** UPDATED JAN-16-2009 **

Ok folks Bungie has taken over maintenance of the Assistance list. There is a new email address to which you can send your information. It is now fjrassist@yahoo.ca.

That address again:
fjrassist@yahoo.ca


The list will be sent directly to FJRForum members who request it. I also think that everyone can offer something even just the use of a phone so if you plan to request the list you should seriously consider putting yourself on it.

Please email the information don't PM. Thx.

Here is the info we need for the list:

- FJR Forum name/handle
- First name (I hate having to call people and ask for them by handle. "Hello could I speak to Road Rash please?")
- City
- State
- Phone/Cell number
- type of assistance you can offer (Such as technical help, tools, tent space, extra bed, comraderie, able to transport bike (trailer/pick-up). Anything else you can think of.)

Remember this is supposed to be a list for emergencies. It isn't necessary to say you will help with planning a trip to your area. Afterall that is what the forum is for.

The address to send the information is:
fjrassist@yahoo.ca


Thanks to Bungie for taking this on.

Cheers,
gypsy

Scab those are the un-represented States I guess that wasn't clear. Alabama is among the proud States to already have representation...you! I included DC which would make 26.

Scab,

Actually it wasn't clear the list was for non-participant States. I just changed my earlier post.

As for AL we were fortunate enough to spend a year there. My wife and I didn't know what to expect when we went down South but we both loved it. Ok the summer could be less humid....otherwise we loved it. laugh.gif

California, while well represented, seems sadly lacking in actual percentage of riders on the assistance list, at least on my most recent copy. When we attend group rides, there are bunches of really good people in attendance. So why do some of you (you know who you are) not participate? That was a question, BTW. unsure.gif

Good question Toecutter.. I don't know the answer. I joined the list; from what I've seen the FJR crowd is, ahh, older and more sensible than say a sport bike crowd.

Perhaps folks are concerned that the list will somehow get published or that they are somehow at risk of having a 'stranger' invade the home or worse yet the shop? Case it first then clean it out later?

That's my best guess. Other opinions? I really thought this list would be at least 100 strong by now.

I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.

Hey slapnpop/ignacio: Can we get this info mined from the profiles? Obviously, an opt-in checkbox to make data available, and having the extra information (what kind of "help") stored in the mysql database.
