    It's amazing what you can do with a Motel 6 garbage can. Yes, Motel 6 because they forecasted severe thunderstorms in Branson, where I landed. Was going camp at Lake Busiek in Highlandville, Missouri but between the gravel road at the lake, the distance away you have to park the bike, the lugging I would have to do and the severe thunderstorms, I made a field decision. Anyway, I covered the bike as not to reveal the caper which works out well.

    If you had this sticker, it would be perfect for that field repair:

    Had to add some structural strength as the wind blast from under the bike kept bellowing out the bottom so a little paracord did the trick. Now we rollin.

    Very important to have odds and ends like paracord, 100mph tape, ect in one's kit when travelling, like Mike is. We can see how useful and necessary it becomes.
