    I was wondering where in the Omaha area to look for riding gear?
    I know that Dillon's carries a little and I've been to Nebraska Motorcycle Parts.

    Do you guys have any suggestions as to where else to look for gear?

    I need to get riding pants and a different jacket this spring.

    Thanks.

    You will also find a small but high quality selection at Ducati Omaha.

    Full Throttle over in C.B. has a decent selection.

    The H-D dealers have plenty of stuff if you like black t-shirts and doo rags.

    I second BMW Omaha. I got my Olympia jacket and pants there.
    Great for the all season touring stuff. Ducati Omaha will have more sport oriented gear, and also great service.

    Sent from my fat thumbs on a small touch screen.

    Thanks for the info.

    I've been to BMW and they were a little rude to me. Don't know that I'll go there again.

    I might head over to Full Throttle tomorrow. Always enjoy going and checking out a new
    place to look at bikes and equipment.

    Jarel didn't tell me they were only getting ONE! I might have looked more seriously at it :wink:

    That is actually the one I would buy if I had the strom sold. Hopefully it'll go sooner than later.

    C'mon...buy my strom! :D

    Why not throw in a couple cases of homebrew as an incentive?

    I like rockabilly too. We are thinking of doing some Imelda May (search youtube), awesome rockabilly singer from Ireland.
