Roadside Assistance Suggestions?

I'm looking at getting some sort of Roadside Assistance for my bike, anybody have any suggestions or advice? I insure my bike through progressive, not sure if they offer it, couldn't find any info on their website.
Thanks in advance

I've got AAA with RV Plus (I'm pretty sure that's what the extra its called). The extra coverage includes motorcycles and 100 miles of towing, not just the standard 3 miles. I'm not sure if my insurance has towing coverage, not sure what HOG's roadside assistance is like, but I've had the AAA with RV so long, I don't pay attention to what the others offer/include.

An added benefit of AAA is that it doesn't matter what vehicle you're in, you're covered, even if it's a friend's broke-ass truck. They'll come tow, as long as you're there with him.

I have AAA with the RV coverage meaning it covers motorcycles. I have used it twice over the past four years for friends bikes I was riding with and the service was great with no added expense.

Well worth the $89 per year. I think that was the price, maybe it was a little lower if anything.

Most MC insurance policies include towing up to $50, if it doesn't you can get it. If you are a member of HOG you get towing coverage up $100 to the nearest HD dealer. If you have the HD ESP you also have towing coverage up to $100 to the nearest HD dealer. Use the towing service that you have from HD first then submit any additional towing cost to your insurance company.

I was a HOG member for 2 years. I got the first year when I got my new FLTR and it was a complimentary free 1 year membership, I renewed the 2nd year but I found out in was pretty much a waste of money so I didn't renew. I use the towing from HOG 1 time when the rear wheel bearings went out at 16,000 miles. I have the HD ESP and towing on my insurance.

HOG coverage left me stranded in Kansas for hours on my way back from Alaska. I had to arrange my own transport and pay out of pocket. HOG promised to repay the $75 I paid for the lift to a nearby indy shop. I submitted the proper paperwork and have yet to be paid. That was eleven months ago.

I have had good luck several times over the years with roadside assistance from AMA. Quick service and no hassles.

+1 for AAA, I was going to get my bike towed with HOG until they told me it would be $125, and would have to be towed to the nearest HD dealer, not where I wanted it to go, almost forgot I had AAA, but I'm glad I did, cost $0 and towed where I wanted to go.
