Re: Is being a member of BMW MOA worth it?
I'd pay twice that much just for the security I get with the Anonymous book (don't tell anyone from MOA).
I've only had to use it once, but that once was worth a LOT..
500 miles from home, I lose my wallet.. 2 phone calls.. #1 Answering Machine.. #2 Human on the other end, a little ways away, will be there in an hour..
20 minutes later #1 shows up.. was working on his roof when he came in he checked his machine.. He buys me a coke and something to eat, offers to pay my way home, but tell him I'm waiting for #2 to show up.. I'd hate for them to travel all the way there to find me gone..
#2 shows up as planned.. Asks what I need.. $20 for gas to get me home, that's ALL I need. He hands me $50.. And tells me stop on the way home to get something hot to eat.
Look around the BMWMOA website.. you'll find HUNDREDS of similar stories.. and stories of who MAY be in there.. Anonymous like the rest of us.. (Ted Koppel is a local rumor)
Yeah.. extra insurance for $40 a year.. The best money I've EVER spent.
