It doesn’t happen often, but it does happen: Usually it’s us who makes it happen on modern machinery (see number 5). When a rocky descent holed our Super Ténéré’s oil pan last year, that poor motorcycle wasn’t going anywhere under its own power. If you’re already paying for an AAA-type policy for your car(s), it’s a great idea to pay the extra $50 a year to have it cover your motorcycle and RV also. That $50 will save you quite a bit more than what you’ll pay Jethro’s Towing to have your bike flat-bedded out of West Pozo on a Sunday afternoon.
