    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.

    The largest gun I can fit in there. Usually a 9 or 45 with armor piercing rounds.

    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.

    2armor has a good point about having some important stuff in your pocket in case you're separated from your bike due to a crash.
    I wear and ID name tag and whistle around my neck.
    In the pockets of my Road Crafter suit that has 7 pockets, I carry a small Spyderco Dragonfly knife on a cord attached to an emergency ID holder, reading glasses, thin minimal wallet, a ziplock bag of enough cash for the day, cell phone.
    This year I've decided that I should start carrying my SPOT in my pocket and not on the bike.

    Leatherman, P-38 can opener, blue para-cord, and some envelopes and stamps in a water-tight plastic baggie that I placed in the pocket that holds the back-protector pad
