Welcome to the BMW MOA Forum
Welcome to the BMW MOA forum. We'd like to help you get started on the right foot in the forums.
Here's a little checklist of things you can do right away that will get you into the swing of things:
[LIST][*]Fill out your Profile[*]Read the Posting Guidelines[*]Read the User Control Panel (CP) explained [*]Post a short introduction here[/LIST]
By filling out your profile, you make it possible for other members to help you out. Especially useful is supplying your location (eg, city and state). This will help responders know what resources, like dealers, vendors and events might be near enough to you to be worth suggesting. If you add your bike(s) to your signature, then it will help when you need to know something about them. You can access all of these features by clicking on the [B]UserCP [/B]link located at the top left of every forum page.
While nobody much enjoys reading the fine print, it is important that you understand that this is a PG environment. No trolling, bating or name calling. Also, with one exception, no SPAM is allowed on the forum; no politics, religion or other "hot button" topics are allowed AT ALL. The [url=http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/faq.php?faq=vb_faq#faq_postingguidelines]posting guidelines[/url] aren't that long, and you'll find them under the [B]FAQ [/B]link at the top left on every forum page.

If you have questions, you should feel free to ask here or send a private message (PM; again, under the UserCP area) to me, any of the moderators found [URL="http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/faq.php?faq=vb_faq#faq_modteam"]here[/URL], or to Darryl the Forum Liaison. They can definitely answer your questions and point you in the right direction. And if you have a great idea for the forum, don't hesitate to contact us.
Have a great time here and [I][B]welcome aboard[/B][/I]!
