REA owners anonymous
« on: December 06, 2010, 08:01:52 PM »
When I was a member of the BMWMOA we had a list of club members who were willing to help riders touring in their area. Is there any interest in something like this for the REA? I could offer a trailer, work space, work tools, mechanical assistance, temporary bike storage, a camp spot and coffee. It would be nice to know where you might find a little help if needed while traveling. Any thoughts?

A small rally is a good idea Bob, any ideas where?

A good hard cider would make the 600 miles worth the ride  ;)

I remember the BMWOA anonymous list from before e internet. Never had to use it myself. I have been on some other (scooter) forums that gave you the option of displaying your location. Some people would list the town, others something silly but it was nice to have that option. Knowing where members are would allow some to connect when on the road.

 I too wish more folks would stick a pin in the members map and list a general location.
I would not want the location to be exact.

 It would be nice to PM forum members before traveling through their REgion to see if they wanted to link up and share the ride for a couple miles.
