Plexus, cleaning cloth's, EXTRA glasses & sunglasses, gloves, comm wiring, writing utensil and small note pad, simple first aid items (bandaid's), vehicle reg and insurance certs. EZ pass and a sammich bag of quarters in case I need toll change where EZ pass is not accepted or if I wanna hose the bird sh*t off at a car wash.

If I am going into the big bad city I usually carry the sawed off shot gun, a SBR, and a variety of hand grenades. Just in case of a road rage incident. The knife is ALWAYS on my person but it doesn't make much sense bringing a knife to gun fight.

Bringing a knife to a gunfight is a good way to make the Darwin awards

SBR is Short Barreled Rifle. Fits better in the side bag. RPG's are too long.

A few people have mentioned they carry a bike cover in right or left bag. Any brand recommendations for one that would fit. I'm on a 1981 Gl 1100. The cover that came with the bike is fairly heavy duty.

I have layered gear, so no dedicated rain gear - besides, in our Texas heat, I'd much rather have the rain permeate my jacket and get a bit of cool-down.

Cover - check.
Helmet? We can't fit any of our [full-face/flip-up] helmets (though I guess a 1/2 would fit).

I also keep a bottle of StarTron Enzyme treatment, and use an ounce per fill-up.

Check. Hair brush? For me? Hardly For the g/f? Maybe, but she wears a hair glove.

Where the CB would be, I keep a portable air-compressor and tire-repair kit in that cubby-hole - fits perfect.

A "hot-cold" bag with 2-4 water bottles in it. Clear face-shield. Box of ear-plugs. Mid-size cotton towel (not bath-size). Two "cooling towels".

Hillshire Farms "re-usable" container (you know, like Turkey breast thin cut meat in the plastic container, re-purposed) ... that holds a 13,000 mAh charger and USB cable.

I also keep a spare key hidden. Also have an equalizer stowed away.

@ Flintlock. Thanks for the reply. I see those can pack down very small.
