Is that a Wocket in Your Pocket?

Okay, I have been busy playing catch up with work. So its been awhile.  But Trobaritz threw down the gauntlet and I can try to figure out what I carry with me on most rides.  I have a couple of different jackets in which i ride so most everything goes into the tank bag.
 I guess its kind of a where's waldo mishmash of stuff.  So lets see what we have today.....
1. hat  2. Alieve 3. Gps and 12v adapter  4. cell phone (which if I am doing it right has no reception)  5.multiple lengths of rope  6.first aid kit  7. tire pressure gauge  8.pocket screwdriver  9.wire  10.2 granola bars  11. busted golf pencil 12. rescue inhaler  13.misc earplugs  14.Ipod 15.visor cleaner and anti fog 16.multipurpose towel  17.earbuds and case  18.sunglasses and case 19.loose change holder made from the last vestiges of a long lost habit  20. bottle of water....never know how hot it will be or how many bugs need to be removed. 21.wallet (but only if we are only stopping every 150-200 miles. 22. (not pictured) an occasional change of shoes.

Otherwise it is just these in the jacket... cause Lord knows those jackets are heavy enough.
 But then when I have the ability to have the 13liter tank bag, 39 liter top box, 35 and 45 liter panniers....the question becomes what don't I want to bring....?????
Hell..that's more storage than a mazda miata or them little smart cars.. and its way more fun...

Until next time....               Polarbear and Bud E.



  1. Great job Andy. Thanks for playing along. And I agree, the jackets are heavy enough already.

    PS: I love the new header picture.

  2. Great collection there, totally gives an extra heavy jacket :)
