I saw this rider group- New Sweden BMW Riders. They have 1 of the best websites and newsletters that I've seen in a long time. The group states they are open to all makes of bikes. They do a ride in May called the NS450 (New Sweden 450 mile), 2 day event with camping and food - sounds like a good deal. Haven't been to any meetings, but considering looking them up. Check out their website and read a few of the newsletters during the cold months.
