Combining Smartphones and Motorcycles…Safely
GoodRide (SM) by Allstate is a free app for your iPhone that combines fun and social media with useful motorcycle data tools. From creating a log of your ride and sharing it, to getting a 3 day weather forecast, to keeping track of maintenance on your motorcycle – GoodRideSM has something for every rider. These are my three favorite features:
Let’s face it. Everyone these days has a million things to remember. Meetings, birthdays, dentist appointments – without the use of digital reminders it can be hard to keep track of everything.
Routine maintenance on your motorcycle is no different. If you don’t write down the mileage of the last oil change, do you remember when you’re due for another one? The GoodRideSM app features a maintenance log to help you to keep track of things like oil changes and due dates for state safety inspections. Using the alert option on the maintenance log, you can let your phone do the remembering.
Good Hands Roadside Assistance
Unfortunately, sometimes on the road of life things can go wrong. Maybe you’ve run out of gas or worse yet, need to have your motorcycle towed somewhere. The GoodRide app puts a little peace of mind in your pocket with the Roadside Assistance feature.
When you call the number listed on the app, a motorcycle-friendly service truck will be dispatched to assist you. Good Hands Roadside Assistance is a pay-as you go, pre-set pricing program. You do not need to be an Allstate customer to take advantage of this service. I feel better knowing that when I’m traveling alone in an unfamiliar place – I’ve always got a contact to reach out to for help.
Using your smartphone’s locations services, the Find Gas feature will show you a listing of gas stations nearby. You also have the option to sort the list by the cost per gallon. With the prices steadily creeping up at the pump, I love this feature. Cha-ching!
