Louisiana / Ride Planning Thread Remainder of 2018
« Last post by NinjaBob on Today at 06:43:53 PM »
If anybody has MSTA ride plans for the rest of the year feels free to post up here. I have had a few members contact me asking if I knew who had plans.


MINE:I am planning to attend the Bull Shoals event, sharing a room with Jim G. Stacie and I are making a week long trip to TN, KY, NC & GA first week of August (No MSTA event) I May go to Hill Country but still pondering the Edelweiss Ducati MotoGp tour of Spain. I probably won't go if Marquez has already wrapped up the title by the time I need to book, which is looking very likely.

STAR 2018 / Re: STAR 2018 Full survey results

Come on guys, you have got to know with out being told that dealers take bikes as trade ins. New or used you can trade a bike to a dealer.
Yes Jon that is true. But we are talking about two different things, exchanging a prize for something else versus trading in something. Taking the new bike and using as a trade in is FAR DIFFERENT than the option to put the winnings toward a different bike. For me to trade in something, first I must own it - YES?????
Yep, pretty shocked that anybody sees them as the same thing.

Sure I could win the bike, take possession, ride or ship it home (once properly titled and registered) and then trade it, now a used bike worth less than when it was new. Or I could try going to the dealer the club purchased it from and work out something with them. But that is on the bike winner, and not anything the club has worked out as part of the raffle and bike purchase from dealer/manufacturer.

STAR 2018 / Re: STAR 2018 Full survey results

I am also a member of the Porsche Club of America. They run multiple raffles per year for brand new Porsches (tickets cost significantly more than MSTA's). The prize includes the car plus an amount of cash that would, according to my calculations, cover nearly all of the tax bill.  The rules also specify that in states where it is legal, the winner may take a cash prize instead (which is closer to the car value, and not the car + cash value).

They also cap the number of raffle tickets per prize. When a certain sales threshold is reached, they add another prize. They typically give away 3 or 4 cars in a raffle.

Now, I'm not sure that these strategies would translate at all to our much smaller club, or to prizes of order $10k instead of $80k+. In fact, I doubt very much that adding prizes based on ticket sales would work for us. But I offer these as examples of varying raffle ideas. Maybe these can help us achieve a more profitable raffle.

I've had 2 Honda mowers for 30 years, the only ones I have ever owned. However, neither is quite that fast.  :^)   TM

Ditto to what Jon said but I have seen members actually post that they weren’t buying raffle tickets because they didn’t like that year’s bike.........go figure? -JEP-

STAR 2018 / Re: STAR Attendance - 2012 - 2018

Dan Igoe suggested that I include STAR attendance compared to membership numbers, so that has been added to the chart. Note 2018 uses 2017 numbers since 2018 is not over yet.

We should just do East and West STAR's and not go back to Vermont  ;D
