Emergency Support List

As many of you will remember we use to have a Emergency Support List.
It was a list of fellow members who were willing to lend a hand if you needed help while traveling.
Someone who might possibly be able to come get you, or maybe put you up for the night.
Just someone familiar with the area who might be able to offer some advice would be helpful.
Thanks to Tom Maziarz we are now ready to start the ESL once again.

To receive the list via email you must be on the list.
We are starting over so no information from the last list has been used.

The way Tom has this setup it is pretty much automated, so be sure and follow the instructions below.

· Signing up is simple, just follow this link to the VBA website, fill in the template and click submit.

· To remove yourself from the Emergency Support List, re-submit the template with just your first name,
last name, forum name and VBA membership number (if you have one). Leave all other fields blank.

· To update your information, fully complete a new template and re-submit it. Do not just submit the changed information.
You must fully complete a new template.

· The list will be mailed out to all names on the list at the beginning of each month from
July through November, with the first mailing on or about July 1st.
The next mailing after November will be on April 1st, with monthly mailings resuming after that.

· After July 1st, new additions to the list will receive a copy of the list within roughly a week of submitting their information.


Once again a big thank you to Tom for getting this setup.

Emergency Support List Mailed

If you signed up for the VBA Emergency Support List, you should have received the first copy of the list this morning. Any questions or comments, please either reply to this thread or send me a pm. And please bear with any initial problems. The whole process is pretty-well automated and this morning is the first time the whole thing ran end-to-end.

If you haven't signed up and would like to, then just follow the link in the first posting of this thread and fill out the form per the instructions. I plan to process the list once a week on weekends, so you'll receive a copy within a week of signing up. Same applies to anyone who makes a change. Folks who remove themselves from the list will receive a confirmation email within a week.

Otherwise, updates will be published once a month at the beginning of the month through and including November.

Safe riding everyone.

I received the list this morning.
Thanks Tom for all your work getting this set up.
And thanks to the guys who are willing to help a fellow rider if needed and signed up to be a part of the ESL.

Lets hope none of us never need to use it.

In the past over 100 people were on the list.
Hopefully more members will sign up.
Most guys have roadside assistance as part of their insurance but as you said,
just being able to contact someone local to ask for advice would be a plus.

That being said Dave, Road Assistance isn't always the answer.

On our way down to Eureka Springs last summer, the other bike that we were riding with suffered a dead battery at a gas stop in nowheresville, Indiana on Sunday afternoon. We tried a couple different Roadside Assistance programs that were in force, and neither would help us get a battery. The only thing they would do was pick up the bike and take it back to their yard. There wasn't a dealer anywhere within a reasonable distance that was open that we could find. Fortunately, we located a mechanic who offered to pick us up, drive us to a store where we were able to buy a Nomad battery (also not easy to find on a Sunday afternoon in nowheresville, Indiana), and bring us back to the gas station.

The ESL, which wasn't active last summer, sure could have come in handy that day, even if just to get advice on where I could have gone to get a battery for the other bike.

If you have signed up for the Emergency Support List, you should have received a mailing this morning with the latest copy.
Although it wasn't due to be sent again to the full list until August 1st, it is peak riding season for much of the country and the number of names on the list has doubled since the last mailing.

If you haven't signed up, you may never need it, but it sure would be nice to have it if you do. See the first post in this thread for the link.

Safe riding!!!
