    Default It's a R.A.P. ---- Riders Assistance Program

    This idea has been done on the Big Dog site and the BMW Owners group has a HUGE book of people. I don't know where it will go but I figure in a smaller, tight knit group like TWM is, we should be able to get this together.

    Here's what I'm thinking...

    A phone list would be the best route to go. I think this is how we will start our Rider Assistance Program and we'll refine it as we go.

    I want to make this clear that this phone list will be for emergency use only. This is not to be used as a social list to arrange rides or events. I ask you respect everyone's privacy in this manner.

    If you want to arrange events, please use the forum for that purpose.

    So, here is the info I'd like to start with.
    • Name
    • Screen name
    • City/State
    • Phone Number
    • Tools/Services (i.e. garage/trailer/tools/internet/etc...)
    We can refine this list as time goes on and as experience teaches us.

    I'd also like to see a few members volunteer to be Liaisons that will be available to help members locate help. I'll be a point of contact but my job is so unpredictable. My thought process is to use this option as a point of contact to help get the ball rolling encase someone is in an unfamiliar location and doesn't know who is actually close. It can be a last ditch attempt to get help for a stranded member. And again, this is something we can refine as experience teaches us.

    I'd prefer if those of you volunteer to help email me your info and I'll work up a list as a word document and/or a PDF file.

    My main concern about posting this on the forum is privacy; that's why I want everybody to just email me through the forum for information gathering.

    Once the file is assembled I can update as more join in.

    We will need to figure out who gets the file. My first thought is, you have to be in the list in order to get the list. But I think that is open for debate.

    Further, I may create a seperate hidden forum section for those that are in R.A.P. to discuss how they want to continue it.

    Thoughts?
    Input?

    This would be for assistance in case of breakdowns or something of that nature?

    Can I spam everyone?

    Lists like this are a great idea. If someone is far away from home, even a little help could save hours and $$$.
