STAR Touring & Riding is a family oriented group of motorcycle enthusiasts, spread throughout the world. For more information please go to STAR Touring & Riding.
We are the local chapter of STAR Touring & Riding (the international organization), located in Temecula, CA, and our primary intention is to have fun while riding our motorcycles. Chapter 527 supports the STAR Touring & Riding mission statement.
Can I ride with Chapter 527 (Temecula) without joining STAR?
Yes you can, for awhile. You can ride with us three times without joining STAR. However, by the 4th ride you will need to join STAR if you wish to continue riding with us.
No, all types of motorcycles are welcome.
Simply participate in at least three chapter rides. This gives everyone the opportunity to get to know one another better. You are then eligible to be voted in at the next chapter meeting.
STAR Chapter 527 does not collect dues.
Of course you can. Our rides are organized and structured with safety for all riders as the #1 objective.
Yes, we review the hand signals and safety rules used throughout the ride prior to each ride. You will also be assigned to a Ride Shepherd for the first couple of rides. You will ride behind, and to the right, of your assigned Ride Shepherd, and will follow all hand signals and directions given by him/her.
Chapter rides are held the 2nd weekend of every month, on Saturday or Sunday.
Chapter rides start at 8:30 AM, and leave from Temecula Motorsports in Murietta, CA.
Chapter rides vary from 4 to 9 hours. Ride details are posted on the Rides page of this website.
No it is not. As a family oriented association, we maintain a no alcohol, and a no drugs policy.
Yes you do. The State of California requires that a DOT certified helmet must be worn by both rider and passenger.
Boots that cover your ankles, and gloves are recommended.
What is the difference between patches and rockers?
All STAR patches are obtained from STAR Touring & Riding. The small chapter rocker (front) and the large location rocker (back) are ordered through your Chapter President, once you become a chapter member. You can order all STAR related products through the STAR Touring & Riding website yourself.
Yes there is. You can open the PDF guide at the bottom of this page to see the appropriate placement.
No, this is not a requirement. However, there is a sense of belonging and pride that comes with showing your organization/chapter membership by wearing a vest/jacket with your organization/chapter patches and rockers on them.
You can wear them most anytime. However, please be aware that you are representing STAR Touring & Riding and STAR Chapter 527, and that we are a family oriented organization, whenever you are wearing your organization/chapter patches and rockers.
The October festivities start with Bike Nite at the Rainbow Oaks restaurant (Fallbrook), on Thursday (10/08), at 6 PM.
Then, it's a ride to the high desert and the Calico Ghost Town, followed by a stop at EddieWorld on Sunday (10/11), at 9:00 AM.
