    Help -- Problems Registering Online

    I keep getting an error every time I try to register. I select adult and "qty 1". That's fine, but opposite "child" it shows qty 1 whether I select child, or not (there's no "0" option to choose). When I go to check out it tells me I have an error as follows:

    ERROR INFORMATION:
    Element PRODUCT_MINOR is undefined in SESSION.
    The error occurred on line 12.

    I assume this means it expects me to select child because there's a 1 in the qty box. I seem to be in a bit of a catch-22, unless I choose child and pay an extra $5 (on top of erroreously indicating I'm bringing a child).

    Any suggestions

    Unhappy Ah..... the curse of sarcasm: Pre-registration Malfunction

    I suppose I deserve this. After posting my last comment, I decided to pre-register and lo and behold, I can't even get past the login!!!!! I keep entering my member number and password as instructed but am reset each time. Grrrrr
    ah well....someone will no doubt throw me a virtual lifeline...I hope.
    Adios

    Thom: Try purging the cache, cookies, whatever else in your browser & try over. Don't forget to login first.

    Maybe unfortunately, but I've already registered using the system and can't go thru the steps again to see what problems there are.

    Mark: Hate to say this but actually the system does a background check on all applicants. Obviously you both failed...

    All you need to do is check the "Adult" box, number of adults, and select the "checkout" button (maybe the button is called "continue", I forget). Just ignore the child/whatever items. You'll have a chance to review.

    BTW, I've asked the coders to look into these issues in case we really do have a problem

    It Worked This Time

    I tried again and it worked this time, though it did take me several tries to get through the checkout. I should also point out that I also got an e-mail from the office with an offer of help after my first post. Fast response, I'd say.

    The best suggestion I can make is to click the reset password link. In about three minutes you should get an e-mail with the ability to change your password and log in. I did that as I was also having trouble logging in. I couldn't remember the password.

    Hope that helps.

    Cool Pre-registration Success..... Hooyah


    Thanks to Steve and Brad I have wended my way through the preregistration morass. I purged my browser and reset my password (this sounds almost obscene..lol...) and voila the BMW MOA censors have given me another shot. Man, will they be sorry! This Witness Protection Program can be a real drag. I have to keep changing my name.
    Once logged in, the process was a breeze although the options for children caused me to take pause for a second. I decided that acting in an adolescent manner didn't actually qualify me for this fee so I endorsed the adult option.
    Thanks again for the help. See you there. Brace yourselves.

    Pre-reg problems

    It took 3 calls to MO and had something to do with the security set up of my XP system. Their staff was incredibly helpful and I was able to git 'er done. The card would've been faster but I have been transformed from being un-registered to being pre-registered. The weather in NW Ohio is beginning to co-operate and I have ridden for 10 days straight. See ya in Lima.

    OK, I need to register 4 adults and two children, however the drop down on adults only offers 2.

    Sorry, but it didn't. Told me I wasn't in the system and to contact HQ.

    fwiw, I have logged in and edited my profile in the past, but only with back room voo-doo from Sandee.

    One usability suggestion.... can all that crap on the registration page, put a big "you must log in before you register for the rally" link first. the fact that you have to log-in before you register is buried in the body text.
