Interesting qualifier you added on there. Especially considering the threads that we have had recently regarding this very subject.

Meanwhile, somewhere in Michigan...

I'm lucky. There are riding groups around here. It's very informal. They use meetup.com to post their rides and get-togethers. If you want to go on the ride you RSVP and show up. I meet new people, get my biker fix and if their is drama, move on.

Garage
Meetup

I do the same thing. I don't "know" many people that ride but meetup is cool to find rides.

There is a difference between an MC and a riding club. Most MCs are gonna want you to prospect for at least a year. Complete devotion to the club is expected, sometime even over wife and life. A riding club is a group of people who meet up and ride every once in a while. They don't claim territory the was an MC does. All three options are valid. It just depends on your needs and what you are willing to put into it.
