As for crossing slick things, patches of ice, wet metal plates, railroad tracks, etc, Do not do anything when you get to them. Aim straight across them, do not accelerate, decelerate or anything. Just cruise straight across the slick area.
I have a Coleman magnetic tank bag. It has caused a few small scratches on the tank but I try to be careful with it to minimize the risk of that.
You should even pull in the clutch so you just glide across, no acceleration or deceleraion that way.Scott
What might you recommend instead that I can grab-and-go with
I've been thinking about getting rid of it for exactly that reason. But it's SO CONVENIENT!! :-) What might you recommend instead that I can grab-and-go with (not a backpack, I need to leave my back free for cargo)...
