PostSubject: What gear do you take along?   July 25th 2013, 10:07 am

I couldn't really find a "General Discussion" area on the forum so this looked like as good a place as any to ask this question. Being new to SxSs and not wanting to be a total unprepared douche on the trails should I have an issue, what basic gear do I need to take along with me on the trails?

Extra belt for your machine, some people carry a pump sprayer to clean their windshield and radiator.

I carry jumper cables just in cast & tow rope and most items listed above.Make sure you get the best 12 volt pump you can get so expect to spend around $50.00 those cheap ones won't last and are real slow at pumping up a tire especially if your trying to air it up while you are plugging it.

 OK, the zip ties I understand...a pretty universal item that has many uses, but steel tie wire...is this when the zip tie just wont hold a broken something out of the way.

There's a debate all by itself.....toilet paper or wipes! Toilet paper is the ole stand by that has been around for ages! A quality roll is worth every penny. But wipes....wipes leave you minty fresh!

I figure everything for 2 or more uses , space is a premium , but one I have not seen so far is WD40 it can dry out a flooded motor and get water out of electrical , but you can't go wrong with first aid . Neuromax and I came across some fella's on the stairsteps that had taken a pretty good fall with no helment , he was bleeding from his ears and was out , the fellas with him had no idea where they were or how to treat him so they were basicly watching him die from a brain injury .
