Welcome to the Michigan MSTA
You have entered the site of the Michigan Squadron of the National Motorcycle Sport touring Association (MSTA). Our Members come from all over Michigan (and beyond), and we ride many makes of street bikes. We travel to great riding destinations close by and far away. We learn to be better riders, share camaraderie, and a common passion to ride. Come join us and be a part of the most dynamic riding club in Michigan.
Michigan MSTA - This ain't your mamma's pokey bar hoppin' motorcycle club. It also isn't a squidly club. We ride and we ride well. You are expected to ride within your limits. You are expected to wear appropriate safety gear, ride a safely maintained machine and follow reasonable group riding etiquette. We welcome riders of all skill levels, ages, genders, and marques. You will likely find like-minded members who ride at your level of skill. The MSTA and Michigan MSTA assume no responsibility for your safety, state of mind, average lean angle, or degree of rockin' fun that you'll experience with us.

Next Major MI MSTA Event
TOTM (Tip Of The Mitt), September 17-20.
A very unique ride heading north through rural Michigan to the community of Bellaire, in the northwestern part of the State. We will stay at the Bellaire Inn. So come and join a bunch of your fellow MSTA friends and enthusiasts to enjoy four full days of riding in Northwestern Michigan.
On Friday and Saturday you have your choice of riding off to Northport via Traverse City and then south to Leland (The Cove at Fishtown), or to St. Ignace (to cross the grand Mackinaw Bridge), or if you wish to avoid the bridge, head into Mackinaw City via Cross Village (Legs Inn) and then south to Cheboygan.
On Sunday we will head home, again riding the scenic by-ways of rural Michigan.

Next Major MSTA Event
FCR (Fall Colors Ride), September 24-27.
The event will center in Lewisburg, WV. Due to the distance to the event, we’re planning a little different approach for this ride. Michigan Squadron Members will travel to Marietta, OH on September 24. We’ll be staying the night there at the Microtel Inn and Suites. A group dinner at 7:00 PM is being arranged for those who arrive in time to take part. Following dinner – around 9:00 PM there will be a mandatory Rider’s Meeting at the motel, where we’ll discuss the next days’ ride and arrange our riding groups. On Friday, our groups will ride a twisty, turn filled route from there to Lewisburg. Saturday, we’ll do an event route and Sunday will be a quick 250 mile return to the trailers in Marietta for the homeward pull back home.
You can register for this MSTA event by mail-in form (a copy is at the end of the August 2015 Newsletter), or online at the following address: http://www.planetreg.com/E31914837152313.
