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.
