Thank you Greg for the proposal outline. I have tucked it away for reference on some other topics.
The BMWs listed in the signature lines of many of the posters are older and out of warranty. How many times does a new member post that they are new to the MOA and their new to them BMW is a bike out of warranty. By nature and necessity the forum traffic is full of shade tree DIY mechanic sorts. As a result my belief it is not the segment of the MOA that would be the target audience for support, ideas of what is needed or wanted in such a position.
I was struck by this bit in the middle of Greg?s earlier post.
"I will leave you with this: this is fundamentally a volunteer membership driven club. At the end of the day it's the club the member's want either because of their involvement, or the lack thereof. Anyone can throw stones, but it takes work and thought to stack them together into something useful".
Again I am neither pro or con with regard to the idea of a liaison. However, I am more than a little bit surprised that for all the talk, that when presented with an outline of how a proposal might be framed the first post after appears to be a lets fold up the tents and go home kind of post. If you can not deal and negotiate with a bunch of deluded masochists that gather together to discuss how to fix these German machines that break; how are you going to deal with the Germans that make them to sell to us?
