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

voice in the motorcycle community. We offer the latest Star motorcycle news, product information, reviews, service advice

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 (http://www.startouring.org/) and our publication, the STAR News.

TIN STAR TM
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.
