Thumbs up Motorcycle Towing...

My '06 experienced a bit of a problem... A&S was kind enough to send out a tow truck... I want to take this opportunity to share my experience.

Mike from "Motorcyles Only" arrived to work his magic... And he did. He knows BMW bikes. He knows what and where to place the tie downs. In fifteen mins, "Wild Blue" was on the trailer, tied down and ready to roll.

Mike knows his stuff. He's been in and around bikes since his very early 20's. He told me that he'll go anywhere to get a stranded rider... I admit, within reason... You break in Wyoming, don't expect too much. But if your stranded anywhere in NorCal, give this guy a call. He'll come get you... And he'll do it right.

Case in point: Last night at about 6:30pm, he rescued a rider in the Yuba City / Marysville area with a shredded tire. He took the bike and rider all the way up to Clipper Gap (the back way, no less) to get him home. That's service if you ask me...

He's worked with insurance companies, he'll work with you. I think he provides the kind of emergency motorcycle towing service that anyone would be happy to have.

Get a pad and pen out, cause you will want this info...

Note: I couldn't get the web site to come up, but it could be a problem on my end... I'll try later.
