With National Rally next month there will be more ST's on the road at one time than any other time of the year......Have YOU joined the RAN  :think1


Checkout the details here....http://ozstoc.com/index.php?topic=4765.0


If your not on the road you may be of help to another member riding to Ballarat.......and if you are on the road an unexpected call to you from the RAN Co-Ordinators may put you in a position to help a fellow member in need of assistance in your normal local area.

Members of OzSTOC have helped formulate an assistance plan for anyone in this scheme on tour who needs assistance to get going again. This is NOT a replacement for your Motorist Association Membership - just a group of friendlies whom might be able to help out. Keeping Members' personal details PRIVATE & CONFIDENTIAL has been our paramount concern in planning this scheme.

If you are able to offer some assistance (in whatever capacity your means allow), and you want to be a part of this scheme, you can send a PM to ST2UP with your details in the following format:


FORUM NAME:  (e.g. DIESEL)

FIRST NAME:  (e.g. DAVE)

PRIMARY CONTACT No: (e.g. 0414 xxx xxx)


SECONDARY No: (e.g. (07) 5499 xxxx)

LOCATION: (e.g. CABOOLTURE QLD)

SERVICES OFFERED: (e.g. Bike recovery (trailer), emergency accommodation, 10 mins to Honda Dealer, internet, garage/workshop/tools)



Our OzSTOC RAN Co-ordinators are Jean (Pocket Stocker) and Chris (ST2UP).

Our Co-ordinators do three final things:

1. They will plot your location on the RAN Map (private)
2. They will send you a PM with the OzSTOC Rider Assistance special Phone Number to contact in emergency. (Yes! We have our very own National emergency contact number)
3. They will take the calls for assistance (much like NRMA or RACQ do), find an Assistance Member in the area and contact them with your details.


How it works:

I find that my alternator gives up the ghost somewhere near Mt Isa and am stuck. I call the OzSTOC RAN Number and give Chris or Jean the details. They will then look up the Assistance Member in that area and explain. If that Member is able to help - fine. You are rescued.

If they CANNOT HELP at that time... fine too - The next Member is looked up. If no luck there - we tried, and you are now on your own. Out of courtesy - let the co-ordinators know your progress.

Just supply your details as above to ST2UPto be eligible for this service. Again, your details will be kept private - guaranteed! Remember - this is for small emergency use only


Questions will be answered below.


Thanks to the Members of the RAN Committee who helped formulate this scheme. We are proud to offer this great service to our great Members.      :thumb


Cheers, The OzSTOC Team

We really have some holes in the RAN assistance network in the following area's.......South Australia, the Higher traffic routes from Melbourne through to Sydney particularly around the boarders......and the North Coast of NSW.

Had a member today call the 24hr RAN line for assistance, closest OzSTOC member who had nominated to assist via the RAN scheme was over 200K's away, yet on the member map we had 5 members in a 50 k radius of the member in need of assistance. If your in a position to offer any assistance to a fellow OzSTOC member even in the form of your local network of contacts please consider the RAN scheme.

With National Rally in our near future its time to plug the OzSTOC Rider Assistance Network (RAN), if you haven't made the choice to assist have a read of the below...... ;-*

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Members of OzSTOC have helped formulate an assistance plan for anyone in this scheme on tour who needs assistance to get going again. This is NOT a replacement for your Motorist Association Membership - just a group of friendlies whom might be able to help out.

LOCATION: (e.g. CABOOLTURE QLD)

SERVICES OFFERED: (e.g. Bike recovery (trailer), emergency accommodation, 10 mins to Honda Dealer, internet, garage/workshop/tools)

Questions will be answered below.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The RAN has been used on a total of 11 occasions since its conception. That 11 members who had there traveling drama's of varying degrees made just a little more bearable knowing that there was help a phone call away.

I just stumbled across the RAN  while rambling through the forums. A great idea and i've just pm'd my details to ST2up (Chris?). I'm  in the north of SA, so further out than many in SA. I don't know, but maybe the RAN should be a 'sticky' - of course, it might already be one and i just missed it... :whistle
