Have it, but haven't used it (Good Sam).

Which explains your odd spelling of the Golden State's name. And Wayne is still with us.

This kind of assistance is included with coverage through Geico and AARP insurances.

I don't know if Allstate (Sears) has improved their profile and practices over the last 15+ years but they used to have the poorest record for payouts of any insurance company in the US.

I've had experience with Geico's roadside assistance for both MC and automobile and found it excellent. Very responsive and helpful. Haven't had to use my AARP feature yet. AARP, if you are "of age" has considerably lower ins. rates than anyone I've found yet. Saved me $200+ dollars over Geico. (And I have nothing but good experience with Geico.)


I knew I'd end up disillusioned. I just thought it would be better than this.

Good Sam vs AAA (vs ...)?

Nobody's mentioned anything about BMWMOA's endorsed "Platinum Cycle Upgrade" for $26.

Anybody have any experience with or comments?

I dropped AAA after twenty years. Found I can get roadside assistance for much less with my current insurance. My r1100r is covered by Progressive (liability) that includes roadside service for $65 per year. Foremost did not offer the service. Used Progressive service couple times, no complaints.

I guess the same insurance company is different in each state. In NC, Progressive will not sell the roadside assistance piece without collision. I don't pay collision, so I can't get the roadside assistance. Bummer...

AAA In NC will not cover motorcycles unless you go to the RV coverage, which gets quite expensive...

I looked at the BMWMOA's coverage and the AMA, but the coverage seemed a bit skimpy as to how far they will tow. Many of my rides take me off the beaten path, so the coverage would have been pretty much worthless.

I have Good Sam coverage for my vehicles. Haven't used it, so I have no experience to report. I hope it works as promised....
