Hey all!
Just thought I would post to see what everyone is carrying in their riding storage when out in the bush. Usually where I ride we are hours away from help. What are you carrying to make repairs or if you are in trouble?

Me: Small ratchet set, med kit, tow strap, mre's, water,flame

Just thought this might be fun topic. Looking forward to a long ride in the bush post holiday! Cheer all!

have extra bag locked to my front rack with tree saver strap, snatch block, 2 5/8" D Rings. decided to get all that when i found that winch alone won't always pull the beast out when it's buried in mud. add a snatch block and it will.

That is a great tip and definitely worth having in a bag. Especially, considering that it doesn't really take up a lot of space.

In the back of my machine I always have an extra 25' length of cable, small come along, couple bungee cords, saw, summer time always throw the rain gear in for just in case. Winter time I usually throw an extra jacket and gloves in. I've noticed if you need to keep your beverages from freezing while out riding keep them in the cargo spot in front of seat its actually quite warm in there. What I carry also has a a lot to do with what I'm planning on doing whether its hunting trapping fishing or just out joy riding.

I'm sure most of you guys do bring your cell phones, just forgot to post it..

Heck NO someone from work might be able to get a hold of me and tell me there is a problem and they need me to come back. Not bringing my cell phone saves me from having to look like a bad guy by telling them NO.:grin2:

Yes, I like these... Definitely going to add the spark plug to the mix. A lot you can do with a spark plug in a jam.

I am the same. If I am out for a while I have all general camping stuff with me...probably overkill most of the time but better safe than sorry.
