We provide roadside assistance within Alaska and below the Arctic Circle. We will provide a replacement motorcycle if one is available. If you wreck your motorcycle we are not contractually obligated to provide a replacement. See also the Road Side Assistance FAQ.

Yes, you can travel to Canada. The motorcycle registration and insurance card may be requested by the border agent (ask us during motorcycle pickup for more details). We do not offer roadside assistance in Canada so you will need to get the motorcycle to the border and we will pick it up from there.
