Mix up a big batch of this stuff called JB Weld. Then just scrape it into the radiator while the cap is off. That will slightly thicken the fluid and keep it from seeping out.

If it's really persistent, you can try 1/2 cup of Sacrete cement mix in the radiator. That will make it a bit thicker.

If you had any real skill, you would just hold a catch cup under the overflow tube when you hoist one, and then just pour it back in later.

The coolant is leaking out of the overflow bottle when you hoist it up past 40 degrees. Don't worry about it, get a longer overflow hose that goes under the motor, so you won't see it. In fact, place the outlet of the hose in front of the rear tire. Then you can do wheelie/burnouts while bouncing off parked cars. Then you can get some big wrap-around chrome bumpers like those Lusse Auto-Scooters at the Balboa Fun Zone...

I usually saute' leeks with a bit of bacon-fat, then add parsnips, a squizz of lime, and add it to some Mahatma Jasmine rice. Then, a thick, juicy steak grilled to perfection on that bed of rice. Served with an ice-cold St. Pauli girl or an Aussie Chardonney.................

Do a wheelie on a valkyre and I'll be impressed, but the oil would probably leak outta it upright
