Motorcycle Towing

Motorcycle towing is a service that has been around for a long time. Motorcycles can get stuck in the mud, have mechanical issues and other problems that cause riders to need to be towed. Most people think of the tow truck when they think of motorcycle towing, but there are other scenarios where this service may come in handy.

Motorcycle Towing – Safety First

To tow your motorcycle, you will need to first secure it onto a trailer. This can be done with straps or chains. Before attaching the chains, inspect them for rusted parts and other damage. If there is any damage, replace them before using them to pull your motorcycle.

Once the chain is attached, it should be tight enough to hold the motorcycle securely on its trailer but not so tight that it causes damage to either the bike or its owner when driving down bumpy roads or over speed bumps in parking lots. The same goes for straps: they should be as snug as possible without being too tight (or they could potentially cause injury). A good rule of thumb is if there’s any kind of give at all when giving each strap a tug then it’s probably not tight enough; if there are no gaps between any part of your bike and its bed then something’s wrong!

Are You Prepared For A Breakdown?

  • Make sure you have a spare tire, jack and lug wrench when you leave on your trip. If you don’t have one, find out where the closest auto parts store is and stock up before hitting the road.
  • Check your oil level before leaving, and refill it if necessary. It’s also important to check your tire pressure; low tires are dangerous in many ways, including causing blowouts or flat spots on the treads that can lead to accidents.
  • Get a cellular phone for emergencies (and for checking weather reports). Cell phones work everywhere in America these days—even out in remote areas where cell phone service is spotty at best—but they’re especially useful if an accident occurs while traveling on an interstate or highway where there are no land lines available.
  • Keep an emergency kit in your car with basic tools like pliers and screwdrivers (for removing wheels), jumper cables (in case someone else needs help), jumper packs/batteries (to start cars), flares (for directing traffic), first-aid kit items such as bandages & antiseptic wipe packets)

Don’t Forget Your AAA!

If you’re in an accident, don’t try to figure out how to get home on your own. Call AAA right away and they’ll be there in minutes.

You should also know that AAA has other benefits besides roadside assistance. They can offer discounts on car rental, hotel rooms, gas stations, and more. Their website has a lot of great information about how to find the best deals on these things!

Have a Plan for Breakdowns

Have your bike serviced regularly and make sure it is in good running condition before starting your trip. Also, have spare fuses and parts on hand so you can easily repair minor problems when they occur. If possible, carry some tools that will help in the event of a breakdown (e.g., small wrench or pliers). If you don’t already have one, consider purchasing an emergency kit designed specifically for motorcycles; these kits often include a tire inflator/sealer and other useful items such as food bars and water bottles as well as gloves, goggles or face shields that may protect against dust or debris while riding through rough terrain.[3]


Motorcycle riders who are prepared for an unexpected incident are usually not affected by a breakdown. If you’re going out on a long ride, make sure that you have extra fuel in case there are no gas stations along the way and also carry tools to change tires or fix problems that might occur while riding. Additionally, it’s important to keep your motorcycle in good working order so that it doesn’t break down unexpectedly!
