AMA for me. I think every motorcyclist should belong to the organization that lobbies for us and fights to protect our freedoms. Roadside assistance is FREE with auto renewal of membership and covers all vehicles in the family including kids at college. My daughter had a flat while away at college and got a tow to a tire center. That alone was worth the price of AMA membership. She also used the Lock-Out Assistance one time at college.

Also, I've saved way more than the membership cost on discounts for parts at BikeBandit every year for the past five years.

From their website:

I have had Progressive for over 15 yrs now, and I have the clause of "Emergency Services" for my Connie.
I am lucky in the fact that I have never had a claim, ever, and I know I pay next to nothing for it.
I have full replacement coverage for $98 a Yr..
Man I love being over 50 and grandfathered in on rates.
Ride safe all,
Greg

I have the Progressive with Roadside Svc. My buddy also has it. We were on a week long camping trip headed up into Arkansas when his FJR would not start after refueling. Long story short, Progressive towed his bike about 60 miles to the closest authorized shop and put him up for a night in the Holiday Inn Express while the shop had a battery Fed-Ex'ed. Battery was on my buddy, but Progressive flipped the bill for Fed-Ex, as it was cheaper than them paying for a room another night. Awesome svc. When we got to our camp site the next night, the rep from Progressive had called and did a follow up to make sure he was good. Unusally good service in today's time.

I had a break down with my BMW RT last fall at Grand Coulee WA. My AARP auto coverage sent a flat bed wrecker from Spokane to pick me up. We arrived in Spokane after the dealer closed and they unloaded me at the motel of my choice and arrived at 8:00 AM to reload the bike and deliver me to the dealer. Total trip for the wrecker about 180 miles, 90 miles carrying the bike.
NO Charge. . . I was towed one other time by AARP when I dropped my scooter (Burgman 650) in a bad snow storm going over Shasta Pass in California. I paid $350.00 to the wrecker and AARP reimbursed me for all but $50 and told me if I had called them and let them pick the wrecker it would have all been covered.

I have towing on my BMW Owners membership, my AllState Insurance but they are all very limited. The AARP Rocks!

I have AAA but when I needed it for my bike down in Kentucky last summer I found out that only my car and truck were covered. I thought I would be out the cost of the tow, but when I got home I checked with my insurance company and they covered it. I have Foremost Insurance. I'm a HOG member, but their coverage is only for Harleys of course. That's the first time I ever was stranded on the side of the road with any kind of vehicle and it has made me pay more attention to this kind of information.

I have heard a lot of good things about Foremost. Unfortunately, I live in North Carolina and they make it so hard for insurance companies to do business here that many companies won't insure here. Foremost is one of them.
