    Upon deciding to move a gate post prior to completing our fence to make it a bit wider, I discovered the fnecing company had drilled into our sewer line with the auger when they installed it 7 months ago.

    Never showed any signs of leakage that we saw, so hopefully the dirt/cement kept it somewhat closed this whole time :eek1

    Amyway, on to what I made. It was 1 am by the time I could get home to do anything with it. Lowes was closed, nowhere to buy polumbing materials that time of the night. A quick trip to walmart, bought a $0.97 Cinderella place mat and some silicon. Dug it out, wiped off the pipe, siliconed the edges, and zip tied the place mat around the hole for a 24hr patch for showers the next morning until the plumber arrived.

    Managed to have only a slight drip with the shower running full blast. :lol3

    And I don't even own a KLR.... :deal

    Very good! But, why do you need a plumber?

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. I was insinuating that in my own jury rigging, duct tape and baling wire using, hillbilly methodology, that you had already completed a proper and permanent repair. Carry on.

    Ha, yeah, gotcha now. Eh, something about sewage just screams "get it done right" to me, but otherwise I'd be on the same page.

    Decided to I wanted to build myself a trailer to pull behind My KLR.
    So I did.

    [​IMG]

    Then the Grand Daughters called while I was putting it together and asked if I wanted to come over and ride bicycles with them. And that got me to thinking, I should make the trailer capable of taking it with me. This way I wouldn't have to drag the Diesel Pickup out just to go over for a bike ride.
    So I added that too.
    Total cost about $100.

    And I built all the crash bars, pannier racks, Panniers and other stuff on the KLR too. Even built a rifle scabbard holder into the rear pannier rack.
    (Just in case the SHTF while I'm still alive.
    Which is looking like it might.)




    Figured out I'd Powder Coat all the tubing my favorite color.
    So I did!

    Thank you kindly! When I bought the KLR in 06 I wanted something I could work on. Modify and crash without having a heart attack.

    I'm blessed with a shop full of tools, an understanding wife, and plenty of time to build things. And I'm cursed with never being satisfied with leaving anything stock. Bend it, shape it, make it better!

    Very much so. Since it has much less fat than belly bacon it doesn't get quite as crisp.

    I'm not sure this is worthy of the original and hand crafted stuff that's in this thread but I suppose I have to start somewhere. Just made one of these to add to my camping kit for some future motorcycle trips.
