Are YOU a BMW MOA member?

As many of us know, one of the perks of being an MOA member is the "Anonymous Book". We carry it and hope we never need it.

Today I learned second hand (and was partly involved) how it works. The important part here is not that a member used it for assistance. The important part is the extent that those who helped went to! I may "up" my levels of assistance after today. A special thanks to all those who have responded to call for help from the use of the Anonymous Book.

Here's what happened and how quick it was fixed: http://ourbmw.wordpress.com/2012/06/...r-network-but/

Re: Are YOU a BMW MOA member?

Yes.
I just read your story over there. I had my own similar adventure earlier this year, and offers from advrider to help, and a bmwsporttouring member rode 420 miles round trip on a Sunday to lend me a part.
So, thanks to BMWMOA and the anonymous book. But you don't have to be a member to help someone. Nor do you have to be in the anonymous book to help someone.

The Anonymous Book just happened to be the tool at his disposal.

Re: Are YOU a BMW MOA member?

I have been a BMW MOA member for 30 years. I used the anonymous book once & I have seen it used a few times. We were on our way home from Zephyrhills , Florida were we spend our winters. The trailer we use for our LT/Hannigan rig had the skin on the driver side start to peal off. That was at Acworth GA. We called one of the numbers for that city & drove over to his car shop. He helped me get the skin put back on the trailer good enough to get back to Michigan.

One time I was with some guys out for a ride to Colorado. One of the guys drive shaft broke, & a guy from the anonymous book in Montrose CO took the drive shaft out of his bike so he could finnish the trip & get back home.

The anonymous book is a real nice think to have with you, I don't leave home with out it
