I always try to carry extra headlight bulbs on long trips.

I carry all that, except safety wire.

My tire repair kit has co2 bottles, to inflate after repair (saves on space)

I also carry spare headlight bulbs. Some of the roads can get pretty bumpy, and blow some bulbs.

I also carry a siphon pump and tubing, in case I need to get fuel on the fly.

And then of course always extra sets of gloves, proper sheilds etc.

I just installed my Sirius radio, and I like to have a thermometer on board too.

How about wipes? Like glass/shield cleaner....i can see the advantages of that. Maybe a pair of disposable rubber gloves so you dont get greasy in a repair job. and i would definitly carry a multipurpose tool as well as a 12' length of parachute/jump cord.

Not a long hauler but thats what i would take.

A cell phone and a Glock 17. The cell phone to call for help and the Glock to procure another vehicle if needed.
I choose glock because in the trunk of a vehicle or under the seat of a bike it is less prone to the elements as it is mostly plastic. Also it's 17 round capacity makes it a great choice for those EXTRA needed shots. As far as cell phone.... anything with a key pad and other than NEXTEL service. When your ass is on th eline have a camera phone doesnt mean jack!
