    why should i join back up?

    I let my membership lapse for a bit, and i'm thinking of joining back up. I'm a full time dad, full time worker and i go to school for adult Ed. Been riding bikes for decades.
    just wondering

    Hi Mark! Long time, no see.

    I think that explains it.

    Cause we miss you?

    Actually the magazine, the Forum, maybe rallies, certainly good friends are why most folks belong to the family. And, as a bonus, if you need to do one thing to your bike, and need good tech advice, that advice will pay for your membership several times over.

    Dang, Mark, haven't seen or heard from you since Roy's house last year. Sometimes you just have to accept things the way they are for the place you are. On this Forum we try to be nice to everybody, whereas elsewhere it's more in-your-face and is acceptable that way. Personally, I don't need that kind of attitude, but that's just me.

    Your call.

    Well, for the free ticket that could win a new bike?

    And because we miss your unique sense of humor?

    And because your post count has suffered and you want to get it back up?

    And because you know, deep down, you want to?
    Ride Well

    Reup for the reasons Paul gave.

    Avoid the politics and Puritan positions. That can drive one into questioning one's sanity. Spend most of your free time being a dad. In the long run that activity pays the biggest dividends. The motorcycle will sit and patiently wait.

    Hey Mark, good to see you over here.

    I asked the same question when I renewed a couple of months ago.

    What I decided is there is a great group of people here who are part of an orginization that sincerely wants to enhance the experience of BMW ownership.

    The ON mag, the Rally, the events and all the other things are great but ultimately, I have found a great group of people with a common interest.

    Where other sites and clubs may offer a number of these things, I found the MOA offered the combination that worked for me (and at a very reasonable cost).

    Besides, somebody is gonna win that S1000RR, might be you.

    And oh yeah, we actually miss you around here and wouldn't mind seeing you back.

    Because...

    • We miss you.
    • The club has done an amazing job with Regional Events.
    • Touring Tips is in color.
    • The Magazine is now online.
    • Steve Marquardt is awesome.
    • Bubba Zanetti is as frequent here as he is on ADV.
    • And we need you to run Camp Beers.


    Those are the reasons.

    I've "lapsed" two or three times but keep coming back. Personally, I just enjoy the crowd.

    If you insist on exercising a right to burn our flag, first be so kind as to wrap yourself in it and then douse yourself with gasoline just before you strike the match.
