Luckily I haven't had a chance to use this yet, but for the price and size, it's something that everyone should carry. If you are the type that ventures of the beaten path, you definitely need one. You'd be surprised how long it takes to walk what you just rode in a few minutes. You can of course use a rope, but chances are it won't be rated as high as this strap and it will most likely not be as small and compact. (Posted on 4/11/12)
We were deep in the woods - in snow - when our buddy on his DL-650 V-Strom lost his clutch plowing through the snow.
Since there were hills to get over to get out he'd have to have left the bike about 20 miles in the forest & it was going to snow again that night!!!
I've been carrying my Buddy tow around for 10+ years & this was the 1st time it was needed & it saved the day! Now everyone carries one. Nice thing is they're small & light & don't take up much room and can fit anywhere. (Posted on 3/8/12)
