You should carry a 12mm wrench so you can fix the japanese bikes when parts fall off them.

I Ride: 02 650 StreetTracker, 92 K100 Special, 92 Triumph Cafe Racer.
Having snapped a few gear levers on stumps i always carry a spare.

Always a load of cable ties/zip ties too.

And a spare chain split link around the clutch hose and the wires from the light switch.

Hi all,
What's in my fannypack? offcourse the welknown zip ties, ironwire,rubberbands, allenkeyset, ducktape, sparkplug+wrench, multitool 10 mm till 22 mm, 2 chainlinks+breakertool, a cloth, the maybe? famous Husky wrench wich fit front and rearaxle nut, and last the trustworthy Leatherman multitool.
As for the bike, between the skidplate and engine i put old sponges in to keep mud away.
The original chainprotector is extended at the font with a piece of innertube to keep as much as possible sand and mud away from the sprockets.
Cables, i ziptie an extra along the one that are in action, like gas, or older bikes maybe front and rear.

Grtz Rens

p.s.while riding,look far enough ahead it can keep you out of trouble, and ofcourse you have the time to think of all the tips and tricks brought by Graham J,Malcolm S, Dick B,
Thanks from plumbbob and tourist

You can push start a 70degree engine with a bad battery by putting it in first gear, push the bike while simultaneously pressing the starter button.
