    Angry Disgruntled New Member...

    I'm disgruntled over the fact that we don't get a basic BOA member pin with a new membership. I know the pin schedule starts at the 5 years mark, but i made the mistake of assuming that all members get that initial member pin with the starters package. Its not like they don't make'em, they actually sell them in general merchandise area for $2.00, which is what pisses me off the most. For forty dollars i got myself a decal and had to email to request the anoynmous book. They'll probably waste more than the lousy two bucks on mailing me reminders next year to re-join. Well here's advance notice, don't waste your time or money, i won't be re-joining...

    Welcome to the forum Hudsonriver.

    The BMWMOA and the forum is so much more than a pin.

    Stick around for a while and check the place out - it may change your non-reup position.

    Keep the shiny side up!

    Cool

    Wow nice first post, life's too short to loose your cool over something so trivial, pull up a chair, chill and say hi to the nice people.

    My dad always said that expectations lead to disappointment. It appears true in this case.

    However, please send me a PM with your name and address and I will see that you get the pin at no cost. It will look really great next to your 5, 10 and 20 year pins.

    Lots of good people here. Tons of information, at not extra charge in your membership plus the very best Motorcycle Club publications (and one of the best Motorcycle Publications, of any kind) around.

    I'm guessing you live in NY so HERE is a list of the NY clubs. You will find that they are friendly, love to ride and eat and also have great events in which to participate.

    Welcome to the family. Glad to have you here and looking forward to reading more of your posts.

    BTW Would love to see a pic of your bike. We always say nice things about other members rides.

    Ride Well

    Welcome! Pins are important to some.I didn't know there was a five year pin! I will get mine soon. Actually, I don't care. The MOA has a lot to offer beyond a mere pin. Please read Bud's (SIBUD) post carefully as there is a lot of wisdom and good cheer offered.

    Gee whiz, all the pins I have are laying somewhere collecting dust and I have no idea what to do with them.

    Even after you choose insult the club, you are still offered open arms. The QUALITY of this gentleman is a perfect example of the quality of its members and no other reason is needed for a person to join. I think you need to rethink you position.
