Tow strap for broken dog bones

Broke the suspension bones on my BMW F650 Dakar in Death Valley this winter. Stuck about 50 miles from camp, so I used the tow strap I always carry to lash them together.

The rope wrapped around it was probably unnecessary, but who knows. Rode the bike on a rough dirt road for 15 miles and the highway back to camp.

Luckily I had a spare set in my tool box and kept riding.
