Two part question... Theres a certain surf spot that requries a mile long bike ride along the beach in hard packed sand at lower tides and semi packed still manageable sand at high tides. But getting there first requires me to put my bike laying down in the trunk. I haven't tried any of this yet with all my parts put on but i could imagine that i would need to lean the bike over before putting it in my trunk to get all the fuel out of the carb so i dont get a mess. With the sand I'm on the fence. I was thinking about rigging something around the filter but in regards to the sprocket, chain, etc I dont know how much this sand would get in there considering its like cement at low tide.
