New member, ST1100 rider in Richmond, VA
« on: January 28, 2021, 07:26:18 PM »
Hello, all. I just joined up, after seeing a reference on the ST Owners forum. I'm looking for more weekend group rides nearer to me than they provide.

I'm interested in attending the Shenandoah Spring Romp in April. Can anyone please direct me to someone to contact for more information about this?

I'm 65 yrs old, been riding for over 47 years, only on my fifth bike, a 2001 ST1100. I still have my fourth bike, too, a "dressed" 1996 Nighthawk 750.

Hello Larry,

Welcome to MSTA. Check out the Dan Clark Safety Program on this forum.  This program is designed for our members when they purchase Safety Gear.

You can also read previous articles in the STAReview for more information.
Here’s the link to the Dan Clark Safety Program information...

Nice looking ST1100.  I have a 2002 ST1100 with less than 15,000 miles.

Not sure how many MSTA members are in the Richmond area, but the best way to get local rides going is to do some yourself and invite people to attend. Having a way to communicate with local members (FB, an email list, or other online community) is key to getting things going.

We have a decent size group around me here in Cleveland-Akron Ohio but very few who will plan things, I think that goes for most areas. And those who currently plan things are often burned out after doing it for years.

Hey Larry -  I just joined too, well actually last year but just now got my login working.  I will see you at OH-STOC in June and immediately after leaving Portsmouth I will be heading to Canaan Valley for the STAR event and camping 3 nights there.  I am assisting with route planning for the STAR event as well.

Excellent! I've been thinking nobody sees my posts.  I've been looking for a room/bed in a cabin, because I don't want to stay in the lodge.

Do you have any suggestions, please?

Larry I can ask a couple of people I've been in contact with about routes if they know of any "cabin masters" (ST-OWNERs term).  I've reserved Primitive campsite #1 for Su-M-Tu for myself.

If I hear anything I'll let u know.

Thanx for the reply. My body isn't up to camping anymore.

Plus, I intend to make brownies again, so I need a kitchen.
