Anyone considering AA recovery for a trip in Europe, don't. Just returned and they made it a complete nightmare.

My fault initially, left disk lock on and tried to drive off whilst in France. Resulted in bent disk to the extent that when you applied brake nothing happened until you pump it a few times. This was 3 weeks ago yesterday, called AA who said man would be out to fix it. He turned up after a couple of hours but spoke no english, i managed to explain problem. He scratched his head then decided he could not fix it and had to take it away. Bike was loaded into van and tied down after a fashion and taken to Honda dealer in Nimes. I had reservations about the way it was tied and the fact that he had no tools so was never really going to attempt to fix it. I thought to myself that if it is damaged then the AA should sort it out. Reading small print, this is not the case, the AA is not responsible for any damage caused by 3rd parties they may have used. A number of calls and not returned calls later I found that the Honda dealer only has one mechanic and he was on holiday for the subsequent week. This meant he got back from work 2 days before our sailing from Dunkirk. I suggested there might be somewhere else it could be fixed but the AA assured me that it would be fixed the day he came back and I would be able to pick my bike up and get to Dunkirk. I spent the last 3 days of holiday on the phone to the AA trying to get answers, re-arrange ferries etc. Their operatives are not working to the same guidelines so the information we received varied considerably. End result is over 3 weeks later, bike is still in Nimes, I've been back a week and still no sign of it being fixed. I have been told that one of the front disks will be replaced, and it will cost me 320 euros, 19 of which is for labour. We shall see...
