wire is always good. Not too thick, maybe 2-3 feet of the stuff you would use to wrap around your grips.

Duct tape. Take it and just start wrapping it around a small wire so that you don't have to take a whole roll. Should not need that much either.

A good Leatherman will replace a lot of the things on your list above and will also give you a knife which is also important.

Don't forget about the first aid kit with plenty of pain killers.

Hey buttwipe, what's the rope for? :) Do you need it so the WR's can pull that tank up the hills? :D
Damn, you need a truck to haul that toolbox around. A truck would probably be lighter than your bike too. :D

When I go on long distant rides I always bring a tow rope. They weigh nothing and can really help out if you have a disabled bike.. Cell phone, motorola walkies,GPS,leatherman,space blanket (I've spent the night out three times before :) ), powerbars, matches,lighter,money,wire,tools, tubes (on the bike). ETC....

It is kind of nice not having to need a tow rope when riding my BRP. I guess it is just one of those things that you have to wory about when riding blue.

So Mike, how you going to light the cigar?

The Israeli made 50 cal Hand Cannon is for banditos while Baja riding (they pay top dollar!)

The Nekkid pic's of Lorax's mom are actually stickers, they are for handing out to the Mexican kids who come up asking for 'steekr', 'steekr' .....

The hand lotion is just a moisturizer (i have sensitive skin) !!!!....

The cigar is either a Victory cigar, enjoyed after diner in the bar at Mikes Sky Ranch, OR its a Rescue cigar
--easy to light it by dipping one end into the fuel tank for a second, then unscrewing the spark plug, and kicking the bike over while electrocuting the dipped tobacco. Next: Drag over some dead cactus, sage brush-start a fire, and smoke the thing--Its gonna be a long night!

The towrope is for other bikes there smartass, but when I tow BRPs the rope usually snaps... :)

All in good fun. :D
