Does everyone wear a black leather vest?

While this is the most popular choice, allowing your patch and ride pins to be displayed over a variety of riding apparel, members also wear jackets and other types of vests.

Just keep it G-rated, it's a family crowd.

Where can I get STAR Patches?

Your Chapter will provide a back patch and rocker.

You can order additional patches through the STAR Touring web site (you must be logged in).

Do some STAR patches need to be approved?


Some STAR office and position rockers need to be ordered by the chapter. See your Chapter executives when ordering these patches, they will take care of it for you!

Can I put other organizations patches on my vest?


While many of us are supporters of other groups and associations only with prior approval from the Chapter President (and STAR Touring) can they even be considered.

Is the vest and patch 'colors'?


We are a 'one patch' riding Association - a riding focused group. The patch is meant to show pride in membership and camaraderie with fellow STAR members.

Where your patches go:

The STAR back patch should be placed in the center of the back of the vest.

The chapter rocker should be placed flush to the bottom of the back patch leaving no gap, which will give the appearance of a one-piece design.

Wing patches (Vet Win, LOS Wing, Tin Star Wing or Starfire Wing) may be placed either above or below the back patch and rocker.

No rocker or patch will be designed to fit flush at the top of the back patch. NO EXCEPTIONS

The small STAR arm/vest patch should be placed on the left side of the chest in line with the center of the arm. The patch should be placed at a slight angle while lying flat. It is designed to be straight while the vest is on.

Small rockers (bike name, chapter position or custom design) should be placed flush to the bottom of this patch, again leaving no gap. The arm/vest patch may also be put on the left sleeve of your jacket.

STAR Vets patch should be placed on the right side of the chest directly across from the arm/vest patch, and must also be put on at a slight angle. The Branch of Service is laser-cut to fit against the bottom of the patch. The bottom of this rocker should hang in line with the bottom of the vest.

Chapter patches can be placed on the left if you are not a STAR Vet; we have additional patches that may also be placed here.

If you have the STAR Vet patch you may place the chapter patch in a location of your choice keeping in mind the guidelines above.

You may find the right side of your vest to be the best place for ride pins - the more of them the better!

Can't sew on leather?

The Tailor (Best Embroidery, booth 243) in Zerns Farmer's Markets (Gilbertsville PA) will sew patches on, generally while you wait, for a very low price.
