During an extreme Winter Dualsport ride, I encountered a serious problem out in the remote bush. My water pump hose got sliced by some brush! Had to make a quick fix using some duct tape....always carry duct tape.
Then, go to the nearest town & find a suitable replacement hose.
When in need, you improvise. This was some kind of industrial machine hose....so tough
and hard, that I could barely cut it with my big hunting knife. It didn't help matters that the temperature was about 15 degrees below freezing (the entire 4 days we stayed out in the bush). And, how lucky was I to find a hose with the right diameter to work out a temporary solution? This was the only store of any kind for miles on end. A little Mom & Pop general store which had some hardware.
Anyway, I promised myself I'd address this "exposure" issue when I got home. Well, I did. Here's how:
Issue resolved. Won't ever happen to me again. Nuff said!
