Motorcycle Sport Touring Association
TriSTAR Rally

May 23 - 27
Sparta, North Carolina

The name of this Rally says it all! TriSTAR is named for its unique location in Sparta, NC which is a quaint town located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Sparta NC is a stone’s throw from Virginia and Tennessee so riders can enjoy the beauty of all three states in the same ride.
Sparta is a small town with a population of about 2000. Despite its small size, there are plenty of things to do when not riding. Sparta has several restaurants, a great brewery, downtown shopping, and more.
Of course, riding is the highlight of coming to Sparta. Within a mile of the Alleghany Inn, our host hotel, the twisties begin and never end. Nearby riding attractions include the Back of the Dragon between Maron NC and Tazewell VA, the Blue Ridge Parkway accessed from either end of Sparta, Burkes Garden VA, and Shady Valley, gateway to the Snake. For people interested in ADV riding, there will be GPS Tracks available for three excellent ADV rides. You can either pick from one of the Road or ADV routes that are provided or simply explore the area. You won’t be disappointed!

Thanks to new Sparta resident and event coordinator Lou Laguna, TriSTAR will be moving from a J.F.F. gathering to a full rally, and there are other big changes coming. 
.  Just a few of the things to expect:
A covered outdoor lounge for gathering and socializing
Catered dinner on Saturday night
Free shuttle service to and from the local eateries on Thursday and Friday evening
Ice cream social on Sunday afternoon
