I've met some members of the Second Mile Riders which are an Omaha branch of the Christian Motorcyclists Association. Here is some information:

From times I've seen them at various events, it appears they have all kinds of motorcycles. I remember reading in the Omaha World-Herald of their Sturgis Aid Station in Missouri Valley.

There are three chapters of Southern Cruisers in Nebraska. Might give them a look.

You're talking to air.

Rocky: Why a club seems to me that you don't have the time to dedicate to a traditional Motorcycle Club. If what you are looking for is a group of like minded (and like busy) riders, you might look up your local ABATE chapter meetings. ABATE is a M/C rights group that attracts all manner of rider, and is usually not brand oriented. Or you could just attend Poker Runs and Rallys in your area and meet new people there who could develop into riding buddies .
point being that there are other ways to meet other riders in your peer group,other than attaching yourself to a "club" and all that that can entail. However the CMA suggestion is a good one. Enjoy the ride, and get out there where riders gather and extend yourself and meet new people. That would be my suggestion. Good luck, and be careful. Ride AWARE!

I'd agree with CosmicCowboy (us 1100 ACE riders gotta stick together). The Southern Cruisers could be just what your looking for. Can check them out on the web, I imagine it's southerncruisers.net or something like that, and you can go to the state chapter websites and check them out to see if it's something interesting. Here you go http://www.scrcnational.com/chapters...state=Nebraska

Definately a riding club and not a motorcycle club, believe it or not there's a big difference.
