The speed limit on the post is 5 miles per hour. That's not a problem, but getting back by bed check is another story.

Preppers getting ready for future shopping expeditions including standard receptacle on rear of bike and extra large space allowance in trailer.

I'm actually surprised they don't have hungry boards on the trailer to boost capacity.

Major flaw is the reflectors are still on the bike wheels. Need to remove those for stealth mode.

Here is the "Cover My Ass" vehicle in full retreat mode.

In full attack mode, "Cover My Ass" has some bugs to be worked out.
