I prefer black electric tape myself. It has got me home many a time. I used a coat hanger for a plug wire once when someone decided they needed my plug wire more then I did.

My repair kit includes WD-40 and Duct tape, if it should move and doesn't use the WD-40.
If it moves and shouldn't use the Duct tape.

Hobbies: Coca cola and a ball of tin foil will erase rust spots on chrome. Ball up the tin foil & dip it in the coke and rub gently. But be careful doing it during wasp season! The sugar will draw bees while you doing it. It does work. Done it on my car rims too.

Hey old bull I've got a plan for washing my bike. I'm fixin to paint the tins with truck bed liner matereal, everything els is de chromed or de shined already 'cept the wheeles, front end, handlebars and exhaust. All I'll have to "rub" after washing will be those items and the light lenses.

keep a minature flashlight powered by watch batteries and a "chem light" in your tool pouch just in case its been a really long time since you stored that flashlight. the watch batteries store longer than conventional bateries and the flash light is much smaller (diode bulb prefered). Electrical work by feel is a B$#@!!!

Stay off of secondary or backroads as much as possible when below freezing,interstate lanes more clear. Having a 600+ bike on top of you is no fun.

Keep a couple of baggies under your seat for when you get in a rainstorm to slide your pocket contents in and keep them dry if you left home with out a rainsuit.
Take a ride close to home on your reserve to see how far you can go on reserve.

That sounds like a great idea and I'll try that. Makes sense! I also like the idea of this thread!

I don't have anything to offer right at the moment other then one thing everybody in the world already knew except me: Make DAMN sure you're looking at the right scale when you're using a torque wrench. I now have a little dot of bright red paint at the end of the inch-scale....
