So I thought I'd show the equipment/tools/gear that is always in my saddle bags on my DS bike,and will be with me on the TAT. I've always been interested in knowing just what people like to carry,so I will try to document it with pictures that show things in more detail,and will make mention of some things that may not be obvious. Hope this helps.
I'm pretty sure I'm going to try the mousse tire tube inserts instead of tubes,if that's the case I'll drop the electric (which works great) pump and carry a small hand pump. I'll then only carry one spare tube-not two if I do the Mousse. Probable leave one of the two patch kits at home also.
As a Firefight I feel comfortable knowing what to take in my first aid kit. Just basic stuff I use every day in the streets. Anything more than lacerations and gross bleeding-your screwed. lol
This bag carries a lot of incidentals
Some of the items:test light,soldering torch,film negative to clean out weeping/leaking fork,SPARE head lamp,floding scissors & tape for roll charts,fire starter,sleeping pad repair kit,water purf. tabs
That silver item in the middle is a "stand" to keep the bike up incase of a flat,and the tow strap is on the far right
Majority of tools
that is 2 diff. stainless steel wires on dowels,and some solder material above
These are the items in that white pouch on the lft. side of the tool bag. The top lft-grease in an old film canister,some radiator lead stuff,spare radiator hose, blue 3/8 adapter that works with tire iron,that duct tape bag contains an assortment of scrws.etc.
