SPOT Creates Partnership with BMW Motorcycle Owners of America


Covington, LA (May 9, 2017) -  SPOT LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Globalstar, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GSAT) and a leader in satellite messaging and emergency notification technologies, has formed a partnership with the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America (BMW MOA) organization to provide members with a special offer on SPOT Gen3 and SPOT Trace devices.

“We are excited about this partnership with BMW MOA and the opportunity to work with the organization’s membership base,” said Dave Soregaroli, National Sales Manager for SPOT. “SPOT products are a perfect fit for motorcyclists’ adventures and can provide peace of mind for their family and friends while they are out riding. The ability to alert search and rescue with the push of a button is key to the safety off all riders on or off the grid.”

The BMW MOA is a network of 32,000 BMW motorcycle enthusiasts. Members have access to many resources specifically tailored to the needs of BMW motorcycle riders. Benefits include monthly issues of the BMW Owner News magazine, Platinum Road Side Assistance and Tire Coverage, and over 80 money-saving discounts, which now includes SPOT devices.

“As proud members of the BMW MOA as well as being SPOT Ambassadors, Lisa and I are excited to see these two powerful brands joining forces. This is a great partnership that combines the invaluable services and rider benefits of both groups to improve rider security for all. That’s a winning combination,” said Simon Thomas of '2 Ride The World'. “We rely heavily on our SPOT Gen3s for safety and recommend that all riders carry one.”

 “It is our goal to provide the members of BMW MOA with access to the best products, content and gear available to BMW motorcyclists,” said Bob Aldridge, Executive Director of the BMW MOA. “Our members are excited about the addition of SPOT and we are looking forward to keeping our riders safer and better protected with the SPOT Gen3 and SPOT Trace devices.”
