Thank you! Oddly, I just bought one of those for my ageing mother...and it's got a plastic handle.
I guess I replace it tomorrow.

Is anyone carrying a fire extinguisher on their bike?
It's something that I have not considered but maybe I should.

I had two MSR bottles mounted on the side cases of an R1200R. While crossing back into the US at the White Pass portal the US border agent asked me why I was carrying two fire extinguishers. She became embarrassed and grumpy when I told her what they were.

I don't carry one on the bike but I used to carry one in the car.

And back in the days when I had extra fuel bottles attached to my rear panniers I was also asked why I carried two fire extinguishers.

Surprised this thread was moved to Off Topic when a few of us that are LD riders that do carry extinguishers especially when Kidde is one of the major manufactures...

Maybe less so for you as a burning bike is probably easy to get away from. However, that doesn't mean you might not come across a burning vehicle.

When I consider carrying a fire extinguisher I decided not to, the extra weight and space doesn't warrant the rare chance that I may need to use it.
On the other hand if I am on the trail in bfe and my bike goes up in flames I may wish I had one to save me the walk out.
