4-drive on rags , big bandanas
5-leopard repellant OC 10 or Sig .357. save one for yourself
6-fancy fast dry underwear and socks
7-back up pair(s) of sunglasses-leave extras when you depart. Sunglasses=stature in Africa.

I tend to keep to a minimum gadgets which require batteries (except for cell phone and flashlight and headlamp) or charging. Anyway, I'm a Luddite and don't even have a digital camera or gps. Portable computer? Nope.

I do like beer, however.

Paperback books are easy to exchange, with other travelers, at used bookstores, even motels and libraries. Many grocery stores and pharmacies have books for sale, and I can always give away those I've read.

If I don't have something to read when camping, I write in my log book.

log book, notebook, notepad, construction paper,

have something you can write notes on, draw a map on, write down directions, some way to give people your contact info, do math for budget or gas mileage etc etc

Sure, Toilet Paper can be written on, but its not really durable. Duct tape could also substitue as something to write on, but paper is cheaper than duct tape

Don't forget something to write with, in fact take several, and several varieties. A big Sharpie is handy for writing on absolutely anything, a big carpenter pencil is pretty durable and easy to sharpen with almost any knife, regular pens are good except they're not going to work right away when you need them.

Hold it, this was for an Africa MC ride, not taking down bin laden with a follow-up celebration with Seal Team 6 in Singapore!

It all depends where you are traveling. I would never travel where I thought there was a likelihood that I was going to get stoned by the locals. I can't imagine getting into a situation where I am going to go "toe to toe" with the locals using a sling shot. Your best defense is your bike-to get you the hell out of there.

The gun carrying suggested by others is a joke I hope? All that will do is land you in jail in just about every foreign country there is as well as here in most of the States. The only defensive weapon I carry is bear spray and the authorities will even consider that a weapon if you are not in bear country camping.

The number one thing to have is a means to get money when you need it for beer, women, bribes, and other emergencies. These trips are suppose to be enjoyable adventures, right? I don't want to be constantly asking myself the rhetorical question, "Am I having fun yet?"

Sorry for the hijack.

not a joke.. I carry almost every time I ride. you obviously don't get out of suburbia much and no you won't end up in jail for carrying a gun if you go through the stupid hoops of most states.. Land of the free? anyone? this isn't britain. Africa varies, but I would figure out a way to sneak one.
out here you want to have a fleeting chance against the armed, drunk, strung out methheads in the woods. bear spray is good too.

I thought the slingshot was a joke
the monkeys and baboons are just going to be pissed off by a stupid slingshot. they outnumber you by like 100-1 usually. and they throw poop.

A childs slingshot is a joke. A "pro" slingshot and a bag of marbles is one hell of an accurate and deadly weapon.

"Athletes foot" cream. It can be hard to keep boots / socks dry so you are sure to get a dose of this (also useful for your butt crack..)
