Do you have recovery cover?

I was driving home last night on the A1231, when I spotted a sad looking red Triumph Spitfire 1500 stopped with its bonnet up. I went up one junction and came back to see if there was anything I could do. It turned out that spitfire that it was experiencing fuel problems and the owner had done as much as he could as the battery was going flat with the repeated attempts to start, he was now waiting for the AA. The owner was pleased that someone had stopped, and said I was the first person to stop in the hour and half that he had been there.    
Although he was waiting for the AA, sadly he had to trek from where his car was in search of someone with a phone, so that he could ring the AA and join to try and get them to help him.
So do you have recovery cover, I know mine is included in with my insurance? Do you go take a phone with you when you go out in the Triumph?
Happy motoring
