Wing joining design for backpack transport?

Hi need your help please?

I own a Raven flying wing from it is a fantastic wing and had served me well over the years, my transport circustances have changed and now my only mode of transport is motorbikes!
So with that in mind I am looking for a way to break down and re join the wing so that I can transport her in a back pack to and from my flying field, she is a 32 inch span wing and I dont mind what ideas are put forward as long as they are practical and fall under the KISS method of doing things.

Many thanks rct

Build a new smaller wing.
If you insist on rebuilding your old wing, Cut it in half and glue a plate on each half. Put in precision holes and stick a few bolts along the seam.
