MTF Tourer's Assistant Database

Al from the Motorcycle Tourers' Forum has given the OK for New England Riders who wish to offer assistance (in various forms) to riders in our area to sign up to use the online database.  There are full instructions on the website.  Todd Ryan (DRTRYAN) is one of their validators, and no information is made public nor are potential particpants given full access until they are verified by phone.  I've been a participant since its inception, and have never gotten a call for emergency assistance, so it's not like you'll be the local AAA service ... grin!  You don't even have to offer emergency assistance, but can just offer touring info and the like.  It's all up to you, and all controlled by you through the online interface.  It's the shiznit!

I'd like to suggest that we NERds include (NER) in either the name fields or the nickname fields, which will make searching for NERds easier.  Here's how my listing displays ... information such as street address and phone numbers is optionally displayed according to how you set up your profile.  Very cool.

<Todd Ryan (DRTRYAN) is one of their validators, and no information is made public nor are potential particpants given full access until they are verified by phone.  (Maybe we can forgo that if Todd knows you are who you say you are). >

Just so you know, I've got to receive a response to an email and then I call the number you put into the database.  Some people have accidentally put in the wrong phone number so I've got to check em all.....

Denny, thank you for taking the initiative on this.  I think it is a great for NER to be associated with the MTF Tourers' Assistant program.  I plan on signing up and will include NER in my listing as you suggested.

Oh, just one question - who is the good looking guy in the picture on your listing?  LOL

You could but I added it to the profile already.

You're already verified.  You can send a picture to post also if you want to be like Denny!!!
