There’s a reason “Sport Touring” is the MSTA’s middle name. STAR isn’t about shopping. Vendors are few and they generally close-up shop in the afternoons, too. It’s not about a slow-moving parade ride in one big group. There are numerous self-guided rides available, some as long as 300 miles, but riders tend to leave in clumps of a few to half a dozen, organizing themselves by preferred pace. And it’s not a gathering of motorcyclists for whom this is a passing phase.
