Motorcycle Sport Touring Association
Founded in 1982, the primary purpose of the club is to bring together riders whose focus is motorcycle sport touring regardless of type or brand of motorcycle. Members range in age from late teens to late eighties, with a median age between 35 and 45, and include virtually all socioeconomic strata. The majority of our members ride sport touring bikes.
MSTA members consider themselves true enthusiasts and are often found riding when weaker souls are grounded by 'bad weather'. The club differs from some other groups in that most of its members don't care for riding in large groups and, once a destination has been selected, will split into twos and threes, each group selecting their own pace and routes. In addition to local gatherings in most states each month, many other activities, such as MSF rider courses, campouts, overnighters are regularly organized. Highways, canyons or even off road -- wherever or however, MSTA has members who do your kind of riding.
The emphasis of our Association is in making friends, learning more about our sport, and in making our motorcycling trips more pleasant and meaningful. We promote "excellence and safety in the enjoyment of motorcycle sport touring", and are always trying to learn how to be better, safer riders. We believe that enjoying the road on the way to a destination is as important as arriving at the destination.
