Hi. I'd love to hear recommendations for a good roadside assistance program. The AMA was recommended to me, but I notice they only tow 35 miles. I think I have seen that AAA also offers a program.

Any advice appreciated. I used to have a Honda and they had a great program as part of their Honda Riders Club, and I used it several times. What do Strom owners do?

Thanks much!

Fred

I get RSA from my insurance company "Progressive". $8 per year, and they guarantee to get you towed to a local dealer. Haven’t had to use them yet and hope I never will.

I have MoTow from the American Motorcyclists Association, I haven't had to use it but I have heard good things about it. They guarantee that you will get a tow vehicle capable of handling a motorcycle.

I have motow as well. I think there are two things you want to keep in mind here:
1. you don't just want somebody to tow you, you want somebody to tow you who actually knows something about bikes because it's pretty easy to skrew something up if you don't know what you are doing. The motow people do.

2. 35 miles is a long tow. The idea is to get you to a shop,
not haul you back from a trip up north. I think you'll find
40+ miles very expensive, no matter who you use.

The v-strom never breaks down, and if it did I would fix it myself.

I purchased this one:
http://www.koa.com/rvroadhelp/

I have not used it, but know people who have used it and report good service when needed. I like the no limits coverage it offers. also it covers any vehicle (bike, car, truck, rv, etc) that you are using at the time vs being specific to one vehicle.

hope this helps,

Garry

I have AMA motow and love it.

A few years back I got a flat rear tire in Nova Scotia on my way home on Sunday. I broke out the cell phone, dialed up motow, and only got my membership number and location (exit xy, highway ab, in NS canada) out of my mouth before my cell battery crapped out. I figured I was outa luck but 35 minutes later a flatbed pulled up and said he was from MOTOW. Unreal.
The driver knew of a dealer that was opened sundays, dropped me and my bike there. Dealer had a tire that worked (kinda of) and I was back on the road about 2 hours after going flat.

Motow will bring you more than 35 miles, you just have to pay for the extra milage out of pocket.

Motow also has an extended coverage that covers all of your other vehicles, cars, trucks, trailers.
