Our Purpose: “To bring like-minded motorcycle sport-touring enthusiasts together as friends, and to promote our great sport through safe, responsible, and challenging ride experiences.”……Bob “Dog” Maddocks

The Motorcycle Sport Touring Association was founded in 1982 as the Honda Sport Touring Association as a chartered club of the AMA and now with the BMW Riders Association. The primary purpose of the club is to bring together riders whose focus is motorcycle sport touring, regardless of the type or brand of motorcycle. To reflect this non-specific brand emphasis, we changed our name to Motorcycle Sport Touring Association a few years ago.

While Sport Touring is out middle name, it’s really not all that we do. Adventure Touring, sport riding, track days, road racing, vintage bikes, dirt riding, restoration and collecting, etc. are all interests shared by many of our members. Motorcycles, and the people that love them, are what we are all about. We invite you to explore this website to find out more about us. Our history, our rallies, and especially our people.
