BMWST.com is a member-supported website. No banner ads. No click-through ads. No ads popping up in the middle of your threads or posts. No word links interfering with what you type. Nobody pays this site to interfere with your enjoyment of it. We like it this way and we want to keep it this way.
Still, we do have to pay monthly hosting fees to a company that has been very reliable in its support of the board (virtually no outages in the past 5 years), plus there are other more minor expenses we incur.
We're proud of the fact that all this is made possible by the generous donations of our members.
So, if you have gained knowledge from your participation here
If someone in the Classified section had the bike, or accessories you were looking for
Or if you have sold something in Classifieds that you no longer need
If you've participated in discussions or just read about accessories you're interested in and that's helped you make a more-informed money-saving purchase from the right vendor
If you've learned how to do some of your own service/repair work, etc. . .
. . .and if you would like to support the BMWSportTouring.com community, please PayPal your donation to: BMWST.email@example.com

2018 Donors, so far. These names will transfer to our 2018 Donor List when we begin fundraising for this year.
Just a note to say Thank You. When we receive notification of your donation, it comes in the form of an email from PayPal. So if we send a Thank You note as a reply to the email, it goes to PayPal and not to you. We see the name of the sender, but since everyone uses screennames, we may not know who John Smith is and can't look up your actual email.
So if you didn't get a Thank You reply, that's why. We truly and sincerely appreciate all donations to help keep this site online and moving forward.
