Glad it wasn't a jam up for her and she was able to get a tow and get back on the road. A lot of people are unfamiliar with the safe and releasable ways to tow a motorcycle, such as the peg wrap and the bar wrap.
Oh, you mean a TOW. Wow, I've never had to do that before. I've strap towed a couple times, mainly because I didn't like where I was at for the planned repair. Then again, when I tend to need that stuff, I'm no where near a facility with a tow truck and I don't have cell service.
If I was going to do the bar rap I would tie my bar with the ''getaway '' knot , its hard to explain but the rope dont wrap around the bar
if towing goes south you pull the tag end and the rope comes off your bar ,no wrap around like other knots.
It called the highwaysmen hitch,or there is the tumble hitch,either one unwraps itself with no rope
wrapped around your bar,when you pull the tag the only rope is in your hand.good for pulling boats too.
