Best Tow Service?

I was about to sign up with AMA's MOTOW and then figured why not see what others like. I want a bike/car/trailer package and the 35 mile limit seems a littlw low with AMA. Any better choices?

Howdy, Ron - check this outfit out. I hear good stuff about 'em and am in the market to improve/upgrade what I've had. Good luck.

Best tow service.

I have used MoTow for three years and just renewed it this year. I only have it for the BMW and have AAA for the car. I have had occasion to use the MoTow service twice and had good results. Before the BMW I had a Yamaha Road Star and had a flat tire one and half hours south of Fairbanks, AK. I had a tube but no jack and they sent a truck out pulling a trailer and we fixed it on the spot. No cost to me. Then another flat on the Yamaha 30 miles from home and they hauled me home. Again no charge.

Before I had insurance I was in Colorado on the Yamaha, had a flat and had to get hauled into Evergreen, CO. That cost me $200.

Dick is right.... RV Roadhelp is the best.

I still have the BMW towing service on my 06 LT, but a friend told me about Motorcycle Towing Services. http://www.mtstowing.com/
I just purchased the cheapest service for a back up. They will send a truck and you have to pay for the transportation. I think $15.00 a year. If I am broke down (yea right on a LT ) I want options on getting rescued.
Check it out.
