This column is to honor the State Directors whose drive and personality improves the quality of life of their state MSTA members.
STAReview Magazine (SRM): What prompted you to join the MSTA and how long have you been in a member?
Zarras: I was hunting around the web sites and came upon the HSTA forum run off the micapeak.com site. It provided a casual spot to talk to like-minded motorcyclist. I was impressed with their knowledge and also the commentary was dignified. Not the media hype type of topics and language found on some forums. In the summer of 2007 I wrote an article for STAReview titled “Riding Disabled.” In January 2008 I was recruited to become an Editor at Large, which at my then 264-pound weight I was eminently qualified for. I have now trimmed down to 208 pounds. I became a Feature Editor in February 2008. In May 2012 I became Managing Editor.
