Rear brake line and hugger question

So I'm removing my hugger because I think it looks way better without it, at least I'm going to try it and see if I get coated in grease or not. My question is, for those of you who removed it, what did you use to attach the rear brake line to the swing arm? I have some ideas but want to see what else is out there. Pics would be greatly appreciated if you have them.

I used some wdg style clamps. They worked perfectly, but i ended up reinstalling the hugger eventually.

Thanks, I plan on hitting up Home Depot or something to find something like that today.

and yeah I will probably end up re installing it, I tested it out and immediately noticed if the road is wet...shit gets everywhere.

Zip tie it until you decide if you like it without the hugger.

With zip ties, you could do 10 bikes for 60 cents. There's also duct tape, and the color would blend right in with the swing arm.

Look in the Lowes specialty hardware section, they usually are in one of those long flat drawers.

i had no intentions of putting my hugger back on, so I cut it around where it holds the line and left the tab for the bolt on... was free and works like a charm

I've got a fender eliminator with the hugger on. It's terrible when it rains, the back of my jacket and backpack is always soaked. I do like the full tire in the open look and chain access would be much easier for cleaning as well. Might be a summer mod for me and try it out.

Now what about running without a front fender...?
