I took my wife off on a shortish journey in celebration of her birthday this past weekend. On the return trip, we had a serious problem with our bike.
I called the MOA's roadside assistance program, which I VERY recently signed up for in anticipation of my summer vacation trip with my daughter. I can say now it might be the wisest $29 I spent all year.
The assistance folks did their jobs well & what I feel was very quickly on a Sunday afternoon. Within 2 hours of calling them, our bike was on a flatbed. The towing service that showed up was the 24th one the assistance folks had to call according to the woman on the phone!! The truck carried us 96.7 miles to my mechanic's shop & it cost me nothing out of pocket other than the tip I gave the towing crew.
In addition to thanking the BMW MOA's roadside assistance program, I'd also like to thank Bailey & Sons Towing of Mechanicsville, VA, who did a GREAT job. It wasn't the way I wanted to end our weekend, but because of the combined efforts of these people, it wasn't at all a terrible experience.
