I always thought I was a well prepared individual, that was until I started riding dirt bikes and met some of the other dirt riders. I always had all my tools with me, air pumps, rain gear, etc etc when riding on the street. Little did I know the amount of tools needed for a long ride in the dirt. Every day I learn something new I should keep in my tool box for the preride check or another trick that I have been neglecting. For the latest ride up into the Berkshires I actually ALMOST had everything working. The only thing missing was the wiring on my trailer…..which I promptly did the night before at 8pm after work when I had 4 hours to drive. But hey I made it!! Here is my trusty camp site!
Well I pulled it off and I have to say that was the fastest I have ever fixed anything I think. But hey i’m getting there, one day I will be able to leave right after work with everything in tow. Even my tool roll has everything for trail side repairs now, so I am close! I’m usually good but with the husky and trailer garaged so far from me I tend to not find a lot of time during the week to take care of it.
What do you leave for last second on a ride? Or do you always have everything ready to go?
