Remember the American Motorcyclist Association's "Mo-Tow" service, with it's separate fee and subscription period, and how you had to double-check the expiration date or perhaps renew before heading out on tour? Well, forget all that. When you join or renew your AMA membership in the new "enhanced" categories (Champion, Defender, Hall of Fame or Competition Plus), and opt for automatic renewal, you get AMA Roadside Assistance for free, linked directly to your membership. (Little secret: if you're among the first 25,000, you'll also get a $10 BikeBandit.com gift card). Roadside Assistance is hugely more comprehensive that Mo-Tow, which was basically just a tow service, and includes coverage for all motorcycles, cars, pickups, motorhomes and trailers registered to you, your spouse, and dependent children under the age of 24, living at home or away at college. The full list of plan benefits are on AMA's site here
. Hopefully, one never needs these benefits, but IMHO it's a little extra piece of mind well worth having.
