Thumbs up Things to carry while riding backroads... (add your own to the list)

After thousands and thousands of miles on the backroads, I've learned to carry a few items along the way "just in case". Now i'm not talking about M endorsement, insurance ect. (That should be with you anyway) but just a few items that could really save your .


1. Tire Plug kit- All it takes is one little nail or sharp object to puncture your tyre and now your miles from the nearest gas station that might have a repair kit.

2. Water Weld- If you've ever rode in back of someone on some backroads, more then likely you've had a busted radiator. If your going on a group ride (especially Fayetteville!) you better make sure at least someone has a tube of Water weld. You can almost bet on using it if your riding even remotely close to someone or behind them at a decent speed. Thanks MaxGs for always supplying lol

3. Zip-Ties- Good ol Zip-Ties or Tie-wraps. Excellent on holding parts up after the a small crash (footpegs, Kickstands, entire undertails ect.)

4. Plastic Bag- If it rains, and we've all been stuck in the rain a million miles from home, its only necessary to keep your phone, Ipod, or wallet dry. Throw it in a plastic baggy and keep your valuables dry.





Add to the list!

Bike(s):
Kawasaki EX250 (dead due to mechanical failure)
Kawasaki EX500 (on loan from a friend)
Pending, bikeless once the 500 gone :-(
Want Husky 510SMR or KTM 690 SMC to continue the hooligan activity






i bring my tailbag along, even though it doesn't look cool. I keep:

1. Minature air compressor
2. Mushroom tireplug kit
3. Cell phone
4. ex500 toolkit and pliers
5. Bugspray and microfiber rags... BELIEVE me I've been popular when riding cause I had the bug free visor and was able to share the joy.. ;-)
6. Themos with fresh loose leaf iced tea and water bottles.
7. Snack
8. I have some velcro and zip ties as well :-) good stuff
9. rain cover , waterproofs, sometimes rain gear if really bad
10. EZ tag
11. Ipod
... more, but need i prove that a tailbag rocks. I tried backpacks, but it just doesn't compare!


Point is, even though its not as cool looking as a backpack, etc. A tailbag is the trunk a bike needs and I find that my rides are MUCH more pleasant.

I have found myself in need of the tire kit so I now carry one.
and a Map in a plastic bag

Of lesser mention consider
A small flashlight, Even the key chain type might help you find the nail in your tire in the dark.

Also consider a small leatherman multitool, and a lighter.
I carry these on the cruiser but have never needed.

Stuck in the middle of nowhere you might be camping for the night.

I keep all the same stuff as you Hooligan with the addition of a few things.
-Small first aid kit
-Fuel Syphon hose kit
-multi tool
-tire irons
-Insurance card
-multigrain food bars and water bottle.
-road map
-flash light / lighter / glow stick (I ride trails also)

All this fits nicely in my Agio back pack. Hardly ever notice it's there.
