Carry the plate in the pocket of your coat...... drill a hole in it and tie a 4' string on it.... that way you can reel it in when you get back on!
I've used two: one a fancy little carbonfiber one from a fancy big motorcycle outfitting store (which I shall leave unnamed) and one a cheap thick plastic "Bigfoot" from a Honda shop...... the carbonfiber special cracked under the weight of my packed Wing, but the cheap plastic one just bends and warps..... every time I use it, I put the warped side up! Works like a charm!
