Safe Ride Roadside Assistance

Anyone have any experience with this company. We're taking delivery of our 2015 Classic in about a week or two and picking a roadside service seems to be an exercise in pain. Every service that we have researched has people who love it and people who hate it; bar none. I've narrowed my search down to two: Safe Ride and Good Sam. There is some interesting differences in the way they use the English language, which gives room to how they (legally) respond to a similar situation.

Take "flat tire servicing". Good Sam says " they may, on occasion, and whenever possible make arrangements for a member to purchase a tire(s) for delivery to the disablement scene.

Safe Ride - same scenario: delivery of a comparable tire to the disablement site or for towing of your vehicle to a repair facility.

With the Safe Ride agreement, there is no "May", "on occasion" or "whenever possible". Now I'm not so naive to think that this difference in language is any kind of a guarantee, but it sure leaves GS a lot of room for saying "it's not possible" or whatever. It also leaves room with Safe Ride for a legal action if they don't perform vs GS has a legal out built in. Maybe I'm picking on the wording a bit much, but don't insurance companies do the same things.

Any thoughts on this insanity would be appreciated.

Safe Ride is a new one for me. First check your insurance. It may provide for roadside assistance. I have been using GS for about 5 years. Really can not attest to its quality as I have never had to make use it.


Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

I had never hears of Safe Ride either, but another member out of CA had mentioned Overland Insurance in AZ for insurance. I contacted them and they said that they offered this service.
