Packing List

Everything, and I mean everything that I carry along with while traveling on my motorcycle. While there might be a few things I carry temporarily (extra food, gas, or water), this is what I make sure I have on the bike when I hit the road.

    • Clothes – (In total, this includes the things I’m wearing when I leave)
      • Three pair synthetic underwear (the wicking kind)
      • Four pairs of socks (smart or merino wool)
      • One heavy pair of socks
      • Three short sleeve t-shirts (Mix of cotton or synth, I’m not picky)
      • One long sleeve t-shirt
      • One pair of cotton pants
      • One pair of light shoes (Vibram 5 toes, with one pair of toed socks)
    • Toiletries (everything full or normal sized – travel sizes are rip offs)
  • Riding Gear
    • Armored and Waterproof jacket (not a waterproof liner, I want to be waterproof all the time)
    • Mesh armored pants (I prefer mesh for when it’s hot, since the jacket never vents enough)
    • Three pairs of gloves
      • One for when it’s very hot – usually padded bicycle gloves (and I know they aren’t protective)
      • One for when it’s very cold (Held Icebreakers)
      • One for everything else (Currently a first gear set, but I go through these often)
    • Hiking boots (since I like hiking and want something I can walk in)
    • Modular helmet (Shoei Neotec)
    • Sena 10 Bluetooth (usually for audio only)
  • Camping Gear
  • Cooking Supplies
  • Tools and Spares
    • Shop manual for the motorcycle (a real, physical copy you can leave places)
    • Tire repair kit (I have tube tires, but carrying tubes is always a good idea in case you can’t plug a hole)
    • Tools needed for standard motorcycle maintenance (your’s will vary, but pack what you actually use)
      • 10mm wrench x 2
      • 12mm wrench
      • 14mm wrench
      • Adjustable wrench
      • Spark plug socket
      • 5mm Allen wrench
      • 6mm Allen Wrench
      • Feeler gauges
      • Pliers
  • Electronics
    • iPhone 5c (at the time I write this, anyway) with Lifeproof case
      • (Just as an aside, the iPhone serves as my camera, GPS, and entertainment when needed, it’s usually the only thing I’m carrying when traveling “just for me.” Since I have been giving more presentations, my equipment list has expanded.
    • IPad Mini in Zagg Rugged case (I have a life proof case for this as well, but wanted the physical keyboard provided by the Zagg)
    • Cables for recharging
    • Connectors for VGA and HDMI
    • GoalZero Nomad 7 and Guide 10 solar system (I rarely use it anymore, but it’s nice to be able to recharge the iPhone with the Guide 10 and not have to plug back into the motorcycle)
