AAA and Covid-19

For those of you who might was to go out for a ride these days AAA won't let you ride inside the cab with your bike if you should need a tow because of the virus.

I was 67 miles from home and had a oil leak not having the tools at hand to even get my fairings off I call for road service and found this out. I went to a auto parts store and bought or borrowed the tools to get it fixed and on my way. Would have been a pain in the if I had to have a tow and find a way home for myself also. Be warned.

No, the VFR details can be seen at VFRD middle of the page.

Short story the oil filter was dented on install and repeated heat cycles opened up a small whole for oil to all over the bike and 1/3 of the tire. Tool kit on bike did not even have enough tools to remove the fairing to see the problem.

that sucks. I have one of those filter socket wrench type things made of composite. Never an issue. I don't even have AAA on my bikes. Just worth it for the DMV and 4 wheel vehicles. So did you have to ride with the bike in the back of the wrecker?

No but I would have if I thought it an option took a couple of hours total but got everything together to get the filter off a new one installed and on my way. Fellow rider stopped and helped with proper tools for filter removal, bikers are good people. He had lost the lower part of his leg crashing his Ninja only a year ago and was back on bikes stump and all a real rider.
