Condoms (non-lubricated) are also good for carrying/storing water in a survival situation.

All I need is duct tape and a swiss army knife. That's right.

Thats about it. Kinda hard to pack a ton of stuff on a sportbike

However, in my car, I keep a full set of tools, jack, jackstands, gloves, bandaids, firearms, napkins, medicine, first aid kit, clothes, etc. Used to keep a sleeping bag in there too, but let a friend use it and havent seen it since.

I Ride: When I can
Cell phone and a fully charged battery.
Keep this 'on your person' and, not in a tank bag.
(What happens if you get seperated from your bike and bag)??

1st Aid Training (get it BEFORE you or a friend needs it)
When you get the training you will know what supplies you will want to carry on your bike.

Medic Alert Card with info on Alergies, Meds. you use and Dr.s name and contact info
Same for the person(s) you want contacted.
"Med Star Air 'Flight insurance'.
I can't stress how cheap this stuff is. $60.00 a year for everyone on your income tax return.
VS, $30K plus for one Helo ride. You may need more than one ride"!!(covers 'fix'd wing' and ground ambulance transport, too).

Names and numbers of friends with a truck/trailer that can come pick-up you and/your poor broke down bike.

Many of us have been caught without the necessary 'tools of the road' and it leads to a tale of woes, and many of us have had something go wrong and we just jump off the bike, pull out the right tools and were back on our way in a snap.

But what is considered necessary, and what is considered over-kill when it comes to what we carry.

Some of the stuff I generally carry all the time:
Patch kit
Basic tools (came with the bike)
Simple pack of bandaids
Aspirin, Tylenol, Tums, maalox pills and Benadryl
Flashlight
Tire gauge
Half roll of TP


Now the question is out there. The only reason I started carrying this stuff is out of experience, but when is it considered going too far, or not far enough?
All the time I have what you listed including a 1st mini aid kit mini air compressor and survival knife/w compass all the crap in the handle, Bungies, nitro glycerin, prednizone, extra gloves, a mylar blanket and a 45/410 snake slayer. (I have a fair amount of room under my seat Plus if I'm driving any distance I have my tank bag (Food and water + a 2 meter ham radio)

Too much is when it effects your driving.

Like you said, get stuck a couple times in the middle of nowhere

Had that very thing happen to me riding early last spring!
Sucker was so big it obscured the lense in my right eyeglass.
Been riding quickly all morning. 5 miles from the rally BAM!
I had raised my shield for just a moment.
Glad I had eyeglasses on under the full coverage helmet.

We're getting off topic here. I will let you in on a secret I only shared with my riding buddies and the Harley newsgroup: you need a credit card, pint of Black Velvet, and a cell phone. You call the tow company, drink the BV while you're waiting, and pay for it with your credit card. Simple.

Yes you're right, when a bike breaks down it makes for a bad day, so I guess making it worse by drinking really bad booze would hardly be noticed. Not to mention the cop that stops to help before your tow arrives, smells the alcohol on you and provides a free ride back to his jail.

=WIN

Sorry dude, MOST of the places I ride there is NO cell service!

If I rode a Harley I'd probably need a credit card and a bottle of cheap booze too.

I Ride: 82 Suzuki GS750
I put on my saddlebags everytime I ride out of town, In them I keep:
Tools
First Aid
Bottle of water
Flash Light
Duct Tape
small pack of Tissues (can be used for sneezing or TP)
Quart of oil

And in my jacket, I keep my:
Cellphone
Pain Killers
Emergency $20 bill in a hidden pocket
Something to much on.

And I keep GPS on my phone turned on. If I go down and my phone survives, my wife can see where I am and send for help.


My car on the other hand has enough tools to rebuild an engine on the side of the road. I drive an SUV that never has room for more than 2 people to sit due to everything I bring with me.

that has got to destroy the gas mileage on your SUV with all that extra weight all the time...

so far all ive been carrying is different clothes in case it starts raining unexpectedly, Cell phone, credit cards, AAA membership, owners manual, horrible tool kit that came with the bike (just an allen wrench for the fairing)

i should probably take the advice from this forum though and carry at least a first aid kit and training though...
