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.
MSTA MICHIGAN - 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.
See Breakfast link for time and location of monthly club meetings.
See Calendar link for scheduled 2014 events. Additional dates and events will be added when scheduled.

Tip of the Mitt
Tip of the Mitt. A very unique ride heading north through rural Michigan to the community of Bellaire, in the northwestern part of the State, where 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 between September (To Be Announced). 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. Contact: John Cirner (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Peter Stephan (pstephan15346MI@comcast.net)..
