Couldn't find a better thread to ask this question!!
Years ago, when I was a member of the BMWMOA (mid 1980's), each member got a little booklet that had a listing (by location of residence), of willing members who would make themselves available if a traveling fellow member had a breakdown.
Does the club still do anything like that? I and my son are planning a trip late this spring/early summer, and I sure would feel a lot more comfortable if I had one of these!
Yes, it's called the BMW owners anonymous, available to all club members.
Our ON editor has indicated in the latest column that coming soon to a phone near you will be the Anonymous app! That should make things better!!

My last anonymous book was 2009....10+ years member....4 books...not a great track record from the organization. Perhaps living and being member in Canada doesn't help...don't know why..... they get my money every year. I update info for them yearly if any changes.
I gave up calling every year for one....maybe north of the border is beyond their mail delivery for a directory but I get the mag OK and they get my cheque.
Funny, I actually get 2-3 calls a year from BMW riders through the anonymous directory just becuse I live where I live on a major trade route where the closest BMW dealer is 200 miles away. As a result have helped out many riders...mostly "newer" beemers that require dealer surgery.
I still travel with the old 2009 directory but never used it yet....probably cause I ride airheads only
Sorry for the rant but beginning to feel like a 3rd world citizen to this organization at times....
And I don't have a hi-tech cell phone with APPS etc...I ride airheads remember
Something is wrong, I get mine every year. I just looked at the last one and it is 2012, sitting on top last year's. My membership started in the mid 80s too and I don't remember not getting one. I would forward this link to them via email and ask them to check into it.
