  President's Message

Welcome to Star Touring and Riding Chapter 230!

If you are looking to make new friends who love motorcycles, go interesting places, ride in an organized and courteous manner, and take safety/skill improvement seriously, you may have found the right place.

Our Chapter was formed in 2002 and currently has over 100 members. As a Chapter of STAR Touring and Riding, we subscribe to their mission statement (which can be found on their website www.startouring.org).  We are acutely aware that Southern California riding presents some challenges and we always attempt to keep safety first, while maintaining a fun level of riding together. 

We ride the first Saturday of every month; unless it’s a holiday or there is inclement weather.  Under these circumstances we may move the ride to the following weekend.  We meet at Mission Motorsports at 1 Doppler, Irvine, CA.  We begin with a meeting at
8 am and follow that with the ride.  Our rides average 275 miles. 

During our meeting and at several fund-raisers during the year we hold raffles of items that have been donated by chapter members or our supporters.  With the money raised during these raffles, we support our local charity, and our national charity, Feed the Children. 

We have Bike Nights every fourth Thursday at Portillo's Hot Dogs in Buena Park from 5:30-7:30 pm. The location for the Bike Nights is published on our chapter Facebook page (Star_Touring OrangeCounty), on the Event Calendar, and via email. We also have several overnight rides, a holiday party, and many more events during the year which can be found on the Event Calendar on our website, www.star230.com.

We welcome all riders, all ages, all abilities, and all bikes.  Even though we are primarily a Yamaha sponsored organization, we welcome bikes of all makes and models.  If you are interested in learning more about us, please take a look at our website (www.star230.com) and our Facebook page (Star Touring OrangeCounty).  For additional information, please feel free to contact me.
