I was thinking some packets from a wing place.... but yeah, that'd be better.

The gloves also work if it gets REALLY cold out, from what I've been told. Others say your hands sweat too much if you are riding a long ways.

At the moment, only the supplied tool kit under the rear seat.

Ideally, I would LIKE to carry a pressure gauge, small compressor with a quick connect attachment, mushroom plug kit, JB Waterweld, zipties, and some water.

I want to use a backpack to carry all that, so until I find one that I like and can comfortably ride with, I'm almost SOL if something happens....

What about a tow rope would that be worth having. Should carry a flashlight as well

Yeah forgot about that stuff.
Dunno about a tow rope but I keep a small set of jumper cables a first aid kit, a flashlight, and heat resistant gloves in my back pack always along with a multitool.

And of course a gremlin bell.

On my Ducatis I always carried a 1/4" ratchet and enough sockets and adapters to adjust my chain and remove a spark plug, plus a couple extensions and some common allen head "sockets" so I could remove bodywork, valve covers, the clutch cover or adjust handlebar controls. For longer trips, I would carry a leatherman, small wire cutters with some male/female snap in connectors and a short (<24") length of both electrical & duct tape wrapped around a pencil. Oh, and a small Maglite.
On my two strokes I carry enough tools to remove spark plugs and engine covers. I rarely go far enough on a two-stroke to need anything more than a cell phone to call for help.
