Unless you are planning on muddin you can probably get by with Tri-flow and rags. If you have any doubts with the brake pads install new before you take off. Don't forget the TP. Have a great trip.
Most likely no muddin for me (unless it's surprise muddin). Guess I don't need degreaser then, just how I'm used to cleaning. Got the TP, thanks for the advice!
You'll enjoy your ride more if you can reduce some weight. Here are some of my suggestions for things to leave home:
I didn't see a knit or fleece stocking hat - a must have when sleeping in the cold.
I took a regular pillow case, opened the hem up and ran a light line with a cord lock on it. I can stuff clothes in the pillow case for a pillow and the cord lock keeps everything from spilling out in the night.
I didn't see a camelback or hydration bladder - much easier to stay hydrated than stopping to drink from a bottle.
I no longer take TP, just take wet-wipes, that way you don't have to keep them dry. I also use the wet-wipes to pre-clean my cooking kit before actually washing it. That saves water when water is scarce.
Have fun. If you're in Central Oregon, shoot me a pm for riding ideas, a shop to work on the bike or sleep in for the night.
Guitar may be a bit much, but I think I'll be alone a lot so it may be worth it.. gotta think on it.
Maybe wet wipes are the way, I hear much about them in regard to camping.
Already bought 10 AA and AAA, maybe too much..
Hatchet may not need, but what about cutting up firewood?
Already had the rope lying around, paracord does seem better though, lighter and more compact.
Grunge brush is probably overkill, just used to cleaning my chain with it.. super quick and effective. Maybe I could cut the head off it and just keep that part.
Poop shovel is light and compact, may be useful for digging fire pit too. You can bury your poop with your foot? Power to ya
Got a large and small microfiber towel, one for body one for cleaning stove, utensils, moto? They fold up pretty small.
Don't need emergency food.. it's big and heavy. Was just thinking of the worst.
Never used the fire steel but it's cool and small. Gotta get Bic lighters though
Yeah, don't need the radio really
So just chain lube and degreaser? Tri-Flow may act as degreaser too and it's more compact.. definitely got too many chain products
Trioxane is small and compact, road flares sound cool too though
Sparkies I don't need yeah..
Guess I don't need a Leatherman and moto specific multitool and tool roll and oem tool kit... I just like tools
Gotta streamline them all
Matches, why not? Have em lying around. Can use my fire steel to light a pile of matches on top of trioxane and bic lighters, easy fire!
Definitely bringing a head lamp, got a small flashlight in case I lose it or something?
Don't need the bicycle tire patch kit, I just like things in small containers I guess. Plus the adhesive is highly flammable, I could add it to my fire starting collection!
Found the shoelace.. guess I should just get paracord
Foldout knife for cooking, it's small and compact. I've used my leatherman knife for cooking and food stuff gets all up in it, hard to clean.
Razor knife? I don't know.. maybe I need to perform surgery, guess I don't need 3 knives.. I even found a large fixed knife I wanted to bring.
Guess I don't need the extra levers since I got bark busters, just worried about being stranded. Lowsided on my old SV and broke shifter and clutch lever, now I'm worried
Looking into camelbak or platypus or whatever, they're just pricey. How do the tubes fit under a full face helmet?
Gotta bring a warm beanie or hat, good call.
Was planning on using a bundle of clothes as a pillow, but bringing a pillow case to stuff em in isn't a bad idea.
Appreciate the tips, will let ya know if/when I'm in Central Oregon, thanks!
