I absolutely agree with you on this. My GF and i just got in a bit of a argument over the subject of being prepared. I told her if i need any additional snacks or water or another shirt or whatever i can get it on the road. She seems to think that i need to carry everything single thing on the bike with me. Anyway.... off to the store to get some stuff. Ill post back with what I can get. Thanks everybody for all the help. Beers on me!
