I am not big on tank bags.

Commuting to work:
Right waist pocket extra scrunchy orange ear plugs and phone. Left pocket keys and gas receipts. Inner chest pocket wallet.

Travelling
The same as above along with a letterman and headband flashlight added to the side pockets. It is nice to have a flashlight handy when you make camp in the dark. It is also handy to not have to dig out the tool roll for simple things.

Man, you guys carry alot of stuff! I have my wallet and cell phone in either jacket pocket. That's it. Don't need anything else unless I'm heading up into the hills.

Many good items mentioned here which I carry in my jacket pocket or small camelpack depending on the trip.

Imagine a solo ride in the twisties and you find yourself in the ditch or maybe over a guard rail. If you are hurt and/or unable to make it to where your bike rested, what is in your pocket can make a big difference, especially when help is questionable. Some good things to consider on your person. Personally some items stay in my coat, and some are always in my MULE camel backpack which is obviously on me as well:

flat whistle
butane lighter
small LED light
cell phone
small hiking first aide kit
bandana
water
small chemlights
small flat folder knife/multitool
TP pack from an MRE
space blanket
wallet/ID/CC

Have not done it yet , but I always wanted to get a small red waterproof flash drive and hang it on my jacket.

Emergency info for med responders

Bike owners/parts/shop manuals

Password protected website link that would have copies of Drivers lic, veh ins card, veh reg card, passport, etc.

According to a couple of First Repsonders I know, the last thing they would do is plug a random flash drive into their computer . . . . .

Perhaps not the LAST thing, but, to quote one, "Really? You're kidding, right?"

They both suggested something that attaches to a jacket zipepr pull or a helmet that is paper based.

Just drivers license, bike registration, and enough cash to get through the day. Passport and credit card are usually in pants pockets. Phone is usually on the bars with the gps. Fox 40 whistle on paracord around my neck, I'm sure it will strangle me one day.
