Question Emergency Roadside Assistance?

Surfing around the web, I see several sources for motorcycle roadside assistance. Can you point me in the direction of the best?

Re: Emergency Roadside Assistance?

The one that I've seen consistently rated highly by members of this forum is the Good Sam RV service.
Here's the link.

I have no personal experience with them.

Plus 1 on Good Sam. But A little inside advice Good sam uses a company called Road America for there Road Side Service. Road America also provides service for "Harley Owners Group" plus numerous motorcycle & scooter factory warranty roadside service. If your insurance has Roadside as them who provides it.

Re: Emergency Roadside Assistance?

Get some good karma points -- become a member of the AMA to protect your motorcycle rights, and for slightly more (can't remember, but it's cheap), get the membership package with roadside assistance -- all for about as much as some charge for roadside assistance alone.

I have had RV Roadhelp for a number of years. If you own a BMW there is none better since they will tow your bike to the nearest authorized dealer, which sometimes is several hundred miles. For one low annual fee all vehicles you own are covered. I have had occasion to use them twice. Once when my wife's car had a flat in the garage and I was out of town. They responded within 30 minutes and installed the spare for her. At CCR in Missouri a couple years ago, my LT's engine failed and the bike was towed to Engles in Kansas City for repair. In both instances there was no out of pocket expense for me as all was paid for by RV Roadhelp.

That's the one, Paul. And wow, looks like they have a good special goin' on. I've been meaning to join now for the last few years - guess I'll git off the fence and do it. I know how well they took care of Monte when he had LT troubles in MO. RVroadhelp smoothed the way for getting him back in the saddle when Engle had the bike for repairs.
