Emergency firstaid for motorcyclist

If you are like myself and are often out on the trails far removed from a hospital or conventional medicine there are a few things that you can carry that can dramatically aid your return to civilization or ease your suffering until help arrives. Everything I will utilize can be sourced from your local pharmacy or ordered off the internet. This would be primarily geared towards fractures/burns/abrasions/puncture wounds all of which can occur in a rough trip down a trail.

My background: Medical student (DOD Medical school), Paramedic (military), I have taken numerous adv. trauma courses, and am providing the knowledge currently employed by the US military.

Enclosed is a picture of the kit that I carry with myself regardless of what type of riding I am doing. If I am going out with my panniers I may carry more but this is designed for the trails.



A. Carrying case, I am using a military style cordura case
B. Compressed Gauze
C. Ace Bandage (5-6)
D. Medical Tape
E. Sam Splint
F. Emergency Thermal Blanket
G. LED Strobe Light, this is a great light to have, it is almost as strong as police strobes
H. Epi Pen, I am allergic to bees, thanks to a scorpion sting
I. Gerber Multi Tool
J. Medications, I carry acetaminophen, ibuprofen, meloxicam, and have two crushable iodine swipes in there
K. NATO Tourniquet
L. 2x2 Gauze
M. Band Aids
N. Alcohol Pads
O. Head Lamp
