Even the highest quality motorcycles can run into a problem…in the middle of a ride. That’s where roadside assistance enters the picture.

This handy coverage provides help when a maintenance issue arises and keeps you from being able to safely continue riding. It includes services and minor repairs that get your motorcycle back on the road after a breakdown.

What Does Motorcycle Roadside Assistance Cover?

Motorcycle roadside assistance will usually provide coverage 24/7. The exact coverage will depend on the specific plan, but there are some common things that are usually covered.

The Battery

If the motorcycle won’t start, someone can come help with a jump start.

If the jump-start didn’t work, they will tow your motorcycle to a location that you choose. There may be a limit, though, on how far the motorcycle can be towed.

The Tires

If you get a flat tire, there are a few options.

If you happen to have a spare, they can change it out for you.

Otherwise, they can tow your motorcycle to the nearest mechanic who can plug the tire.

If the tire is too damaged, your motorcycle can still be towed. The cost of the tire repair, however, usually won’t be covered.

The Fluids

If you run out of gasoline or oil, it can be delivered to you. Typically, you will need to pay for the fluid.

The Storage Compartments

Locked your keys in a compartment? It happens. A locksmith can come to your rescue!

The Features of Motorcycle Roadside Assistance

Some roadside assistance plans will offer convenience through technology. For example, use their app to request roadside assistance and avoid making a phone call (and being stuck on hold for a long time waiting to talk to someone).

Some roadside assistance plans include coverage in Canada as well as the United States.

The Cost of Motorcycle Roadside Assistance

The price tag tends to be relatively low. Usually, roadside assistance will cost around $20 a year.

The Buying Options

You can get motorcycle roadside assistance through a variety of ways:

  • Your insurance company. Sometimes, you can get a discount for bundling roadside assistance with your auto or home insurance.
  • A stand-alone service
  • A credit card.
  • A motorcycle dealership.

Different options will have different pros and cons, so be sure to do your research to find the best match for your needs.
