For better or worse, I recently dropped AAA after many years with them. They were just getting more restrictive, and more expensive. Also, their general direction seems to be moving away from the "automobile club" values and more into a cruise and travel agency organization. I was getting tired of funding this activity when they were spending little on automotive/road issues.
I ended up going with the AMA's road service now being offered with membership. Also, I have additional coverage with my bike insurance (Progressive) and the BMW roadside assistance with the new bike.
These other packages have less towing miles tied to them than my "deluxe" AAA membership, but for the number of times I have used AAA (zero) over the years, a big towing bill every once and awhile would still be cheaper than maintaining their costly service.
All that said, the only thing I ever DID get from AAA was hotel discounts. I may end up going back to a "basic" AAA service at some point, just for that. But we'll see.
