Things to bring to a Track Day

In honor of track days starting up again, here is my tentative inventory list for what to bring to a track day:

Crucial:
Track bike
Keys to the bike
Protection (Leathers, Gloves, Boots, Back Protector & Helmet)
License

Important:
Money
Gasoline container (filled with gas)
A lot of water or gatorade or whatever
Air pressure gauge
Tools
Duct tape!
Spare parts for bike (sprockets, levers, etc)
Spare helmet
Bike stands

Nice to have (but usually OK if you forget it):
Underarmor
Cooler and ice
Munchies
Chain Lube
EZ Up or some kinda canopy
Camping equipment if the track allows it
Lawn Chairs
Change of clothes
Sunglasses & hat if it's sunny
Generator
Tire Warmers
Some sorta game machine or laptop if you don't have much of an attention span
A friend to drive your ass home if you crash and can't do it yourself


Feel free to post up things you bring that I didn't mention.

I imagine that you include this under leathers but, gloves. I put mine in my helmet so I don't forget. Also, something waterproof to stand on while changing if you don't have the luxury of an enclosed trailer, wet socks suck.

Speaking of getting a room....did you book one yet roomy for Sat night or do you plan on driving home? I don't care either way. I plan to drive up Sat morning.

I'm hedging my bets on some floor space at a buddy's that lives in Rockford. If that falls through, I'm going to film the shower scenes for you and Ken (and Jim?)
