    Couldn't find a better thread to ask this question!!

    Years ago, when I was a member of the BMWMOA (mid 1980's), each member got a little booklet that had a listing (by location of residence), of willing members who would make themselves available if a traveling fellow member had a breakdown.

    Does the club still do anything like that? I and my son are planning a trip late this spring/early summer, and I sure would feel a lot more comfortable if I had one of these!

    Thanks,

    Yes, it's called the BMW owners anonymous, available to all club members.

    My last anonymous book was 2009....10+ years member....4 books...not a great track record from the organization. Perhaps living and being member in Canada doesn't help...don't know why..... they get my money every year. I update info for them yearly if any changes.

    I gave up calling every year for one....maybe north of the border is beyond their mail delivery for a directory but I get the mag OK and they get my cheque.

    Funny, I actually get 2-3 calls a year from BMW riders through the anonymous directory just becuse I live where I live on a major trade route where the closest BMW dealer is 200 miles away. As a result have helped out many riders...mostly "newer" beemers that require dealer surgery.

    I still travel with the old 2009 directory but never used it yet....probably cause I ride airheads only

    Sorry for the rant but beginning to feel like a 3rd world citizen to this organization at times....

    And I don't have a hi-tech cell phone with APPS etc...I ride airheads remember

    Something is wrong, I get mine every year. I just looked at the last one and it is 2012, sitting on top last year's. My membership started in the mid 80s too and I don't remember not getting one. I would forward this link to them via email and ask them to check into it.

    I'll try them again this year about it...we'll see. Last year I called and they said they sent another one but never got it. We even reconfirmed my address but nothing showed up. We'll see what happens....let you know.
