    I would think the forum would be a good tool for the BODs to get a feel for what MOA members want.

    Might that be called an insular existence? Or is it just an aversion to M/C blogs, esp, BMW M/C blogs? While not a BOD guy it is note worthy that P.Glaves not only comes here but makes it a part of the membership experience/benefit for all with his mechanical experience & participation. Hard to imagine that the BOD doesn't want a "finger on the web pulse" of members on the forum, pixxing contest aside.

    I disagree with SIBUD and the rest of you.



    You have 9 posts, if my count is correct, in this thread from active BoD members, a couple of posts from committee members and several from previous BoD members. No BoD ever posted as much as Kbasa but you guys forget he had a dual roll for a very long time as a BoD member and as a forum admin/moderator. Gail was often heard when she was on the BoD in part because she was an active user before she became a BoD member. At the end of the day take a look at the forum stats page. It is a rare day that you won't see a BoD member having logged into the site. I can't look behind the curtain and see where they have been on the site but they do show up and apparently pursue their interest just like the rest of us.

    The other thing to keep in mind is BoD members can get beat up twice for what they say here as our peers. They often are grilled and flame broiled when they participate here. Then they head to a BoD meeting or weekly conference call and can get the same treatment by fellow BoD members who don't agree with what was said.

    I agree it was always fun and often informative to be in a thread with Kbasa. On the other hand can the same be said of us?

    Besides Sue, I don't know the screen names of the BOD members. Could you please list the screen names and real names of the current BOD members?

    Lee, look at post # 233.

    The real names of all the BoD members are listed in the front of each BMW Owners News, in the September issue on page 6. If a BoD member wishes to NOT post or NOT list his/her real name, then like any other member, they don't have to and I won't "out" them here. If I recall correctly, 6 of the 9 BoD members do post here and do list their real names when posting.

    I have never been a frequent poster here, but I am an avid lurker.

    Don't assume that if a BoD member doesn't reply, that they are not reading a thread. See Sue's posts above. She has covered it all. There is no further reason for me to weigh in when the questions have been answered B/4.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I knew the real names were listed in the magazine and the MOA home page, but screen names would help. I see you list your position in your signature and I had missed that in the past. If the other BOD members list there full name in the signature I'll try to watch for that and learn who who in the zoo.
    See you at the Iowa Rally next year.

    Just passing through on the way to Fly-Over-Land Friday night events. Don't have the information at the tip of my fingers. It is one piece of information I never worried about or thought to accumulate. I will reply with a PM when I have the time to do so.
