Good list, not gonna go into what I carry (a lot of which is what you do) but a few more important item(s) would also be a couple (or a few) 3' webbing loops and a few carabiners for towing or to pull a buddy's bike up to the trail if it went over the  edge. Also a few different sized master links, decent chain breaker, and chain compressor for getting the master link in place. A plastic medicine bottle filled with nuts n bolts of various sizes. Allen and Torx wrench sets (the folding ones have most sizes, but at least 4, 5 and 8mm aliens). A small folding saw (Corona razor saw is worth the $$). If you're gonna carry CO2 compressed "air" make sure your set up is for Schrader valves (what dirt bike tubes have) NOT Presta (what most bicycle tubes have). Very important. Carry one 21 inch tube if possible, will work on a rear 18 inch wheel. I also have a GPS device in case I need to give my coordinates to a helo in a worst case scenario.

        If you just want to build your engine back up to stock spec, you are covered. If you want to go the extra mile and prepare a racing engine, you are also covered. In a way this book allows you to choose your own ending by giving you all the tools and knowledge you need to complete your build at whatever level you decide.

      Duffel bags are a great way to throw extra gear on a bike for any type of travel. And the Expedition Dry Duffels let you load up in style, help protect your gear, and stay stable on the bike. The innovative design makes loading and unloading easier than traditional duffel bags. The roll-top can be rolled more times for smaller loads or unrolled for just-one-more-thing capacity. And with three sizes available, there's a size best for any purpose. Short trip across town in the rain while the street clothes stay dry inside? Weekend getaway? Full-on kitchen-sink-style touring? Choose from small, medium and large.
      Four compression straps and two mounting straps keep things tight on the bike. The dual carrying handle and removable shoulder strap make off-bike transport easy.
      All Expedition Dry-Line bags are Made in the USA and feature heavy-duty vinyl construction with fully sealed radio-frequency welded seams. Roll-top closures with no-wick webbing seal out water, mud, and dust. We recommend a three roll minimum for maximum weatherproofness. Learn more about Wolfman waterproof luggage here.
