    That's pretty sweet.

    Tore side wall on trail bike tire and the tube was popping through. Took my debit card out and folded it in half and put it between the tire and the tube so it would stay in.

    My favorite was on a dirtbike in the middle of the sand dunes (glamis) my buddy crashed and put a hole in his radiator on a kawasaki 450.

    I plugged it so that it would run on only the left radiator by sicking branches in the tubes and using the hose clamps to seal it. Then i pissed in the top tube to fill it with "water" and capped it off. Got back the 10 miles with no damage.

    The RD was more of a chain guide. The red bull can keep the chain from eating the levers and I'm pretty sure we whittled down a stick to achieve the proper tension.
