    What's in your tailbag/tankbag?

    I keep thinking that I should use a tankbag or tailbag more often just in case. What are your must have items that you carry with you? Zip ties, ibuprofen, Benadryl, cocaine? Battery backup to charge your Sena?

    Rain suit, cell phone and extra gloves in case mine get wet. Tank bags are great. However over time they may create scratch’s on the tank.

    I prefer tail bags over tank bags, but either is quite handy. Contents of my tail bag include; tire repair kit, compact air compressor, tire pressure gauge, zip ties, small can of spray polish and a cloth for visor cleaning, clear shield, knife, electrical tape, bottle of water, spare ear plugs, Aleve, a couple of small tools, Powerlet adaptors and a rain cover for the bag.

    2013 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 ABS......Sargent seat, Puig windscreen, R&G frame sliders / fork protectors / engine case covers, Powerlet, Osram Nightbreakers, Vesrah brake pads, Pazzo levers, Akrapovic full exhaust, Power commander 5, pair valve block off plates, modified air box, Ivan's ECU reflash, suspension built by Traxxion Dynamics.

    I use a small tank bag. I can't do a tail bag because then I can't get my foot over it to get on. Permanent in the tank bag: Ibuprofen, zip ties, multi-tool, allen wrenches, maps, earplugs. Still plenty of room for ride specific items: wallet, phone, hat, water.

    I keep a tire repair kit, small compressor, wipes for the visor, a shower for when I get hot, my ex-girlfriend from high school because she is hot, a fallafel in case I get hungry, and a tire pressure gauge.

    I have a tail and tank bag. I seem to prefer the tail.

    Currently: Multitool, Ear plugs, rain x whipes, Micro fiber, clear visor, tactical towel, swimming trunks, cat tourniquet, zip ties and duct tape. Depending on weather a thermal undershirt.

    I have neither a tank nor a tail bag. I always carry a backpack so I can do the grocery shopping for our house. However, if I'm heading out on a ride, I always make sure I have my spectacles, my cellular device, some form of payment for fuel, and approximately 200 milliliters of 100 proof Smirnoff.
