    DESCRIPTION FOR ALL EVENTS:

    Motorcycle Sport Touring Association's Largest regional rally comes to Marietta, Ohio,

    Monday, August 23 through Sunday, August 29.



    Come for the whole week or any part-

    Every day is a riding day, with social time in the evenings. Most people arrive on Thursday, ride for 2 days and go home on Sunday. Saturday is the biggest riding day, so even if you only come for the weekend, you'll have a great day of riding with lots of fun folks. If you have time to attend Monday-Wednesday, you will experience a relaxed, small rally atmosphere where it's very easy to meet and get to know people.



    Expect the parking lot to be empty during the day-
    Everyone will be out riding the twisty roads of SE Ohio and West Virginia. There are no large organized group rides. You can choose one of the official routes, create your own, go sightseeing or whatever strikes your fancy. Ride solo, with friends in small groups or sign up with one of the open groups if you are looking for someone to ride with.



    Routes-

    We've got 25+ routes available in GPS files and printable PDF format- over 4000 miles of superb riding. There are currently 5 Adventure routes available with more to come.



    Dining-
    Monday-Thursday, there will be Dinner Tours to nice restaurants downtown. Wecarpool and use other transportation to get everyone downtown and back so that they don't have to gear up and ride their bikes into town.

    Friday and Saturday, we are NOT having included meals for 2021. Many attendees like to ride long routes on the weekend and would rather catch a bite to eat on the fly. This year's venue has 10+ restaurants within close walking distance. If you want to dine at the Outdoor Lounge, just go online or phone the Wings Etc Grill & Pub- They have a full menu of tasty sandwiches and entrees and deliver for $3 per order.

    Saturday Night Closing Ceremony-
    At the 8PM closing ceremony we will have door prizes from Lemon & Barrett'sPowersports of Parkersburg, WV.



    Outdoor Lounge- Wednesday-Saturday, our trademark "Outdoor Lounge" will be located at the South end of the Hampton Inn on a nice patio. We'll have lots of chairs and some popups with tables so you can relax with friends.



    T-Shirts-
    You can order event shirts during online registration up to August 10. Shirt orders not paid for by that date will be cancelled. There will will be no extra shirts available at the event so be sure to order early.



    Free Therapeutic Massage- Twenty minute mini-massages will be available Thursday-Saturday.



    Bike Wash-
    Water hoses and towels will be available. MSTA member and detailing expert Jeremy Riffle, owner of Vehicle Enhancements, Inc. of Dayton, OH, will be on hand with tools and detailing supplies to answer your questions about cleaning and finish protection for your bike.



    Lee Parks Total Control Advanced Rider Clinic-
    MSTA's own Helene Villemure will be offering courses on the weekend proceeding FlyBy Week.

    Hello,
    Was looking at the website, and wanted to take a look at the routes, but none of the download links work. Is the site broken? I was trying to get the GPS but the PDF did not seem to work either.

    Wanted to check things out as it sounded interesting.

    Thanks!
    Mike

    I've been an MSTA member since the mid 80s, and attended this event many years. It's one that I never miss now. Great twisty scenic roads in S.E. Ohio, then cross the border into W.V for more twisties, more scenery. Lots of routes of varying lengths, most with optional lunch stops. Some challenging routes with lots of twisties, some based on scenery like covered bridges, even dual sport adventure routes. Many times at this point in late August when it has been so hot for so long, the weather seems to break that weekend and cool off. That wasn't the case last year and rain was forecast every day, but those are forecasts and we rode every day and had minimal riding in the rain.
