Yesterday I rode about 20 miles home with a 4' x 8' sheet of coroplast loaded onto my rig.

No photo, but imagine standing the sheet up lengthwise on the lower struts between the bike an chair. Nylon straps around the front and rear of the sheet to keep it from shifting fore or aft, and one over the top to resist lifting.
Plenty of visibility over the top of the sheet, and no noticable effect on handling.

In the past I have carried full sheets of plywood this way as well.

When you don't have a car/truck, you learn how to make do...

Just junk from the hardware store.. Trying to finish my Man-cave downstairs.
Had a guy at the Home depot wondering why I would risk damaging a "classic" motorcycle by loading lumber on it.

Yeah, I will also get questions about how I am going to carry something on my motorcycle. But sometimes I forget that others might not consider that normal behavior.

When I was trying to buy the 4x8 sheet of coroplast the guy at the customer service counter kept saying, "You just want to ORDER a sheet today, right?" And I would say no, I want to buy one. This went back and forth several times before he finally pointed at my helmet sitting on the counter and asked just how I intended to get a 4x8 sheet home on a bike...
It just seemed so natural to me that I would carry it on the sidecar that I failed to comprehend what he was getting at as far as ordering vs. buying till he spelled it out. Doh!

Then he and a coworker actually came out to the parking lot to see if I could actually get it loaded.
They admitted that my setup looked much safer than what many people end up with when trying to load sheets onto the roof of a compact car.

I don't have any pictures, unfortunately.... Don't want to waste the generator charging the camera, lol.

But the Post-Apocalyptic Rat Rig has been doing its duty in this pseudopocalypse. :P

On Friday night, after the winds died down, I hauled a chainsaw, axe, and machete, and sawed/chopped my way to Virginia to stock up on gasoline, kerosene, and nonperishable foods, only to find that there was no power there either. -_-'

The next day, several of my buddies and I drifted together into an ad-hoc survivalist commune for the duration of the outage. Since then, I've put around 1500 miles on the rig, hauling supplies and such around, and exploring because there is nothing better to do. The Velorex frame seems to be holding up, despite driving on crap that it wasn't designed to handle, with more weight than it was designed to handle.

Warm beer is non-tasty, and my ass is very sore.

At one point, the wiring harness melted down. Since we lack power to run the soldering gun, the Hawk has sprouted a bunch of dangling wires and taped up wire nuts.

The phones still work, and so does the DSL when there's gas in the generator. It is an interesting time! I will be a bit saddened when things go back to normal....
