Other than water, food, extra clothing and gas, what types of things should I carry for all day trail rides? Are there certain tools or emergency things that you carry?

Here is what I carry in my front rack:

.22MAG Revolver, Ammo, First Aid Kit, Tow Strap, Bungee Cords, Socket Set, Poncho, Bug Spray, Flashlight, Misc.Hand Tools, Tire Repair Kit, aaaaand Electrical Tape.

Unless the local bar puts on a run, then all of that comes out and it gets filled with ice n "soda"

3. Tire plug kit and extra plugs.
4. Screwdrivers
5. Needle nose plier with wire cutter.
6. Multimeter.
7. Assorted mini and normal blade fuses and electrical connectors.
8. Mini brass brush.
9. 18ga black/red 2-conductor wire.
11. Electrical tape.
12. Mini jumper cables (more for emergency charging than for jumping - small gauge).
13. Cheap crappy pocketknife.
14. Stubby crescent wrench.
15. Metric socket set (10mm-19mm).
16. 3/8" ratchet.

25. Small tire mounting lever (not pictured here). I don't actually hope to mount tires with it, I use it for digging bark out of the bead seal.
26. The Polaris toolkit that came with the ACE (also not pictured here).

LOL That's a good one. I substitute the TP for Wet Wipes and a several pair of latex or vinyl gloves. I do a lot of hunting and Wet Wipes can be used for everything from cleaning minor scrapes and cuts and wiping your face after a dusty or muddy ride to cleaning the blood off your hands after skinning an animal and yes they're perfect for making you clean and fresh after dropping a mean deuce! :beerchug:
