Chapter Ride Information - Routes and Maps

January 2021 Ride:

01/10/21 - Borrego Springs, CA


We will meet at Siggy's (next door to Temecula Motorsports) at 8:30 AM, with KSU at 9:00 AM (w/ full gas tanks).

When you come to the monthly ride you are expected to wear appropriate riding gear.  This includes a DOT certified helmet, eye protection, over the ankle boots, and gloves.  Your bike should be in safe operating condition with good tire tread and proper inflation.  You should also arrive with a full tank of gas to start the ride.  Gas stops are normally planned approximatley 100 miles apart, or less.


If it's your first time riding with STAR, you'll need to fill out a ride waiver (see below).  You can download one from this website, fill it out, and bring it with you, or you can pick one up from a chapter officer at the ride.  You will need to show proof of your motrocycle endorsement (driver's license), as well as proof of insurance.


We usually meet at Temecula Motorsports at 8:30 AM, 30 minutes before they open for business.  You can ask someone at their front desk where STAR Chapter 527 is meeting.  We also do breakfast meetings before our chapter rides at any one of Temecula's fine restaurants.
