The same rules that applies to your motorcycle should apply to your riding gear and essentials. Maintain a
check list of items to carry and then check it before you leave. Buying toothpaste at 7-11 is no big deal,
but having to shop around for a sweater or swimsuit or specialty medicines that you left at home can eat up
valuable riding or rest time.
