So...by request of @Tozguy , the (almost) complete inventory of everything I carry.

This pile of stuff is comical and after getting it all spread out I was having hard time to figure out how to appraoch it. I've deided on lettering the pictures and describing the items with a sprinkle of justification. At the end I will explain how I organize it all.

A.

B.
Wood Fashion accessory Recreation Automotive design Collection


C.

D.
Saw Pneumatic tool Handheld power drill Chainsaw Tool

0. 5.56 Ball ammo can to hold tire repair and spare parts.
1. Spare belt
2. 4x Large heavy duty zip ties
3. Bag of medium (7 inch?) zip ties
4. Air compressor

6. Beats+ Bluetooth speaker (also another backup device charger)
7. Rigid Shop Light with 3Ah battery

12. Flashlight (single AA battery)
13. 4x AA batteries
14. Garmin eTrex HCX GPS
15. Spare M12 bolts (for shocks, control arms, and other stuff...only because I have them and why leave them at home)
16. Spare M12 nuts (same as 15..)
17. Electrical tap (88 tape...not your average electrical tape)
18. 10x Body clips
19. Tire plug tool
20. Tire plug boring tool
21. Tire plugs
22. Flagging tap (used for marking hazards on the trail)
23. TP (because leaves are so 2021...)
24. Garbage bags (because people don't understand that garbage doesn't belong in the woods)

B. Mostly tools plus clothing and some survival (starting at the ammo can)

0. 5.56 Ball ammo can to hold all of the tools.
1. 100% water and wind proof rain paints
2. 800 fill down jacket
3. 100% water and wind proof rain jacket
4. First aid kit (augmented with extra band-aids and stuff)

3. 3/8 drive sockets (short and long + torx and hex sockets)
4. 1/4 drive sockets
5. 2L water
6.Various wrenches, pliers, adjustable wrenches, vice grips and screwdrivers. Notable items: belt removal tool, torx bit for removing the torx bolt for wheel well, telescopic magnet for getting that nut that always falls where you don't want it to, body clip removal tool, small flat head screwdriver for adjust chainsaw carb, blue staedler pen for marking if something needs to be lined up if it's removed

These items are part of my survival kit; this is a single ammo can that I can pull out and carry with me in case I need to leave my bike in an emergency situation)
7. Emergency rain poncho
8. Emergency solar blanket
9. 4x Hand warmers
10. Paper trail map (of the area I ride most)
11. Pocket knife
12. Fold-up pliers
13. Flashlight

16. Fox 40 whistle attached to a Sunto Compass
17. Ziploc bag of dryer lint (better seen in C)

1. Jetboil (filled with coffee pouches, tobasco sauce, and outmeal pouches)
2. Fuel cell for the jetboil
3. Magnesium block (the every other fire starter is wet final solution -- this works, but defintely practice first because it isn't easy...)
4. 3x light sticks
5. 2x military ration trail mix
6. 2x military rations (1x chicken poutine (YUMMY!) and 1x spaghetti and meatballs)
7. Voyager 50 sleeping bag (rated comfortable to 4C...I would be comfortable using it in an emergency down to -20 with the solar blanket and winter clothing)
8. International Emergency Symbols card (has useful symbols and signals information, plus acts as a reflector for signalling air assets)
9. Card credit sized magnifying glass (theoretically can be used as a fire starter. I have never tried this...I stash it because it takes zero space and weighs like 3 grams)
10. Advil
11. 2x military ration tortillas ( the "bread" in Canadian mil rations really helps gum up your butthole, so if you got the diarrhea this will do the trick!)
12. Mil issue air mattress
13. Ascend 2 person tent (with ground sheet + fly)
14. Mecanix gloves (i use these when riding)
15. Dry bag (holds the tent and likely going to hold the spare belt)

D. Trail clearing + Extreme unstuck me.
1. Chainsaw...obviously
2. Spare bar oil
3. 3-in-1 Chainsaw sharpener (this thing is excellent...highly recommend)
4. Spare chain
5. Fiskar hatchet (for when I'm too lazy to pull the chainsaw out)
6. Chain saw tool
7. File (for filing the mushrooming on the bar)
8. Fiskars hand saw (for when I'm too lazy to pull the hatchet out of the back box)

E. Unstuck me / recovery gear
1. Very cheap, very under-rated working load limit tow rope (Upgrading this soon with something safe...)
2. Storage bag (doubles as a winch line dampener) (actually from a bosch cordless drill)
3. 50' aircraft cable extension line
4. Very unsafe tree strap (2 legit tree straps are on the way to replace this, i will continue to keep it in my kit for trivial things with no risk to kill someone if it fails)
5. Spare winch hook (because you never know...)
6. 8T snatch block (4T working load limit ) (I just got this; I haven't used it it)
7. Cable lock (for securing front wheel of bike when i leave it plus optionally the chainsaw)
8. Kryptonite bicycle lock (for securing rear wheel when i leave it)
9. Trailer tongue lock for locking the front box
10. 10T snatch block (8T working load limit) (also brand new and I haven't used it)

What is not in these pictures because I either just ordered or forgot...
1. 100' synthentic rope winch extension line (7500lb breaking strength) <(=== arrived while I was writing this!
2. 2x 3/4" D-ring shackles 28T breaking strength
3. 2x 3" 8' tree savers
4. 2x Soft shackle 18T breaking strength
5. 2T bottle jack
6. 15L fuel (or 10L of fuel + 5L of fuel for chainsaw)

As for packing all this up...everything fits in 3 ammo cans except for the obvious larger stuff. I do keep the most used items loose either in the front or rear box, such as the TP, a flash light, the bluetooth speaker, spare batteries and the hand saw.

I also ride with a GoPro mounted on my helmet and I have a Sena 50R coming soon!

Yes...if you made it this far you are completely allowed to make fun of me... :LOL::LOL::LOL:

I still got room for an 18 pack! However; I'm going to scale that back to a 6 pack because who needs this... (although it is fun to laugh about on the trail)

That's a fantastic list. Thanks

I'd recommend a Garmin inReach two way satellite communicator. The unit is literally a lifesaver. A guy went over his handlebars and broke both femurs. Due to his inReach he was flown out in under an hour. Without it he would have bled out before help arrived. Cheap insurance.

I got my pocket lighter; a hermetically sealed backup lighter, waterproof matches, magenesium blocks and my jet boil…

for fire starter I got some dryer lint and my hatchet to dig inside wet wood if it’s wet out. 👍

I’m going to check this out. Thanks!

I got my Sena 50R the other day that has voice activated dialing as long as I have cell service. I also recently was gifted a Apple Watch that has lte and gps. I’m excited to see how I can use this for riding.

Here are pictures of it all packed up. I do need to sort out my recovery gear because I just bought a lot of stuff I didn’t have, so I need to reorganize to find room for the tree savers.

I took a video to get from the original pictures to here; it will follow shortly.
