I carry these on every ride whether its on a snowmobile or a moto. Anything less can get you in trouble fast.
You never know when you will need to spend the night somewhere and relying on other people is just something I won't do.
Have you been to Morocco? If you fell off your bike in the middle of nowhere, in about 12 seconds you would be surrounded by people who have appeared from who knows where! Give them a few Dihrams and they would provide you with a Gin and Tonic if you required one. I dont use a GPS there either.
