I've been a member of the sportbike assoc. for about a year I guess. I just moved here about a year and a half ago. We ride A LOT! I got my R6 in May of this year and put about 3000 miles on it to date. We have organized rides once a month but we also have 'just for the hell of it rides' among some of the members every weekend. Anywhere from 5 - 10 guys show up, I'm usually the only chick but there are a few others that show from time to time.
You should definitely check it out. I think it's $25/per year for a membership.
I'm with you, I'd much rather be on 2 wheels than a board but ya gotta make the best of the snow!
