Allstate unveils GoodRide app for motorcycle riders

admin

Allstate Insurance Co. has announced the launch of GoodRide by Allstate, a new motorcycle application any iPhone user can download for free. The app is available immediately via the iTunes App Store.

Unlike other motorcycle apps that focus solely on ride routes or bike maintenance for a fee, GoodRide tracks rides, stores trip details and lets users share everything with their social networks, free of charge.

"The only thing more important than protecting the motorcycle is protecting the rider," says Bob Wasserman, SVP, e-Business at Allstate. "GoodRide serves as an extension of the company's commitment to rider safety and will help make the road both more safe and fun."

App features include the ability to:

  • Log Rides - track your routes, time and mileage for each ride. Add comments and a photo to every trip and store everything in the app.
  • Track Rides - connect to Facebook and Twitter and share the trip with family and friends.
  • Plan Rides - with everything from the rider checklist to local weather and gas prices, GoodRide helps prepare riders before they hit the road.
  • Keep Maintenance Logs - track every oil change and every flat tire. Set service alerts and keep the bike in top condition.
  • Call Good Hands Roadside Assistance - call for accident support and bike-friendly service vehicles will be on their way.
An Android version of GoodRide is scheduled for release in the fall. To view an online demonstration visit www.allstate.com/mobile.
