Weatherhandler Auto Safety kit including:

· Booster cables (changed to small clips)

· Safety triangle

· Assorted wire ties

· Roll of electrical tape

· emergency rain poncho

· Emergency space blanket

· Two reflective vests

6 in lg by 2 in wide velcro strap that can be used to lock the front brake lever & to hold things to rack

Assorted bungee cords

Bike cover

Rain gear

2 used spark plugs

Stop & Go Pocket Tire Plugger kit*

Air hose*

2 flashlights

Adventure Medical Ultralight .5 Kit from L.L.Bean, item # CX263696 (first aid)

Tie pressure gauge and valve core removal tool

Pocket notebook and pencil

Soft tie loops and ratchet straps

*Stop & Go makes several kits with hand tools, pistol grip tools, CO2 cartridges or a compressor. My GL1500 has air on board so I carry the hose and bought the pocket kit. I like this kit as it uses rubber mushroom plugs. My experience with the rope plugs has always been negative. I used this mushroom plug once in a car tire and it help up great. Hope to never use it again but if needed, I feel good about it.

As far as the cell phone, yes I have one but don't trust my life to it. I also have Ham radio and CB. I do not consider any of these to be a safety tool.

You forgot your shop rags.
I was wondering, Where do you put your clothes.

Let's see, the manual, factory tools, plugs, air hose and tire plugger kit are under the floor mat on the right. Dead space anywayand minimal weight impact. The first aid kit and vests are on the shelf above the righttailight, the cover and rain gear are under the bungee net in the right lid and the bungee cords are behind the divider on top of the left tailight. So again, minimal weight and no space impact. The auto kit is in a nice bag, two inches thick and it also holds the ratchet straps. The added tools all fit in the Craftsman zipper pouch which is also only two inches thick. These two pouches take about half the bottom of the right bag.



So, I use about two inches from part of the bottom of the right bag and it weighs less thanten pounds,

What! No duct tape? Are you crazy? You might as well drive around naked!

Duct tape is an absolute necessity and I would never fly a plane without it, either. In both cases you never know when an emergency will crop up requiring duct tape, like a talkative passenger. And unlike with a plane, you can't climb a Wing high enough to where the thin air quiets them down.

:D

Kind of reminds me of my old truck camper. If I couldn't find it in the house it was sure to be in the camper. Nice feeling to know you've got all the stuff you might ever need.:thumbsup:

Sounds like a nice tool kit and well packed.

Now where do you put the spare wheel bearings, fuel pump, and alternator? LOL

And all this time I thought you rode a Goldwing, I didn't know it was one of those other types LOL

Just ribbing you, good to be prepared. I really need to go over my tool kit and add somethings myself.

And I agree with others, get some Duct Tape in there! Never know when it may be needed or for what.
My side covers were coming loose at good speeds last year so I put a piece of Duct Tape on front and rear, better than losing them. Then I got keeper kit from Rudy. Don't have to worry about losing them now, but they still try to come loose.
And I had a bad side bag latch on the front, would not hold shut, worried it would pop open and loose my laptop etc.. so a small section of tape fixed that as well.

Duct tape starts to come apart at 400 kts on the leading edges of (airplane)wings.
