Have heard from, at this point, four new Honda owners that Honda has discontinued the roadside assistance plan that goes with their Honda Club thingy when you buy a new bike.

However, it's rumored (no confirmation yet) that it will continue to be honored for memberships purchased before the assistance was phased out, and will continue to be honored with renewals of those memberships.

So:

If you like the program, and have a membership, don't let it lapse. You won't get it with your new membership ;)

Anyone with definate confirmation / refutation of any of these points, please post them up. Link 'em if you got 'em ;)

Thanks.

Our understanding was that if we wanted to renew, we'd have to do it through a Honda auto dealer, and new Honda bike owners would be able to do the same.

You can also get roadside assistance added to most cell phone plans. With a lot of cell phone providers, it is cheaper than an equivalent plan you would get elsewhere.

You have to pay more per year to have the road side assistance. It came free with my bike but was phased out. If I am not mistaken it was 30 for a year to rejoin with road side assistance.

Just got my new membership from a purchase in march 08. No was on the membership card for roadside assistance.

When was this perk "phased out" or more to the point, when did they decide they needed another "profit center"?

:wink:

AAA offers road side assistance for any vehicle car, truck or motorcycle. I ran out of gas (found out the hard way my reserve wasnt working right) and they brought me 2 gallons. Plus i was out of state. :openface:

I used to renew the Club membership for the two of us. I let it lapse this year. I don't go to any of the Club functions, I don't use the 'garage' feature on the site, and I have AAA in case my bike needs to be towed.

I couldn't justify paying $80 a year for the two of us, just to read a copy of Red Rider.

I was not even offered a membership when I bought my new bike! I didn't even know something like this was available.

The Honda Club info is usually included in the packet of paperwork (manual, warranty, etc) that you get with the bike.

It used to be AAA did NOT include motorcycles in it's services - do you know from experience that they NOW do? Will be checking with my AAA memberships to confirm this info. :roll:

It may vary from state to state, but AAA covers M/Cs in its RV package.

Got to pay extra for the AAA motorcycle coverage. Here in WA is AAA PLUS coverage.

I had to have one of my Guzzi's towed two years ago. No AAA tow available. This was in Weed, CA. Out in the sticks north of Mt Shasta.

Cost me $100 to tow it 17 miles to Weed. Send the receipt to AAA, within two weeks I had a check for $100 in hand.

Too bad they didn't cover the cost of the UHaul to get the bike back to Seattle!!!

Even though I might not need a tow, the maps and such that I get and the fact that they reimburse for a non AAA company tow is worth the $$ every year.

Apparently in CA m/cs are no longer covered for towing with AAA. We found that out AFTER we plunked down $102 to join...wound up getting MoTow through AMA as a backup.

Finally got around to checking at the local AAA in southeastern PA. The deal for Pennsylvania is:

AAA has RV plus and it costs $80 year. This would cover roadside assistance for towing motorcycles.
