I'm interested in finding out what others pack for roadside emergencies so I can round out my pack. If this has been posted previously I'm happy to read old posts, but my poor searching skills came up empty.

Thanks in advance for sharing!

Emg. Kit

The two items I have started to carry on overnight trips are a tire repair kit complete with a 12v air pump, and a jumper battery kit. You can buy a small lithium-ion battery kit with jumper cables that will start your bike if its battery dies on a cold morning. Both items are pretty small, and don't weigh anything, so I try to pack them on trips longer than a day or two. Every time I've every had a battery die on a bike, it's always on a Sunday in the middle of nowhere!

Tire repair kit. Next would be Swiss army knife, flashlight, rag, roll of electrical tape, zip ties, solar/emergency blanket, paracord, matches. Way to charge my phone. On chain drive bikes carry a quick link. All my bikes have ChicoBag or something similar. In CA even convenience stores will expect you to have a grocery bag.
