    What to bring along when on the trial?

    On my way back home without warring my bike died on me. The engine died due to a fouled spark plug. If I where farther away from home this could have been a shitty day. So other than a spark plug and a 13/16" wrench to remove the plug, what other tools, parts or other equipment do you bring along with you while ridding dirt bikes?

    Get there early, check the docket for your case number, bring all documents and pertinent paperwork, wear a suit and tie, pay attention to the Bailiff and address the judge as "your Honor" or "judge".

    hahaha, seriously, small tool roll including #2 phillips, straight slot driver, folding hex key set,6 or 8" channel locks, 4-5 basic open ended wrenches,partial roll of electrical tape and a mini roll of duct tape(backpack type with no cardboard core) and a patch kit with one of those mini co2 inflators and a pair of mini tire irons, spare spark plug(s) and socket set up for same and maybe even a couple of master chain links. Not so easy to stash on certain bikes but, can get you out of a jam.......... just sit there and stare at your bike and imagine some of the things you might need in a pinch, such as removing a fuel line at the filter or gas valve, removing a tire and chain, pulling a spark plug etc.

    I bring: spare front tube, aluminum irons that match my front and rear axle nuts, jet lighter,pump, safety wire. 6 and 8 mm bolt and nut, spare main fuse, electric tape and duct tape wrapped around irons, combo screwdriver, mini jet screwdriver, valve core remover, 8,10,12,17 wrench, 1/4 inch drive ratchet, 3 inch extension and 6,8,10,12 sockets, swivel, allen wrenches,knife, small vise grips, small wire to clean jets, spare,clutch brake lever, sometimes spare shifter, jb weld,beer can to patch cases and drink while changing flats. That all fits in a small fanny pack. Then camelbak with 100 oz of water or more, cell phone, tp, nuts, granola bar and a meat stick. Hat is great for keeping sun off during repairs. Thats my basic pac. For multi day i bring a med kit with a stapler, gauze, tape, quick stop for bleeding and a finger splint. I alway have a bottle with advil, benadril, imodium in my pack. Sounds like a lot but it really isnt much weight. Logged well over a thousand hours with that set up have never been stranded. Also repaired countless other bikes over the years. I run a gps on 100 mile plus rides and carry about 100 miles worth the fuel or more.

    Dont underestimate the value of a 1/4 roll of TP. When needed, priceless.

    On the quads I used to have a fanny pack with tire irons, patches and small tools. A few masterlinks are a must since you can fix a busted chain if you have a chain breaker too and they are usually small enough to fit in the pack. Flash light and batteries. I like baby wipes more than TP cause you can clean your hands and face as well as your butt if needed.

    To be prepared for every possibility, you'd need to haul a trailer behind with a full shop of tools and parts. Murphy's law will jump up and bite you no matter what you bring. Whatever you looked at in the garage before you left and told yourself "I won't be needing that" is exactly the part or tool you'll end up needing !

    Start small. Figure out what wrenches/screw drivers/hex keys/etc you'd need to tackle some of the likely items you'll possibly need to work on without needing spare parts. Small file and a spark plug gapper would be as good of a choice as a spark plug too if you've having issues with it fouling out. Master link for the chain is an awesome idea. HF has awesome small tool bags to help make all of this portable. I find if it's not convenient to carry, it doesn't get carried.
