So now that it's nice outside and my 4th minion has been born, I'm trying to get out on the bike a lot more. While I carry a kit in my work bag I was curious if anyone has a motorcycle specific road kit.  I'm limited on space on the bike, but think a IFAK for road hazards would be good.

 

I may get an ITS kit soon, but would want to add a few other things such as burn creams or sunscreen and such. What are your ideas?

Basic IFAK and good riding gear is all I'd say.

If you're fucked up enough that an IFAK won't cover it, you're probably not in the self rescue realm

That's what I was thinking, but also thinking along the lines of "boo boo kit" for longer rides.- sunscreen/burn cream, stuff like that. And since space is limited, I wondered what folks carry.

I have the Maxpedition Micro Pocket Organizer as a boo boo kit in my center console which supplements my more complete First Aid bag in the back of my truck. The Micro is probably a little big for a handlebar bag, but would easily fit in a tank bag or saddle bag. It has tweezers, various ointments/creams (burn, allergy, antibiotic), couple doses of common meds (ibuprofen, benadryl, Dramamine, Imodium, etc), various bandages, eye wash and nitrile gloves.

What I lack in knowledge & skill, I make up for with sarcasm & bad jokes.

MightyP- that's more what I'm thinking. I have a small saddlebag, so if I don't carry my backpack with real IFAK in it, I want some things for the road- I.e. multitool, gas card, electrical tape, small wrench/allen key.  For first aid- bandaids, sunburn cream, aloe (case you touch pipes or something) bandaids, Tylenol, eye stuff-...what I'm thinking anyways. I haven't been a rider long but thinking of things for long rides when I don't have my bag that would be good to have.

I have a similar deal set up, but in a maxpedition micro wallet. I'd recommend it for the purpose, though the urban with it's closure would be even better. Contains one pair of gloves, tweezers, micropore, cleansing wipes, plasters (band-aids) and then one or two doses of each - Painkillers, Allergy meds, indigestion, aspirin etc.

 

EDIT - this would be in addition to a more serious first aid kit, to be more commonly rifled through.
