Just saying.
LOL

I think he's a firefighter (from a previous post, if my memory serves me right). On top of that, the evap canisters have been known to fall off the bikes, so in the interest of keeping our highways clean, it's probably best to remove it and place it on a garage shelf than dump it on the highway when it decides to come off.

I'd just leave them hanging, but you can plug them too if you wish. It won't make a difference other than give you added piece of mind that nothing will crawl up those hoses.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

LMAO! I never realized the irony in that....thats a good one! As Crossroads said, im a firefighter, Federal type...Army reserve too...so my living comes from being a "Fed".

Ya in the interest of safety i removed it....how bad would i feel if that thing fell off and hit somebody!!! Its now sitting on my shelf as of a few hours ago. I tucked the hoses underneath, cant even see them now and much cleaner look.
