    Believe that's only for first timers. Otherwise, I'd have a bunch of Free Annual scripts due.

    That explains why my emails to the MOA remain unanswered.

    Email is not the cure-all, end-all. Without an established email contact exchange, you wonít know if your email was delivered to the ďinĒ box. Give the office a call.

    I'm sure I will get flack for this.
    On my third martini.
    If you can afford 4 new RTs, pony up the $49 for a membership.

    The purpose of the free first year was/is to entice new BMW motorcycle owners to become BMW MOA members. Rewarding folks for buying more new BMW motorcycles might make sense for the dealerships selling the bikes but does not really serve much purpose for the BMW MOA.

    No flack from me. I can afford it , but refuse to pay for something I can receive for free IF it’s free. I have already renewed with platinum roadside. Drink up my friend.

    The first year free program is for people who have not been MOA members in the past or havenít been members recently. We donít have anything associated with the purchase of a bike, although many dealerships position the offer above with a bike purchase.

    Iíll look into your messages at the office. Itís rare that something goes unanswered. Itís possible any replies are tied up in your junk filters or spam. Regardless, you should always expect an answer if you contact the MOA.
