The STAR Touring & Riding Association is a proud organization, steeped in tradition, camaraderie and family values. Many of our members have elected to show their pride in membership by wearing the International Association colors (back patch and rockers). In order to establish a sense of uniformity, the STAR Touring & Riding Assoc. has established the following guidelines for wearing of patches.
The Patches may be sewn on your jacket, however the most popular choice has been to sew the patches on a black leather vest. The style of vest may vary, but the most commonly used are unadorned by fringe, conches or additional coloring.
The large STAR Touring & Riding patch is to be sewn on the back, centered, leaving enough room for the Chapter rocker (approximately two inches tall) No patch shall be manufactured to be fitted to the top of the large STAR Touring & Riding Assoc. logo back patch. The Chapter rocker will be sewn directly beneath the large back patch. There must not be any gap between the large back patch and the rocker (they must be flush together). When done properly, the two patches will take on the appearance of one piece.
The small arm/vest patch should be sewn on the front of the vest over the left breast, being sure to place it at a slight angle (this will insure that it will hang straight while being worn). Small rockers denoting your position within the Chapter (President ect.) bike name, or custom rocker will be sewn below the small patch. Again care must be taken to prevent gaps between the patch and the rockers.
STAR Vets patches should be placed on the right side of the vest, also placed at a slight angle (to ensure proper alignment while being worn). Branch of Service marks, are designed to be fitted to the bottom of the Star Vets logo patch. Hash Marks can also be ordered for placement under the Branch of Service, once again leaving no gap. Chapter logo patches may also be placed here if you are not eligible for the Star Vets
