STAR Touring Member Advantages

Dear Star Owner,

We would like to invite you to be part of an established and exciting family motorcycle organization. Formally recognized by Yamaha Motor Corporation, the STAR Touring and Riding Association is now celebrating its tenth year of success.

STAR is an international organization which was created to serve owners and enthusiasts of the Yamaha Star Line of motorcycles including the Yamaha Star Venture, Royal Star, Road Star, Road Star Warrior & V-Star's. And like the Star Line, having fun is what we're all about.

The Star Line, as we all know, is a very special piece of hand crafted art; a modern motorcycle with a classic rich appeal. Since you've purchased a Star, we know you can discern quality when you see it. STAR Touring and Riding Assoc. was created to meet the special needs of those privileged enough to own a Star, and STAR Touring is a quality organization. You are invited to join this elite family association.

STAR Touring provides superior member service. We are here to support the needs of our membership and serve as a positive voice in the motorcycle community. We offer the latest Star motorcycle news, product information, reviews, service advice and technical tips. We will also keep you up-to-date on the ever-popular STAR DAYS our national yearly event.

If you choose, we can provide you contact information to other Star owners in your area. You'll be able to participate in organized group rides, have get-togethers, etc.  Look for more information on this and other exciting events via the STAR World-Wide-Web Site ( and our publication, the STAR News.

Sign up today because you don't want to miss our next magazine that is full of Star Line information.

Membership is free with the full STAR membership. (You must submit a LOS application.)

Over one hundred years ago, small towns on the American frontier knew that there was one person they could turn to for help in an emergency, the local sheriff. The frontier sheriff was a combination police officer, and emergency coordinator identified by his distinctive "Tin Star" badge. STAR Touring, like the citizens of the frontier towns, at times need special assistance. People trained as police officers, physicians, nurses, fire fighters, and paramedics, EMTs, or Search and Rescue fill this role. To help identify chapter members that have this special training, we have developed a special badge, the "Tin Star." The Tin Star readily identifies members who are qualified to be of assistance.   You must submit a Tin Star application along with proof of emergency/first aid training. If you qualify, it is included in your subscription.

Another rapidly growing facet of STAR is STAR VETS.  This is the part of STAR Touring that recognizes and honors the many people that have served our country.  To become part of STAR VETS you have to be currently serving in the Armed Forces or have served in the past and be able to provide proof of service. If you currently are serving in the military, all we need is a "Letter of Service" from your Command Personnel office. It must be on letterhead, list the years and months you have been in the Armed Forces and be signed by your commander. If you are retired or have left the military service, all we need is a copy of your DD-214 or Discharge papers.
