I am a firm believer that everyone needs to be self sufficient. Going into the desert is like going out in the mountains snowmobiling. Lots of exposure. Its very easy to get separated from the group and every person should have at least the following:
First aid, GPS, Map, compass, food and water for 2 days, tools to fix your bike and spares.
I carry these on every ride whether its on a snowmobile or a moto. Anything less can get you in trouble fast.
You never know when you will need to spend the night somewhere and relying on other people is just something I won't do.
