Once upon a time, not long ago, I met my knight in shining armor and although he wasn't riding a white horse, he WAS riding a white Royal Star. Thus started a passion for riding that I now share with him. Feeling the wind on my face, enjoying the scenery as we hug the corners and feeling as free as can be, I have learned a great many things as his passenger. I have also, along with so many positives where riding is concerned, gained many friends through the association he is in, and has been a member of for a while now. I have built this website to share with members, the pictures I take of Star and events, activities, functions, etc...Star is part of my STAR GAZING. Here's to all the motorcycle enthusiasts out there!!!!
"Four wheels may drive the body, but two wheels drive the soul!" Take care of yourselves, and each other, and thanks for being you!

Temiskaming Shores and area's Chapter is 5106 of which Kim Campbell is President, and Kevin Matheson is North Ontario Provincial Director. Our Chapter presently has members from New Liskeard, Earlton, Englehart, Cobalt, North Cobalt, Haileybury and area townships to mention a few. Our members invest much time and effort into having a positive impact on our community by offering to volunteer and provide support for many community events, fundraisers and a greal lot more. People who are part of this group also aim to support each other. In the midst of doing all of what they do on a regular and on-going basis, they hope to have a huge hand in possibly changing perhaps pre-conceived notions that bikers are rebellious, disruptive and imposing in otherwise calm and respectable communities to a more open and inviting attitude. Their incredibly positive impact and influence on this community stands out like a shooting star. Without this group of giving and caring people, there wouldn't be that significant influence this area recognizes as a compliment to the Tri Town, Temiskaming Shores area. Northern Ontario has always been known as a welcoming place to visit and having Star Touring and Riding add a certain "je ne sais quoi" serves to reinforce that opinion.

One of the several events Star Touring and Riding has a great presence at is the Bikers Reunion. This is an event that is put together to raise funds for cancer research and to support families who are dealing with the reality of the illness. Be sure to sign our "In memory of..."
wall to pay tribute to those affected by the illness we are fighting so hard to beat, as a community.
