Q1 — What is the mailing list?

BMW-GS is a mailing list for discussion of all of ownership and riding of BMW GS series motorcycles. Topics dealing the GS’s close relatives R80ST, R100R/850R/1100R, F650) may be appropriate provided they some relevance either to or to off-pavement touring/riding on an absurdly motorcycle.

Q2 — What if I its charter is narrower than my

Congratulations, you must have a Or at least own other bikes your GS. But the list administrators care about anything the topics described in A1, not appearing in BMW-GS mail folder We don’t expect BMW-GS’s to completely satisfy everyone’s thirst.

But fortunately there are other lists available somewhat different charters, and easy to subscribe to as many or as few as like. For instance, other email lists include:

A topical (i.e. non-chat) celebrating ownership of BMW Boxers type 247 or earlier engines. would include R80G/S and but not R1100GS/R1150GS models.) Boxer info, short stories, reports, planned gatherings, and jokes are all appropriate on this an effort of the Airheads Beemer

Q3 Who can join the BMW-GS mailing

Anyone interested in the discussions in section A1 and who agrees not to abuse the for purposes beyond this

Q4 — What’s considered on this list?

Propagating that move beyond the of this charter as outlined in A1. In consideration of other BMW-GS such discussions should be to private e-mail or to a more forum such as the lists in A2. For example, a debate about laws would be inappropriate on although reviews of dual-sport are welcome.

In general, the less a topic is, the less bandwidth it on this mailing list.

For who feel the need to post about laws and regulations may affect the way in which we may be allowed to use our even though such are rarely GS-specific, there is the clause. You can mail them to the administrator (bmw-gs-ownermicapeakcom) who will them IF they have a (web- or mailaddress) to a forum in any discussion can and should take they will get posted a subject line stating No here.

Posting complaints to the about abuse of the list. well intentioned, this is as harmful as the original noise. concerns should be addressed to the originator or list administrators

Posting test messages and meta messages, such as Did see the message I sent last and Why haven’t I gotten any messages yet Such messages are more addressed to the list administrators, or by the automated list-processor. Please see A16

Posting virus warnings or chain letters of any kind. See or

Almost beyond is the fact that riding a is not restricted to specific views on be it political, religious, social, or whatever, with the possible of the mental attitude required for and riding one in the first place. If for reason you feel irritated or offended by another member’s however tangential and non-GS-specific may be and therefore worthy of comment they be kept off-list, or worse, PLEASE keep remarks off-list too, them to me ( instead.

comments in cases like tend to avalanche into and we all can do without that. Also that there are no absolutes and that what to one person is a somewhat brusque remark can be person’s deadly insult. be temperate in what you send and be tolerant in what you accept.

Q5 What if someone abuses the

The list administrators understand most inappropriate postings are We have therefore set the default field to the originator (see A12 ), and the mode to ACK (see A11 ). The list are also NOT interested in running a list. And we even understand some amount of off-topic is inevitable.

But at the same time, we are also to ensuring that BMW-GS a topical, high-content, low-noise for the benefit of those subscribers who have time to sort the sheer volume inherent in a chat list. Should reminders (by the listadmins or other prove ineffective in reducing of this list, the listadmins the right to refuse service if to enforce this charter. direct any questions, objections, or suggestions regarding the administration of list directly to the list via bmw-gs-ownermicapeakcom.

Q6 — What can I do to keep the signal-to-noise ratio

If a thread’s topic has evolved of the original posting, change the line of your response to it. (If it’s evolved outside of the charter, drop it or take it

Use minimal quotes. Trim the text from the original so that your reply ONLY the minimum quotation to establish context. Include an for the quoted material, but please repeat 20 lines of headers. that if you attempt to re-post the header of the original message, may mistake your reply as a and automatically reject it!) You can make your response for others to read by following the convention of appending new material the minimum quoted portion of the to which the new stuff refers.

For information, see RFC1855 ( and locations). Certain mail include, by default, all of the original underneath the reply text, it easy to miss how large already gotten. Each someone replies that way trimming the quoted message, that’s been sent to the gets sent again, and and again.

This bloats message and makes digests hard to

Avoid crossposting between lists. If you feel you must the same message to both and another mailing list, send them separately . The is that if you include both and other mailing list on the To:/CC: fields of the same a frequent result is that threads wind up getting from the other lists to As posting to BMW-GS is restricted to only, most of these will be rejected.
