What do you carry in your trunk? What do you carry on a long trip? As I have looked through the threads I have found some interesting ideas on what people carry in their trunk.



I carry my Honda toolkit, an electronic tire gauge, and an emergency first aid kit in the trunk.



In the panniers I carry a spare coat on one side and a motorcycle cover in on the other side.

Well before I tore mine down for paint and maintenance, I had my tool kit, bike cover, tire plug kit, 12v compressor, sweatshirt, and a bible. You never know!!

All I carry in my trunk when I go on trips is my camera (and all the lenses, flash, etc...), a map, and maybe a couple of snacks.

In my trunk I carry the bike's ownership and proof of insurance(required by law) a can of Lemon Pledge and a couple of rags, a spare pair of gloves, a map book, face shield for my HJC A-3 helmet(in case of rain), Acer Aspire Netbook,small 1.5V solar panel(hooks up to my battery tender SAE connection terminal, to trickle charge my battery if I'm playing my radio/MP3 player a lot while stopped/picnicking), a hat and if it is during the shoulder season, my Tourmaster Synergy electronic jacket liner(in case it gets chilly) and a couple of spare bungee cords. In the cubby pockets, I carry a tire patching kit, tire pressure gauge, a fold-able nylon water 'bucket' and more spare bungee cords I carry my 'tool kit' and bottom half of my Frogg Toggs rain suit in 1 saddlebag and bike cover, 10' rubber air hose,along with the other half of the rain suit in the other. Opps ... I forgot to add that I also carry a 1st-Aid kit and a roll of TP in the one saddlebag as well

first aide kit, seat cover, hat, Clymer manual, intercom cords, helmet cover, and usually some one else's jacket/hat/vest (cruiser riders never have enough room). I want the trunk to be light, keep the weight low.

Right pannier gets the tool kit, rain gear, pledge and T-shirt, bungee net, heavy gloves, anything that I may need to get to on the side of the road. I don't want to be standing in the road digging through the panniers.

Left pannier gets change of clothes and personal items when traveling. Gets the groceries or what ever I buy when running errands. And yup, I'm lop sided when running it empty :)

Well, since you asked.
Multimeter
Honda tool kit, plus 3/8 ratchet set (HD's ya know :cheeky1:) and misc screws & nuts.
Battery jumpers, battery charger, tape, screwdrivers
Tire repair kit (plug, not patch)
Bike had a compressor, so had an extension hose
Gas filter, roll towels, big & little ones ;)
Alcohol plus 1st aid kit plus lots of sterile gauze
GPS if needed, bike cover, 10x10 tarp,
piece of plywood for the kick stand
Fuses, all kinds. others might need them.
Crimpers plus various kinds of connectors.
A couple of coils of low voltage wire. 16 ga & 12 gauge
Couple of spare headlamp bulbs, spare tail & side light bulbs.

Most of that will fit into medium sized fanny pack.
The bike cover takes up the whole trunk because it is a Beverly Bay 3 layer UV proof. Well worth it to me, it has kept me and the bike dry during a horrible deluge.

Thanks for the reminder on the hammer. I do carry a small 4 oz ball peen hammer.

That has been known to keep a nut on a stripped bolt more than once.
