I Ride: - as often as possible
All the practical stuff I see here with the exception of examination gloves. Instead I carry Mechanix gloves which come in handy for tire pressure checks, and chain adjusts. And if I have a breakdown they'll last through the repair and keep going long after.

As for having room on a sportbike, I have plenty since I added a luggage setup on the rear which allows me to do overnight trips with camping gear. A midsize tank bag works for all the daytime stuff and I can pull it and bring it into a reaturant so I have easy access to my cell, sunscreen and otherwise when I want them.

I haven't had a dreadful experience since I started packing smarter. Instead I wind up with "this is how we got out of it" stories using the gear I have and a little ingenuity. I remeber the time I paid $200 for a tow back in 2002. Never again. A real pump (not bicycle) and decent tire repair kits saves me money everytime I get a flat.

I Ride: 1998 harley sportster custom
carry most everything I need ,but when I was young and dumb I didnt carry
anything cause the 650 Yamaha never let me down.
Untill I was on a trip to montana from TX. The chain had gotten so loose
it wouldnt stay on the bike. I borrowed a cresent wrench but it was so worn
out , it was at the last of the adj.
So I took my Buck knife and a rock and cut 2 links off the chain, worked great, but dented the knife.
Now I bring a few more things .

It depends where you are riding. At the minimum supplement your tool kit for anything that could go wrong that you can fix without parts, spare headlight bulb, spark plugs, spare cell battery, map(s), and mylar sheet.
Whatever keeps you on the road or in communication, or worst case scenario warm and knowing where you are.

From: here going there.

I Ride: because I can.
Some of what has been mentioned, I prefer my .45. But sometimes I'll take the .380 - it's S/S and does better on the road - plus a cleaning kit. I always take a water filter. Don't always use it, but won't go anywhere without one. Full roll of ass wipe, US army poncho, camp soap, baby shampoo. I like the baby shampoo because I can wash out my eyes with the stuff - all that grit. Works good. My laptop.

After thought - I run Rhino tires so I am not terribly concerned with picking up a nail and such, I am a member of AAA and pay the extra for MC towing when I am on the road. A good set of luggage, this is very handy packing and unpacking the bike. For moi, it's a gotta. We usually guzzle a bottle of water every time I gas up, but carry one (water filter) anyway.
