm from Lomita.
I organize for the "South Bay Motorcycle Riders" group on meetup.com.
Last Sunday we had a dozen bikes and we all rode to Neptune's near Zuma and then to the rock store.
It's free to join the club, and I usually schedule a ride a month, or more.
I would like to get some stroms in the group.
Our clubs could perhaps overlap a bit eh?

I have signed up as well, but what good does it do? Is there some private group that we can post to? Automatic email notifications? What?

I am in Orange County and am up for a reasonably short ride, <200 miles.

Sounds good to me too!

I think its still beneficial to maintain a list of V-Stroms in SoCal here though so people on the website know who's local to speak/ride/talk too as well.

Not to hijack your thread Jayhawk, but I thought I would give you all the link to join the meetup group I run.
It is free!
And its a great way to meet fellow riders.

Hope you don't mind. We have 200 members already, but a few Stroms wont hurt!!!!!

look under Community up on the tool bar... go to Social Groups and look for SoCal Stromers... that's a message board SoCal rider specific
