Cleveland STAR Chapter 178 is a local Chapter within the International STAR Touring and Riding Association. Our 178 STAR Chapter is located in Cleveland Ohio and began in 2001.
We are a group of motorcycle enthusiasts, like yourself, that enjoy motorcycle riding. If you want to meet great people, go on great rides, see new sites, and have a good time, we’d like to meet you.
Since our beginning in 2001, we’ve grown but have retained that small group atmosphere. We welcome all brands of motorcycles. Consumption of alcoholic beverages on sanctioned chapter rides is prohibited. We encourage new and interested Motorcyclists to attend a few meetings, join us on a few rides and experience “STAR 178” prior to joining our group.
After experiencing our chapter you can then apply to join us as a new member. You must first become a member of STAR Touring and Riding before joining our chapter. If you buy a new 1300 or above, you receive a 1 year membership from Star Motorcycles. We start riding in April (weather permitting) on the 2nd Saturday and the 4th Sunday of each month. We have monthly meetings to discuss rides, up-coming events, chapter business and to socialize. Some of our rides have been to Amish country, the Mohican area, Olgelbay, and Cabellas in W.V., Marblehead, AMA near Columbus, and Quaker Steak in Sharon, PA.
We encourage good riding skills and take pride in modeling exceptional behavior. We have a lot of fun together as a group, and we are a family organization where children are always welcome.
