The Anonymous Book

 

Click the cover to access the digital version of the Anonymous Book


The Anonymous Book is all about members helping members. For years, MOA members have used the Anonymous Book as a BMW Rider's roadside assistance plan. And it still works today.

The long awaited digital Anonymous Book is here. It's the same information as the paper edition with a few improvements.  Most notably, it's available on your desktop, tablet or phone. And, you can search cities, states or keyword.  Find your favorite dealer and click the web address or phone number for an instant connection.

 
 

Got Questions?

We've put some of the most frequently asked questions below. If this doesn't solve the problem, contact the membership team or give us a call at 864-438-0962.  We'll be glad to help.

Are there any rules to the Anonymous Book?

General courtesy is the rule of thumb with repsect to the Anonymous Book

TO THE CALLER - While the services offered are typically for emergency situations, there may be the times when you simply need advice or a place to change your oil.  Please state to the host whether an emergency exists or not.  And, while socializing with other BMW MOA members can be a legitimate reason for calling a  umber in the book, it is the caller's responsibility to be sensitive to the individual limits presented by the host.

TO THE HOST - We suggest you ask the caller for their BMW MOA number and determine the need. Extending your services and/or hospitality is at your discretion.  It is not possible for BMW MOA to control the use of the system or to be responsible for that use.  We can only urge that members do not abuse the system in any way.

 

How do I get my copy of the Anonymous Book?

Copies for new members are mailed in batches every six to eight weeks. You will automatically receive a copy within the first two months of membership.

 

What is inside the Anonymous Book?

Inside is a listing of members by city and state, who are willing to offer assistance to another member in a time of need.  Each listing contains the members phone number and a list of services the MOA member is willing to provide.

Why is it necessary to login to view the digital version?

Like the paper version, the digital version is a benefit of membership and protected by copyright laws. Login helps keep the book to MOA members only and protect your information.

Is the information the same as the paper version?

Yes, for all of 2016, the information will be the same in both the print version and the digital version.

Is the print edition being phased out?

Absolutely not.  The print version is here to stay.

Can I have my information only in the digital or print version?

Unfortunately, the information in the digital version must be the same as print edition. If you have opted-in to the Anonymous book at the time the digital version is created, your information will be included.  We are working on a more flexible structure for digital updates, but for now, the information is the same in both the print and digital editions.

 

How do I remove my information from the digital version?

You can update your profile information online, contact the membership team with any changes or or call the MOA membership office at (864) 438-0962 and we will be glad to update your information.  It will be removed with the next printing of the Anonymous Book after changes are made.
