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!
That’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
We now have a full featured classified ads system on the MSTA website. Do you have motorcycle related items laying around the garage that you don’t use? Don’t throw it away, let someone else give it the love it deserves and make some cash to boot!
Ads will run for 30 days and can be renewed if your item does not sell. The system notifies you by email when someone inquires about your ad. You also have the ability to modify your ad if you need to change something after it is posted.
As a buyer, you can browse or search ads in several different ways. You can also inquire about ads through the classified ads system. This is a much more user friendly experience than posting ads in the forum.
The direct link to the classified ads section is: http://ridemsta.com/srblog/classifieds/. You can also get there by clicking on the classifieds link in the top menu bar at www.ridemsta.com. Let’s sell and buy some stuff!
