Default VMF Roadside Assistence

Thanks Brian, I think this is a somple solution until everyone has access to a link for the program. If everyone that wants to participate just edits their signiture in the USER CP section we'll be up and running. Just include the information you're comfortable giving. I've included my cell phone number, but again you need not.
This is a free program for members of this site. I hope all can participate in some form.
Even just being available for tech advice for a stuck Brother on the road. Sometimes it's hard to think when traffic is blasting by and your all alone. Been there.
Thanks,
Steve-o

It may be helpful if everyone that want to be in this program sets aside a place on their profile as to what you have to offer the traveler coming through your area.
One thing nice in Michigan is that everything shipped via UPS is delivered next day so parts could be to a stranded rider very quickly from any MIVMF members.
Another idea would be to borrow from the VMOA regional setup, grouping local states so as to faciltate an easy way to find somebody where you need services. You could print off the region you'll be traveling in or it would make searching easier for somebody when you need help.

Below is a example of possible sevices that might be offered:
P - Pickup/ Trailer (or other bike moving method)
T - Tools
W - Workspace
C - Camping
B - Room (or bed/couch/etc)
F - Food/ beverages
R - Ride partner
G - Directions/ guide to local attractions/ resturants/ etc.

Very cool idea. This is something I am sometimes concerned with when several hundred miles from home on a 19 year old bike.

I have a truck, trailer set up for hauling bikes, tools and even a spare room if you promise not to creep on my wife and 2 daughters! I'll post my info for sure when the link is up.

Great idea Brian. I updated my signature to include your suggestion.

Thursday my alternator in my Jeep decided to die in the middle of nowhere. It was like 12 degrees out. I called Mark mckzx9 because he lives a couple of exits away from where I was stuck. Mark wasn't home, and was in fact taking care of a very important family matter. I have AAA and called them in case I needed a tow. Mark insisted he would grab a few tools and drive from a good distance to help me out. We got enough juice in my battery to get me off the highway, and then had to jump my battery again. My Brother got me to Auto Zone, a garage to swap out the alternator and a warm spot for me to wait for the wife to pick me up. I don't know what happened to AAA? I'm sure they were busy. Mark is never too busy to help out anyone. You know you have a Bro when you know Mark. His heart is bigger than his Biceps. This is just one reason why the Nice Guy Award is being requested. There are many other reasons too.

This is an excellent idea. I have been stranded with no help late at night and a rod knocking in the middle of nowhere. Luckily the motor held together for another 200 miles! Don't want to have to do that again!
