Great minds think alike, Bluegoatwoods!

I was going to recommend lashing straps too, assuming nobody else mentioned it first. Good thing I actually read the previous posts first.

I've always carried a lashing strap with me because it's what I prefer for strapping loads on my rack. It wasn't long before I learned that flipping a motorized bicycle upside-down to fix a flat is not ideal.

I'm talking about the straps with the metal, spring-loaded, toggle-gripper-thing. The strap is about 8 feet long and lets me hoist the bike up enough to fix flats and such; as long as there is a suitable tree branch or something to toss the strap over. I've been motorized for about 8 years and used the strap for repairs 4 maybe 5 times.
