Past Tool Kit Threads
Lots of variables to what a person should take along
It would help if we knew where in the world you are riding (desert, mountains, swamps, forests) .
How far away is help from you where you want to ride?
How many miles do you plan on riding?
Do you ride with a buddy?
Paved roads, logging roads, single track, make your own path?
How much space are you willing to make for supplies? (Tool tubes. ammo box, milk crate)
When I go exploring within 50 miles from my house I take minimal supplies (two tool tubes stuffed with gear). When I take my 100+ mile jaunts into the cascades I bring tire irons and 2 tubes, tube patch kit, rope and tackle, small axe or chain saw, spot gps messenger,
Here are a couple of my normal rides that take me to some logging roads.
I take lots of gear for this one

I take just my tool tubes and spare gas for this one.

If I break something up a mountain road and need the wife to bring a trailer to get me, I can plan on a cold reception. So I bring lot's of extra stuff to fix things.
Did I ask too many questions?
