Pack Wisley

Motorcycle Packing for a Short Trip and a Longer Trip

Small Gadgets

In my left glove box, I have a small pack with a good pocket knife, a folding multi-tool pliers, a couple spoons and forks, a camping can opener, a weekly pill container, a cigarette lighter and a small metal flashlight. Big 5 sporting goods sells most of this stuff at really good prices if you watch for a sale. The weekly pill container holds aspirin, acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Advil), antihistamine (Allegra), cold tablets (Aleve / Sudafed), caffeine, and melatonin. Long's drugs gives away the pill containers for free. A small camera bag holds a digital camera and spare batteries and flash ram. A small portable tripod. A zip-lock baggy holds 10 pair of spare earplugs. Ask around, everyone who rides long distances wears foam earplugs. Reading glasses (I'm not young anymore, I can't read a map without them). Sun block. A few hair bands wrapped around the sun block tube.
