Last time I was out riding, I lost the right hand plastic cover. I haven't replaced it yet. I took one of my sons for a ride yesterday. Oops. that plastic side cover is the head shield for the exhaust. It melted the heal of his right boot. Thankfully we stopped and I noticed the black 'mud' on the exhaust pipe. "Hey that's not mud" I thought to myself and pretty quickly I realized what had happened. We were on top of a 'mountain', and all we had to work with was the tin foil wrapping our left over pizza we packed for lunch, some jumbo zip ties, safety wire and electrical tape. Hmmmm.... Maybe tying the tinfoil on would be enough, but we started looking around and sure enough, within five minutes we had two 16oz energy drink cans.

Never leave home without safety wire and pliers:

I prefer to think of it as sponsorship rather than copyright infringement.

Hey now. Careful with that Appalachia stuff. I'm down here in East Tennessee.

We use Pabst cans for that kinda stuff. Not some caffinated Kool aid cans.

This was a high class area for sure. Hardly any of the cans/bottles had bullet holes.

Nice custom touch. You can change out the can every week for a new look!
