Default Motorcycle Find

Found Superman's motorcycle fender in the sand wash bottom of Ten Mile Canyon during the Moab trip I describe in the Events section of the forum. Being an old enduro rider I found it interesting as I had never seen anyone go to the trouble of stitching up a torn fender - not once, but twice! I found it funny that someone would go that trouble only to lose it because the attaching bolts fell out. The attach point holes were in fine shape so they must have loosened up and fallen out leaving Superman's bike fenderless.

He must have been better with a needle and thread than with a wrench....

i used to stitch together my CR250's plastic all the time. kept it alive for one more race and was cheaper than new plastic. I just used zip ties.

Cool find
