Maybe a club member has a trailer & could help you out? What's wrong with your bike?

Catlett's Towing
Davidsonville, MD
410-956-2466

They towed my Rockster after it was wrecked and handled it like it was not a wrecked bike.

That's the one I heard about! I was searching for DC Scooter Towing and that did not work. Thanks.

There's also Two Wheel Towing:


9151 Brookville Rd
Silver Spring, MD 20910
Phone number (301) 587-6423

Haven't had the need in many years, but he was great when Walt's chain broke on the CB750 during the Ride for Kids many years ago.

I used DC Scooter Transport to take the bike from Herndon to Beemers Uber Alles in Manassas. George found out that it was only water in the gas tank. :emb:
