Membership/Contact Form

I think of this site as one for the community, and supported by the community. Please support the site to keep it going! I have made every effort to keep the site slim and low-cost, but we still always find it diffiicult to pay for site fees and maintenance. Every little bit helps a great deal, so if you enjoy the site, learn and generate value from it, why not chip in a few bucks to keep this great resource alive?

If you would like to leave me a message concerning the site or other matter, you may use the form at the bottom of the page.


The Short Version:

Yearly Subscription Membership = $25
Lifetime Member = $60
[DLM] Double Lifetime Member = $120
[TLM] Triple Lifetime Member = $180

[your name] email address = $220 (must be a lifer)

The Long Version:
To register and talk in the forums, you do not have to donate. However, if you are interested in becoming a member, and supporting the site, you can donate. Sites as busy as ours are expensive to run, primarily due to the bandwidth usage, and donations have kept us going and growing over the years. The standard donation is twenty five dollars for a one-year membership. Donating sixty dollars increments will grant you lifetime memberships as outlined above so you dont have to worry about renewing! Members, DLM and TLM.. all have special color indicated names in the forums to show off your donation prowess!

You can also get a email address. This will be forwarded to your current email address, so you can use it for a side email address for the Mrs., or perhaps your "spam" gathering email that you can use when visiting untrusted sites (when it starts to get a lot of spam, just let me know and I can change the email name). Email addresses do require a $20 maintenance fee every year, which is waived if the member continues to donate beyond lifer for that year, or if they're a decent contributor in other ways. :) To be honest, I probably wont even remember to charge this fee, but I just don't want to legally say I'll support email addresses for ever.

PayPal is a well known and safe way to send funds over the Internet to other people. You can use a paypal account if you have one, the service will take credit cards sans accounts. BTW, if you have one already, please include your forum nickname in your note so I know who to assign member privlidges to!

What Do Members Get?
Members will be given member numbers, and have special access to the Member's Section, Buy/Sell & Trade and Pat's section to voice their opinion on the site and suggest changes/additions as they see necessary. I closely monitor the member's section, so if you want me to read something, its best done in there (or just send me an email from the bottom of this page). Occasionally, I will post a vote on certain site additions/changes or topics that arise. Most of the great things on this site are a result of member input!

Why Donate?
The donations are applied to the site to maintain it and pay for various fees. The fees involved in keeping a site like this alive are: Base ISP costs and bandwidth usage, url and email forwardings, member mailings, additional server space, and programming and design tools that need to be purchased to create and maintain the site. Some updates also require professional help as I'm just not that savvy. :)

It should be noted that I do not intend to get rich off of this site. I only want to ensure that it does not become a money pit for me. I donate my free time every day to creating, updating and monitoring this site because I really enjoy the R1150R community that we have here and want a place for other enthusiasts to share information and ask questions. This site has grown to be the premier site for BMW R-bike enthusiasts on the net, thanks to the support of the members and people who share their knowledge. I think of this site as one for the community, supported by the community!
