Motorcycle towing

Anyone know a reasonably priced motorcycle towing company? Just bought a new bike but my regular guy seems to be on vacation.

Already tried calling a bunch of towing companies in Surrey and Langley, but they all charge $180+ for their flatbeds

Bike's going from Langley to Delta.

Thanks!!

bcaa with motorcycle towing is ~120 bucks a year, comes with 6 tows per year, might be a good option

Dumb question but new bike ... Langley to Delta, why can't you ride it? Unless by 'new' you mean new to you but needs some mechanical work?

BCCA is your best bet, and they're usually pretty good about it. For $140 you get 6 tows and they'll even bring you gas or a battery boost too. it's pretty slick

Tried BCAA, but you need to have the "motorcycle towing" option selected when you sign up for the year. Also, they will only provide roadside assistance to insured vehicles. They don't tow non-running bikes.

Guy's name is Todd Smith

He has a nice enclosed trailer (Wells Fargo Style) and a P/U truck

He does a lot of work with Daytona in Surrey

From Daytona in Surrey to PoCo was about $ 100 when I had my bike delivered

(before comments new rider, new bike, winter, rain 1700 cc, 105 lbs/ft of torque, new tires .... not a good mix)

see above. would probably be your best bet. or if it runs and is insured and the only thing preventing you from moving it is a license, get a buddy to ride it.
