It's cold and raining, there is lots of residual gravel in the road from the storm a few weeks ago so it's not exactly motorcycle riding friendly right now. The sun came out for an hour yesterday but there was lots of rain and fog. I miss the road and riding but I can say I turned in some requests for time off for long weekends.
Actually that is one of my New Years Resolutions - take more overnight motorcycle trips!
In preparation for trips, I have become a list girl, just like my Dad. When planning a trip, it is easy for me to get excited about the route and the stuff we are going to see, and without a list I might forget my cell phone charger!
I think each person's list is a little bit personal. If you are a photo person you will include lots of photo gear. If you are mechanical, you might bring lots of tools. I'm a nurse so I make sure to include medications in case anyone in the group needs it.
So here is my trip list. You can see I added some blank lines to include extra stuff.
I have some pretty big saddle bags and keep a small first aid kit along with my registration and insurance card.
What else do you include in your list, and why?
