Question to those who uses a tank bag

What do you carry in your tank bags besides radio and I-pods?

I did not make yet long trips but just for two nights a small top case is enough for me as my wife has a bag on her CS. And I have not yet taken the side cases with me as they offer too much space( for two nights I mean). I believe I will not need a "white tie" stuff on my trip. :-))

Take care!

Lots of stuff!

Pistol, CAmelBack, Plexus and rag, tire pressure gauge, spare change, ball cap, cell phone and map.

I just unpacked it and that's about what was inside. I expanded the bag to fit the camelback and it was a very good working idea!!

Happy trails,

Gravity

Pretty much anything I need quick access to. Wallet, sunscreen, different set of gloves (i.e., switch from wet to dry), quick place to keep the electronics when the rain starts, all sorts of little stuff.

I am not a smoker so no need in cigs:-))
Gloves compartment: side stand plate, 2 pacs of tissues( for hands and windshield), kitchen gloves for rain, balaclava, sunglasses, pen, paper knife.
Top case(small): tyre repair kit, tyre inflation cartridge, small hand pump(bicycle), air gauge, some medicines(pain relief spray, aspirin, bandage etc), bungee straps, duct tape(highly recommended), spare pair of gloves for colder weather, pair of geans, shoes, couple of t-shirts, socks,map,rainwear, personal stuff. Small bottle of water.
Wallet, spare ear-plugs, soft tissues, cell phone - in the pockets. Some extra cash - in a different pocket.
I use a Schubert C2 with the internal sun visor now, so do not have to carry another one in the case.
No I-pod, no radio, no radar detector. BMW Navigator on the mount( do not need it in my country though). No tools. But I have to buy the spare bulbs I think.
Thanks to all for sharing!

Take care!
