 Thanks for the report. 'member' is not a valid role in WordPress or
 BuddyPress, so when you say that you "would like to set the default
 registration role to member", you are asking for something impossible :)
 The current version of BuddyPress does not add any roles to the Roles
 dropdown menu. (A future version of BP will probably do so.)

 By default, the registration role is Subscriber, which means that the user
 does not have the ability to create new posts in the Dashboard. BuddyPress
 (or the packaged bbPress) does not care about this role - it's only
 relevant from WP's point of view.

 I'm marking this ticket as invalid. If it turns out that I'm
 misunderstanding your question, or if you have an idea for how BP role
 management (or lack thereof) might be enhanced, you're welcome to provide
