Why would I know that. But I can only assume it will be the one with training wheels and the trailer for hauling all of your shit on the graded forestry roads.

Ok, I don't have any experience, but I'd say stay away from the leather chaps and matching nipple clips. I can imagine the chaps wouldn't provide much protection in a tightly packed night club and the nipple clips might tear when the boys are parading you around like a pony wearing back packs full of survival gear.

what I really carry,(depends on the ride) the list below is for the Atacama desert in Aregentina next month

multitool
headlamp (important)
Basic tools
Hand pump
fire starter (important)
a good knife

Duct tape (50% of your first aid needs)
Vicodin or stronger (the other 50%)
zip ties
wire
tire repair
paracord

Sat phone
You field strip the MRE and you eliminate all the bulk and fluff

Bedford Road coming off Main Divide Sunday evening. Its 4 miles from the junction to Bedford gate at the bottom. Not yet sure what the elevation change is. The gps on camera finally worked.

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1h...in-divide_auto

Just received a new book Build the perfect Survival Kit By John D. McCann.

Haven't read it yet just browsing through it seems to have some really good points and ideas.

Tried my ogio vest on this ride. Seemed fine had it over my bionic armor and jersey no discomfort so far. I had 32 oz of water my ham radio and ham radio repeater directory. Lots of room in this vest.

My 911 tactical vest was to small so sending it back for the larger size. Its gonna cost me double what the ogio vest cost but that's okay If it doesn't work out I have other uses for it.

Go the Dakar way:

Extra gasoline and a box of matches

YES, we were hungry and cold and bleeding and broken

Two really good websites:

For the basics, Paul Kirtley walks the woods of Northern Europe so what he carries has to be small and essential.

http://paulkirtley.co.uk/2010/essent...ess-equipment/

The next website is authored by an Alaskan bush pilot who is responsible for not only his life, but the lives of his passengers as well. This is an exhaustive list of everything a pilot or sailor might carry. There are awesome gear reviews. Gear written about runs the gamut from cheap to military contract $$$. The best part is it is NOT a survivalist / prepper sight. No yammering about black helicopters or Obama.

http://www.equipped.org/toc.htm

And of course, as Joel,said earlier LEAVE A DETAILED ROUTE WITH AN ETA. It's a big world. If you leave Los Angeles on your bike you could be anywhere from Ocotillo to Las Vegas to the Avenue Of The Giants. If someone has to come get you, give them a clue where to start.

Packable shelter

Cheap shelter is the Sol 2 person bivvy blanket. Keep yourself or an immobile person out of the rain. If it's cold you can stuff it with leaf litter, dry grass, paper etc. Or snuggle while the snow falls on your campfire.

http://www.amazon.com/Adventure-Medi...rgency+blanket

The bombproof real deal is the Land Shark shelter bag. This baby is way more expensive and packs bigger.However, this thing looks well built and will actually last the night without putting your foot through it. This is SERE type kit. And the Land Shark is made right here in Van Nuys,CA.

now we're talking;
"With the increased use of infrared detection equipment by both military and law enforcement personnel, infrared cloaking capability has become an extremely important evasion tactic. The Land Shark Instant Survival Shelter reduces the wearer’s infrared signature to undetectable levels while remaining a compact and affordable survival tool."

Thanks for the useful info much appreciated.
I was originally thinking these two items

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7bw_PYI_W8

http://grabberworld.com/products/gra...r-blanket.html

both combined weigh considerable less than my 2 spare tire tubes and tire irons.

One to have as a make shift shelter the other to climb into. Or for the vary worst case a quick deploy easy to roll up in if need be. Bright side super light weight camping contained in a compact package.

Land Shark gonna go look it up.
