My Gear List and Gear Photos

first of all, i'm a bit of a list nerd. so don't judge me. secondly, i keep this list using iCloud on my mac devices (iPhone, iPad, iMac), so that when i make a change it is pushed/mirrored on all the devices. real handy way to let nothing slip through the cracks. or you could just wing it caveman style and be fine too. i started this list in december of 2011 by searching this and other forums, and reading books such as:

the adventure motorcycling handbook, by chris scott
building the ultimate adventure motorcycle, by robert wicks
adventure motorcycling, by robert wicks
the essential guide to dual sport motorcycling, by carl adams

the photos organized by storage area beneath this list were taken after my canadian trial run and gear test ride, as i was unpacking from that trip.

Note: (*) - indicates an efficient, innovative or otherwise amazing product that i'm glad i found
