Raffle Bikes at STAR 2016

By now most of you know that our primary raffle bike for this year’s STAR in Stratton, VT is a 2016 BMW F800GT.  Your odds of winning this bike in OUR raffle are far greater than most simply because a relatively small number of tickets compete for the prize.

What you probably don’t know is that this year we’re giving away TWO bikes. In addition to the awesome BMW F800GT, we’ll be giving away a super fun 2015 Honda Grom on the same raffle tickets!

gromThat’s right, your raffle ticket purchase makes you eligible to win either bike . The winning ticket for the BMW will be drawn first and then another ticket will be drawn for the winner of the Grom.  The winners of the raffle bikes will be drawn at the STAR member’s banquet on June 29th. You do not have to be present to win either of the bikes but you must be a current member of MSTA to participate in the raffle.

Ya hoo! Your odds of winning a motorcycle at STAR just doubled! Raffle tickets are discounted to $8 until April 15th May 15th and can be purchased here: http://www.planetReg.com/MSTARaffle2016

Oldies but Goodies – June 28, 2015

June 28, 2015 – Sunday

ON SUNDAY JUNE 28 we will have a ride starting from the Mobil gas station just south of 69 on Lapeer Road at 9.30 am. This ride started out for vintage bikes with vintage riders but people have expressed interest in coming along. So I am inviting all of you to come along. We are going to Caseville and then around the thumb to the Port Hope Hotel for lunch and then down to Port Huron and then to Algonac. This is a ride for everyone. Maps and routes will be given out at the gas station. This starting point was chosen for all people on the west side and northern riders. Hope to see you there.
