Bump......Just keeping it fresh guys, have some holes in the Map we would REALLY like to fill to give this scheme every opportunity to succeed, we all could potentially be a recipient of the service........Dont be concerned if you cannot offer "Emergency Accomodation" or a fully equiped bike Workshop etc.......your mower can with 5 litres of Petrol (for most members  :p) would be of massive assistance in the right situation......even your local contacts could be a deal breaker.

OK, latest members volunteering to join the RAN and provide support for members in their regions are;

Tony
Malcolm6112
Honk
Gadget (Gary)
Growly
MikeGood

Many thanks to these members for joining in.

Please remember that first contact when in need of assistance is to the RAN phone number NOT directly to these members.

Also remember the famous saying "If all else fails ring for Fred, maybe Fred can't help, but it's nice to know that you're not alone!!" This may well be applicable to the RAN, but the more members we have involved in this undertaking the higher is the likelihood that assistance can be obtained when needed...so join in if you can!!!

Cheers all

Any chance that the registered RAN participants can see a map or the list?    I'm keen to see the coverage at this early stage of the network.

Perhaps to maintain privacy a map could be generated with a coloured coded circle indicating the type or level of assistance that covers the area or town or city that the person offering assistance resides in.

Just a thought....

Similar has been discussed Sabie........OzSToc is assessing the interest the RAN generates in this current formate and then consideration to extending the smartphone option as access for the future aswell......the confidentiality of personal information is the paramount concern, cheers for your ideas.

This is very simple. We will not be publishing the RAN list details to the club, it is there simply and only for if someone is in trouble they can ring the Ran List phone number to see if there is someone in their area that could help.

PRIVACY has been our biggest stumbling block with the RAN List. People who have volunteered themselves for the list, quite a number have insisted on privacy and that is what we are going to respect.

As much as we would like to publish a map or locations, we don't think it is fair to the people who don't want anything published, as they might be on the list, but not in a position to help on the day you are in need of help, we dont want anyone feeling pushed into a position they have to help if they can't at the time.

The RAN list is built around, if your in trouble, ring, if there is no one in your area that can help, then you move onto your next solution.

We will be publishing a phone number of the RAN List that you can ring to talk to ST2UP and Pocket Stocker

We are still refining how this is going to work, but our most important thing with this is that PRIVACY of all those involved is respected totally and completely.

Well done to the team putting this together.  :clap :clap  While a map or a list might be nice, it is not essential to the operation and concept of a RAN.  For generally contacting members, we can already see where other members are via the Members Map and make contact via e.mail or PM.
Keep up the good work.

Streak, I don't know why you've quoted my last post, I'm not asking for any details of the RAN, I simply suggested a map in response to Stinkypete's post as a way of getting around the privacy issue by marking a map with the general location of possible RAN assistance, whether it be by town or city, Shire council area or general geographical area. I in no way suggested anyone details be broadcast.

I think you may have jumped the gun on this one by associating my post to your statement regarding breaching or requesting to breach privacy.

Could I suggest you have another read of the posts for clarification.

It was also a friendly dig at st2up regarding his statement that OzSTOC was looking into it  as if it were a separate or governing body and is to be taken as a dig as we all do from time to time.

Sorry I was a bit slow to respond.  Haven't spent much time on the fourm lately, it's too depressing since I haven't ridden in 4 months, and am not likely to in the near future due to a work related back injury  :cuss :cuss :cuss
 
I've sent my details to Whizz.  I can't provide a lot of stuff myself, but do have a pretty good network of motorcyclists up here who can probably cover any eventuality.

The more participants the more options and coverage we all have, however......be nice to fill some holes on the RAN map in Victoria in Melbourne and to the east, South Aust in general, NSW North of Sydney to QLD boarder up the Pacific Hwy, QLD North of the Sunshine Coast.

Basing this also on the members map  :thumb

Latest figure is 35 members. Would of course be VERY HELPFUL if there were more, so anyone else who can chuck their name forward please send me the following details. This will not be generally published, information will exist only within the RAN Database with details only being available to a very small Mod crew (3 people only, me being one!!)

Your real name
Your Forum name
Your mobile phone number
your home phone number
your home address
your State
Your list of capabilities.

Come on, join in if you can!!
Cheers,
Paul

Will send mine tomorrow when on a PC.... I could probably set up an automated system on a PBX based to narrow down state and then area and have it call all numbers on the list until one answers or would go to main voicemail that would email a contact... Could even set up as 1300 number :thinking
