That is all great information to remember!! Thanks for sharing.
Last summer I met a guy on the side of the road with a broken throttle-cable so I pulled out some tools and hacked the handle-bar enough so that he could pull on the cable with a vice-grip to try to ride it home - then he ran outta gas and then a thunderstorm kicked-in and I felt so bad because I had no way to tow him to the nearest gas-station and I didn't have any spare fuel or any way to transfer it either ...
Now I carry spare fuel (MSR fuel-tank) but haven't got a strap - I'll take your ideas and get a strap setup for future cases like this!

Just waiting for the day that I become road-spaghetti - till then, I ride.
