have only had one break and it was close to home. fortunately.i do, however, end up on some lonely (sometimes gravel) roads. and according to "Murphy 101" the belt would pick up a stone and break when on one of these roads way up nowhere with no cell service. i am guessing you guys would try to install a emergency belt when and where it breaks other than leaving your fully loaded ride on the side of the road while you hiked the several miles to phone service. "if" a belt was available. and if i had one and came across you with a broken belt on the road i would "lend" it to you as well. ;0)ya pays your money and you take your chances....
It's a good idea to stay off of gravel roads. When you ride in such areas, there is a likelihood of picking up a stone. Kept on the paved roads, a belt and pulleys will do 100K miles easily.

Again, can you imagine he outcry if ANY automaker released a top of the line vehicle and said "By the way, you mustn't drive on anything but a paved road or you may suffer a catastrophic failure!" Last year, my road was redone. Sprayed on hot tar and spread tiny gravel. Its still covered with loose stone. So I shouldn't be able to ride to and from HOME? A Harley own HAS to live on a paved road? What nonsense! Either properly shield the belt, or make it easily serviceable.
